Polish anthem

The Polish anthem is a song entitled Dabrowski's Mazurka. The music and the lyrics were created in 1797.
Words of the hymn:

Poland has not yet succumbed.
As long as we remain,
What the foe by force has seized,
Sword in hand we'll gain.

Chorus:
March! March, Dabrowski!
March from Italy to Poland!
Under your command
We shall reach our land.

Cross the Vistula and Warta
And Poles we shall be;
We've been shown by Bonaparte
Ways to victory.

Chorus:
March! March, ...

As Czarniecki Poznan town regains,
Fighting with the Swede,
To free our fatherland from chains,
We shall return by sea.

Chorus:
March! March, ...

And the father to Barbara,
Says and crying:
"Listen that, propably ours
are playing drums!"
