(Schlanger) NOW SING "Now Sing: the guards howling, / Beat him with obscenities. / But he did. / His legend is he was singing venceremos when they shot him. / Even for them it was too much. / They killed him they couldn't kill him enough. / Victor Jara sin guitarra who'd held out with bloody stumps and sung."
