Back to the land, we must all lend a hand
To the farms and the fields we must go.
There’s a job to be done
Though we can’t fire a gun
We can still do our bit with a hoe.
When your muscles are strong
You will soon get along
And you’ll think that the country life’s grand;
We’re all needed now,
We must speed with the plough,
So come with us – back to the land.
