Newsies the Musical - The World Will Know Lyrics


JACK:
Pulitzer and Hearst, they think we're nothing'. Are we nothin'?

NEWSIES:
No!

JACK:
Pulitzer and Hearst, they think they got us. Do they got us?

NEWSIES:
No!

JACK:
Even though we ain't got hats or badges, we're a union just by saying so.
And the world will know. What's it gonna take to stop the wagons? Are we ready?

NEWSIES:
Yeah!

JACK:
What's it gonna take to stop the scabbers? Can we do it?

NEWSIES:
Yeah!

JACK:
We'll do what we gotta do until we break the will of mighty Bill and Joe.

NEWSIES:
And the world will know. And the journal too.

JACK & DAVEY:
Mister Hearst and Pulitzer, have we got news for you.

NEWSIES:
See, the world don't know know, but they're gonna pay.

JACK & DAVEY:
'Stead of hawkin' headlines we'll be makin' 'em today.

NEWSIES:
And our ranks will grow,

CRUTCHIE:
And we'll kick their rear!

NEWSIES:
And the world will know that we been here.

JACK:
When the circulation bell starts ringing, will we hear it?

NEWSIES:
No!

JACK:
What if the Delancey's come out swinging? Will we hear it?

NEWSIES:
When ya got a hundred voices singing, who can hear a lousy whistle blow?
And the world will know that this ain't no game,
That we got a ton of rotten fruit and perfect aim.
So they gave their word. Well, it ain't worth beans.
Now they're gonna see what "Stop the presses" really means.
And the old will weep, and go back to sleep.
And we got no choice but to see it through,

RACE:
And we found our voice,

SPECS:
And I lost my shoe!

NEWSIES:
And the world will-

JACK:
Pulitzer may own the world but he don't own us!

NEWSIES, DAVEY & LES:
Pulitzer may own the world but he don't own us!

JACK:
Pulitzer may crack the whip but he won't whip us!

NEWSIES:
Pultizer may crack the whip but he won't whip us!
And the world will know we been keepin' score.
Either they gives us our rights or we gives them a war.
We been down too long, and we paid our dues.

CRUTCHIE:
And the things we do today will be tomorrow's news.

NEWSIES:
And the die is cast, and the torch is passed.
And a roar will rise from the streets below,
And our ranks will grow and grow and grow
And so the world will feel our fire and finally know!
Pulitzer may own the world but he don't own us!

JACK:
Pulitzer may own the world but he don't own us!

NEWSIES:
Pulitzer may crack the whip but he won't whip us!

JACK:
Pulitzer may crack the whip but he won't whip us!

NEWSIES:
So the world says "No!" well the kids do too!
Try to walk all over us, we'll stomp all over you!

CRUTCHIE:
Can they kick us out? Take away our vote?

NEWSIES:
Will we let 'em stuff this crock of garbage down our throat?
No! Everyday we wait is a day we lose!

NEWSIES:
And this ain't for fun! And it ain't for show!
And we'll fight 'em toe to toe to toe!
And Joe, your world will feel the fire and finally, finally know!
