Products manufactured by various industrial enterprises in excess of the plan being placed in a special fund of the Supreme Command.
The front receives everything it needs
From heroic workers behind the lines.
Our surplus force
Is gathered in a special fund...
Try your best and hurry your neighbor,
Be proud of your labor successes.
Let the mighty victory fund grow,
The fund that will defeat Hitler's hordes!
More tunics, boots and uniforms
For fighters and commanders!
More deadly metal
To burn the Fascist vipers.
More cannon, rifles, mines and bullets!
More locomotives and train cars!
More mortars, machine guns,
Ships, missiles and planes!
More bread, vegetables and meat
To send to the front every hour!
Tank follows tank into service...
More coal, oil and gasoline!
