"An Interlude-Beginning To Take It Back" as written by and Nigel/dunstan Hunter....
Words to describe Nicaragua of old
Cash crops and hunger and US control
Coffee and sugar on company land
Made to supply what the boss would demand

Then one July morning in seventy-nine
Nicaragua decided to leave it behind

And the people are learning to take back their lives
As the country will change, Sandinista survives

Women are winning what they've never known
The power to organize outside the home
Starting to find what is equal and fair
Ensuring that this revolution is shared

Regaining lost chances, demanding much more
Running the factories, fighting the war

(Repeat chorus)

Nobody claims that it's over and done
There's too much depends on enlistment and guns
And raising their children and filling their plates
And chasing the Contras to Washington State

The Yankee conspiracy thrown to the ground
That's where the spirit of change can be found

(Repeat chorus)
