The World Will Know Music by Alan Menken.
Lyrics by Jack Feldman.

JACK:
Pulitzer and Hearst
They think we're nothin'
Are we nothin'?

NEWSIES:
No!

JACK:
Pulitzer and Hearst
They think they got us
Do they got us?

NEWSIES:
No!

JACK:
Even though we ain't got hats or badges
We're a union just by saying so
And the world will know!

What's it gonna take to stop the wagons?
Are we ready?

NEWSIES:
Yeah!

JACK:
What's it gonna take to stop the scabbers?
Can we do it?

NEWSIES:
Yeah!

JACK:
We'll do what we gotta do
Until we break the will of mighty Bill and Joe

NEWSIES:
And the World will know
And the Journal too
Mister Hearst and Pulitzer
Have we got news for you
Now the world will hear
What we got to say
We been hawkin' headlines
But we're makin' 'em today
And our ranks will grow

CRUTCHY:
And we'll kick their rear

NEWSIES:
And the world will know
That we been here

JACK:
When the circulation bell starts ringin'
Will we hear it?

NEWSIES:
No!

JACK:
What if the Delanceys come out swingin'
Will we hear it?

NEWSIES:
No!
When you got a hundred voices singin'
Who can hear a lousy whistle blow?
And the world will know
That this ain't no game
That we got a ton of rotten fruit and perfect aim
So they gave their word
But it ain't worth beans
Now they're gonna see
What "stop the presses" really means
And the day has come
And the time is now
And the fear is gone

BOOTS:
And our name is mud

NEWSIES:
And the strike is on

BOOTS:
And I can't stand blood

NEWSIES:
And the world will –

JACK:
Pulitzer may own the World but he don't own us!

NEWSIES:
Pulitzer may own the World but he don't own us!

JACK:
Pulitzer may crack the whip but he won't whip us!

NEWSIES:
Pulitzer may crack the whip but he won't whip us!
And the world will know
And the world will learn
And the world will wonder how we made the tables turn
And the world will see
That we had to choose
That the things we do today will be tomorrow's news
And the old will fall
And the young stand tall
And the time is now
And the winds will blow
And our ranks will grow and grow and grow and so
The world will feel the fire
And finally know!
