No weak men in the books at home
The strong men who have made the world
History lives on the books at home
The books at home

[Chorus]
It's not made by great men [Repeat: x4]

The past lives on in your front room
The poor still weak the rich still rule
History lives in the books at home
The books at home

[Chorus]

The past lives in the books at home
No weak men in the books at home
History lives in the books at home
The books at home

[Chorus]
