The Skeleton Army Stood up and fought

For a Worthing that grew from beneath

Against the control

Of outsiders who looked

On our lives with teetotal contempt

The Skeleton Army

Took the fight to the streets

Against fundamentalist mores

Against troops and police

Who truncheoned dissent

To the rule of the moneyed elite

The Skeleton Army

With its banners and pride

Was the raw living heart of this town

It will rise up anew

For it isn’t dead yet

Just lying asleep in our soul!
