War on the Workers
– Anne Feeney

Listen up, we’ve got a war zone here today
Right in our heartland, and across the USA.
These multinational bastards don’t use tanks and guns it’s true,
But they’ve declared a war on us, fight back, it’s up to you!

It’s a war on the workers,
It’s a war on the workers,
It’s a war on the workers,
And it’s time we started calling the shots.

Going to work could be the death of you and me,
But we’re not unarmed — our weapon’s solidarity.
Jim Beals and Karen Silkwood, the list goes on and on,
With every year that passes 60,000 more are gone.

It’s a war on the workers,
It’s a war on the workers,
It’s a war on the workers,
And it’s time we started calling the shots.

When they boost your co-pay,
Don’t you know what to say?
When they talk privatization
And co-operation,
When they call you a “team,”
You better learn how to scream.

It’s a war on the workers,
It’s a war on the workers,
It’s a war on the workers,
And it’s time we started calling the shots.

They can lock us out, they can lock us up,
We cannot give in.
No more lies, no compromise,
We’ll battle till we’ll win.

It’s a war on the workers,
It’s a war on the workers,
It’s a war on the workers,
And it’s time we started calling the shots.

When they talk “flexibility,”
Every working stiff can see.
When they poison your water,
Don’t go like lambs to the slaughter.
When they foul up the air,
You’ve got to show that you care.
When they talk WTO,
You’d best be screaming “hell no!”

It’s a war on the workers,
It’s a war on the workers,
It’s a war on the workers,

It’s a war on public education,
It’s a war on child labor protection,
It’s a war on the 8 hour day,
It’s a war on occupational health and safety,
It’s a war on Social Security,
Now thanks to
WTO,
GATT, and
NAFTA,
MAI,
the IMF, and
the World Bank
it’s a world wide war –

It’s a war on the workers,
It’s a war on the workers,
It’s a war on the workers,

And it’s time sisters and brothers,
You know it’s time right now,
I said it’s time we started calling the shots!
