Lyrics: Anonymous.
Tune: “Three O’Clock in the Morning.”


It’s three o’clock in the morning;
I’ve worked the whole night through.
Daylight soon will be dawning,
Yet I will not be through.
If we were organized rightly
All in the Grand O.B.U.,
We would not be slaves forever, but this is up to you.

Working, working, working from night until morn.
Slaving, slaving, slaving since the day I was born.
Toiling, toiling, yes, I’m a wage slave still.
Am I to be a slave forever in Gary’s Mill?

It’s three o’clock in the morning;
I’ve worked the whole night through.
Daylight soon will be dawning,
Yet I will not be through.
If we were organized rightly
All in the Grand O.B.U.,
We would not be slaves forever, but this is up to you.

Workers, workers, why can’t we stand hand in hand?
Come one, come all, join that industrial band.
Why not line up and make industry stand still?
Then, we will not be slaves in Gary’s Mill!
