Tune: “Children, Go Where I Send Thee.”


Go, I shall send thee. How shall I send thee?
I shall send thee one by one:
One for the One Big Union, greatest thing on earth!

Go, I shall send thee. How shall I send thee?
I shall send thee two by two:
Two for the opposing classes.
One for the One Big Union, greatest thing on earth!

Go, I shall send thee. How shall I send thee?
I shall send thee three by three:
Three for the Three Shining Stars,
Two for the opposing classes.
One for the One Big Union, greatest thing on earth!

Go, I shall send thee. How shall I send thee?
I shall send thee four by four:
Four, I say, for the four-hour day,
Three for the Three Shining Stars,
Two for the opposing classes.
One for the One Big Union, greatest thing on earth!

Go, I shall send thee. How shall I send thee?
I shall send thee five by five:
Five for the five in 1905, a union born then and still alive,
Four, I say for the four-hour day,
Three for the Three Shining Stars,
Two for the opposing classes.
One for the One Big Union, greatest thing on earth!

Go, I shall send thee. How shall I send thee?
I shall send thee six by six:
Six for the Six Departments,
Five for the five in 1905, a union born then and still alive,
Four, I say, for the four-hour day,
Three for the Three Shining Stars,
Two for the opposing classes.
One for the One Big Union, greatest thing on earth!

Go, I shall send thee. How shall I send thee?
I shall send thee seven by seven:
Seven, you see, for the GEB,
Six for the Six Departments,
Five for the five in 1905, a union born then and still alive,
Four, I say for the four-hour day,
Three for the Three Shining Stars,
Two for the opposing classes.
One for the One Big Union, greatest thing on earth!

Go, I shall send thee. How shall I send thee?
I shall send thee eight by eight:
Eight for the workers at the fact’ry gate,
Seven, you see, for the GEB,
Six for the Six Departments,
Five for the five in 1905, a union born then and still alive,
Four, I say, for the four-hour day,
Three for the Three Shining Stars,
Two for the opposing classes.
One for the One Big Union, greatest thing on earth!

Go, I shall send thee. How shall I send thee?
I shall send thee nine by nine:
Nine for the workers on the picket line,
Eight for the workers at the fact’ry gate,
Seven, you see, for the GEB,
Six for the Six Departments,
Five for the five in 1905, a union born then and still alive,
Four, I say, for the four-hour day,
Three for the Three Shining Stars,
Two for the opposing classes.
One for the One Big Union, greatest thing on earth!

Go, I shall send thee. How shall I send thee?
I shall send thee ten by ten:
Ten for the workers in the state pen,
Nine for the workers on the picket line,
Eight for the workers at the fact’ry gate,
Seven, you see, for the GEB,
Six for the Six Departments,
Five for the five in 1905, a union born then and still alive,
Four, I say, for the four-hour day,
Three for the Three Shining Stars,
Two for the opposing classes.
One for the One Big Union, greatest thing on earth!

The greatest thing on earth!
