Makin' Whoopee (Union Version)

Another night, another day
Of livin' tight, from pay to pay
And here's the reason my life ain't easin'
Ain't got a union.

I go to work when work is there
I never shirk, I do my share
It doesn't matter, my wallet's flatter
Without a union.

break:    Sometimes I sit and daydream,

Thinkin' how things could be,

Silly to some it may seem

I'd like seniority, and

Grievance procedure, when things ain't fair
Vacation leisure, without a care
Benefit fringes, I know it hinges
On bein' union.

Sisters and brothers, hear what I say
We need each other, there's just one way
We've gpt to realize, we've got to organize
Into a union.

From magazine Talking Union, edited by Schniderman
tune: Makin' Whoopee
