Dropkick Murphys – Workers Song

This will wake up up, if you aren’t already.

Yeh, this one’s for the workers who toil night and day
By hand and by brain to earn your pay
Who for centuries long past for no more than your bread
Have bled for your countries and counted your dead

In the factories and mills, in the shipyards and mines
We’ve often been told to keep up with the times
For our skills are not needed, they’ve streamlined the job
And with sliderule and stopwatch our pride they have robbed

We’re the first ones to starve, we’re the first ones to die
The first ones in line for that pie-in-the-sky
And we’re always the last when the cream is shared out
For the worker is working when the fat cat’s about

  • DJ

    Half the world lives on two dollars a day or less. Only 20% of the world population has internet access. If you’re reading this on a computer you own, you ARE one of the fat cats, regardless of your occupation.

  • Then I must denounce my fat cattery and immediately set to overthrow myself.
