The Cloakmamer's Union

Oh, the cloakmakers' union is a no-good union,
It's a company union of the bosses.
They right-wing cloakmakers and the Socialist fakers
Are making by the workers double crosses.
     And the Hillquits and Dubinskys and the Thomases
     Are making by the workers false promises,
They preach Socialism, but they practice Fascism
To preserve Capitalism by the bosses.
     Hoo Ha!

Recorded by Glazer, Songs for Sectarians.
A very popular item in the late thirties. Sing it with a
pronounced Yiddish accent.
