LABOR DAY

by Brian Krashpad

 

Workers of the world unite

You got nothin' to lose but your chains

They gonna take your job, you gotta stand and fight

You got nothin' to lose but your chains

 

Refrain:

Don't piss on me, and tell me that it's rainin'

Or even that it's only "trickle down"

Steal our rights and give a tax break to the rich man

Ya better watch out 'cause what goes around comes around

 

Ya got money for a foreign war

We got nothin' to lose but our chains

And the gasman's takin' more and more

We got nothin' to lose but our chains

 

Refrain

 

King George fiddled while New Orleans drowned

We got nothin' to lose but our chains

But what goes up it must come down

We got nothin' to lose but our chains

 

Refrain

 

No health insurance for the workin' man

We got nothin' to lose but our chains

While you spend our money in Afghanistan

We got nothin' to lose but our chains

 

Refrain

 

Can't afford to go to no hospital

We got nothin to lose but our chains

We're gonna storm the state house and the Capitol

We got nothin to lose but our chains

 

Refrain
