Farewell and Adieu (Dick Greenhaus) (To tune of old sea chantey: Gay Spanish Ladies) Farewell and adieu to you, ethics and scruples Farewell and adieu to those high moral stands For we've found that our greed can transcend any need And we'll sell our own mothers for cash in our hands. cho: So we'll lie and we'll cheat, deceive and dissemble The lover of truth has turned into a whore Just like grasping companies we've grown to resemble We'll do anything for a few dollars more. For forty long years, we were good friends of labor, We shared in its struggle, its hope and its pain We we've learned we can make more by screwing our neighbor And concern for the worker has gone down the drain. Still waving the hypocrite's pallid pink banner Our once-shining mission now covered with rust; With deep-felt concern, and a liberal manner We charge out in search of a union to bust! Still spouting the now-empty liberal slogans We fight evil-doers, unless they are us, No cause too ridiculous, no act too self-serving As long as it pays well, we'll start up a fuss.
