Rome never looks where she treads
On our stomachs, our hearts, or our heads

And we gather behind them in hordes
With only our tongues for our swords
For we are the little folk, we!
Leave us alone and you'll see

Rats gnawing cables in two
How they must love what they do
Yes and we little folk too
Working our works out of view

Too little to love or to hate
How we can drag down the state
Yes it is true we are not strong
Yes and we'll guide them along

Yes we have always been slaves
And then we shall dance on your graves
For we are the little folk we
Leave us alone and you'll see

We are the rot at the roof
We are the thorn in the foot
