    Poland has not yet perished,

    We shall with sabre retrieve.
    
    𝄆 March, march, Dąbrowski,
    From Italy to Poland.
    Under your command
    We shall rejoin the nation. 𝄇
    
    We'll cross the Vistula, we'll cross the Warta,
    We shall be Polish.
    Bonaparte has given us the example
    Of how we should prevail.

    From Italy to Poland.
    Under your command
    We shall rejoin the nation. 𝄇

    From Italy to Poland.
    Under your command
    We shall rejoin the nation. 𝄇
    
    A father, in tears,
    Says to his Basia
    Listen, our boys are said
    To be beating the tarabans.
    
    𝄆 March, march, Dąbrowski,
    From Italy to Poland.
    Under your command
    We shall rejoin the nation. 𝄇
