DAVEY
Now is the time to seize the day
Stare down the odds and seize the day
Minute by minute that's how you win it
We will find a way
But let us seize the day
Courage cannot erase our fear
Courage is when we face our fear
Tell those with power safe in their tower
We will not obey!

DAVEY & JACK
Behold the brave battalion that stands side by side
Too few in number and too proud to hide
Then say to the others who did not follow through
You're still our brothers, and we will fight for you

DAVEY, JACK, and CRUTCHIE
Now is the time to seize the day
Stare down the odds and seize the day

NEWSIES
Once we've begun
If we stand as one
Someday becomes somehow
And a prayer becomes a vow

JACK
And the strike starts right damn now!

DAVEY
Now is the time to seize the day

NEWSIES
Now is the time to seize the day

DAVEY
Answer the call and don't delay

NEWSIES
Answer the call and don't delay

DAVEY & NEWSIES
Wrongs will be righted
If we're united
Let us seize the day

JACK
Now let 'em hear it loud and clear

NEWSIES
Now let 'em hear it loud and clear

JACK
Like it or not we're drawing near

NEWSIES
Like it or not we're drawing near

JACK & NEWSIES
Proud and defiant
We'll slay the giant
Judgment day is here
Houston to Harlem, look what's begun
One for all and all for one!
Strike! Strike! Strike! Strike! Strike! Strike!
Oh! Strike!

(Instrumental-Dance Number)

Now is the time to seize the day
They're gonna see there's hell to pay
Nothing can break us
No one can make us quit before we're done
One for all and all for
One for all and all for
One for all and all for one!
