Jeszcze Polska nie zginęła,
Kiedy my żyjemy.
Co nam obca przemoc wzięła,
Szablą odbierzemy.

Z ziemi włoskiej do Polski.
Za twoim przewodem
Złączym się z narodem.

Będziem Polakami.
Dał nam przykład Bonaparte,
Jak zwyciężać mamy.

Dla ojczyzny ratowania
Wrócim się przez morze.

Słuchaj jeno, pono nasi
Biją w tarabany.
