about

Anthem for The Free Reed Liberation Orchestra, an apocryphal, anarcho-syndicalist accordion troupe based in post-war, central Jersey.

lyrics

There is power in the bellows
Power in the reeds
Power in the squeeze
Of the Accordion

But it all amounts to nothing
If our mothers we don't please
We are the Free Reed Liberation Orchestra

Accordions forever!
We're fleet and we're light!
Harmony on the left hand
Melody on the Right

But it all amounts to nothing
If our mothers we don't please
We are the Free Reed Liberation Orchestra

lyrics by Gary Chapin, 2010
