The Peace Collective: All Together Now - on the centenary of the 1914 WW1 Christmas truce

Peter Hooton, singer with The Farm, says of his song All Together Now, which he wrote in 1990 to commemorate the 1914 Christmas truce in the first world war: "It's about the working classes being sent to war. People across a divide who probably had more in common with each other than the people who had sent them to war in the first place."

Lyrics

Remember boy that your forefathers died
Lost in millions for a country's pride
Never mention the trenches of Belgium
When they stopped fighting and they were one

A spirit stronger than war was at work that night
December 1914 cold, clear and bright
Countries' borders were right out of sight
They joined together and decided not to fight

All together now, all together now
All together now in no man's land (together)
All together now (all together)
all together now (all together)
All together now (together, together)
In no man's land (together, together)

The same old story again
All those tears shed in vain
Nothing learnt and nothing gained
Only hope remains

All together now, all together now
All together now in no man's land (together)
All together now (all together),all together now (all together)
All together now in no man's land (together)
All together now (all together now),all together now (all together now)
All together now (together, together)
In no man's land (together, together)

The boys had their say, they said no (all together now)
Stop the slaughter, let's go home
Let's go, let's go (all together now)
Let's go (all together now), let's go home
All together now (together, together)
In no man's land (together, together)
All together now (all together now),
all together now (all together)
All together now (together, together)
In no man's land (together, together)
