    Ooh, there's no bread, let them eat cake
    There's no end to what they'll take
    Flaunt the fruits of noble birth
    Wash the salt into the earth

    But they're marching to Bastille Day
    La guillotine will claim her bloody prize
    Free the dungeons of the innocent
    The king will kneel, and let his kingdom rise

    Ooh, bloodstained velvet, dirty lace
    Naked fear on every face
    See them bow their heads to die
    As we would bow as they rode by

    And we're marching to Bastille Day
    La guillotine will claim her bloody prize
    Sing, o choirs of cacophony
    The king has kneeled, to let his kingdom rise

    Lessons taught, but never learned
    All around us, anger burns
    Guide the future by the past
    Long ago, the mould was cast

    For they marched up to Bastille Day
    La guillotine claimed her bloody prize
    Hear the echoes of the centuries
    Power isn't all that money buys, whoa
