let's palanquin the leader
prize him with peace

let's baton charge the protesters
knock them off their feet

let's rough up the media
tell them the news that's fit

it's historically scientific -
you can get away with it

we can marry off our daughters
or sell them on the sly

we can rustle up your sons
and send them off to die
slap down the businessman
filch their cash with our hands

draw and quarter the landowner
parcel out what we can

we'll lock down parliament,
make politics hell

and after army integration,
merge the police with the YCL!

the people's guardians know no fear
an anthem for the new Nepal -

you can get away with it here
