Land of Plenty
Please tell me if it is true.
Land of Plenty
What they did to you?
Land of Plenty
They stripped your wheat fields bare
Land of Plenty
As if you were not there.

Land of Plenty
Your people lived off you
But it started
In nineteen thirty two.
Land of Plenty
Your people you could feed
But that year
You were robbed for foreign greed.

Land of plenty
Your people could not eat
Satan' s soldiers
Collected all your wheat
In the name of
An ideology
That was written
To give equality.

Land of plenty
Refused the right to give
And Ukraine was
Refused the right to live.
Land of Plenty
As if you were not there
Land of Plenty
The Harvests of Despair.

Land of Plenty
Two years with empty hands
And the world still
Refused to understand
That your nation
Just wanted to be free
Land of Plenty
Of nineteen thirty three.
