Our bayonet is as sharp as it used to be.
The worker’s pick is ready.
The Red Army man and the miner
– the base of the flaming soviets.
The vermin ran away squealing
And kept running faster and faster.
Now it’s time to stick the pick
Into the black rock of the Donbass.
The red horizon is opening up!
Heroes, don’t expect to rest:
The Don front is calling all of us
And the mines and their working faces are calling us.
