Translation

They don't allow us to raise our voice. 
My negro brother Paul Robeson. 
We sing in our raised voice. 
They don't like, they don't like 
My negro brother Paul Robeson. 

They're fear-struck Robeson. 
They're fear-struck as they hear our war cry. 
They're fear-struck as they see our red eye. 
They're fear-struck as they feel our vigor of bravery, Robeson. 
My negro brother Paul Robeson. 

They are afraid of living. 
They are afraid of dying. 
They are afraid of remembering. 
They are afraid of dreaming. 
They are afraid Robeson.
