“The Picket Boogie” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Judy McCallen.
Tune: “Hokey Pokey.”


They keep the raises out; they put some cutbacks in.
The offer that they’re making is a crying sin.
But we’ll do the Picket Boogie, and we’ll turn it all around.
And that’s what it’s all about!

We’ll do the Picket Boogie.
We’ll do the Picket Boogie.
We’ll do the Picket Boogie.
And that’s what it’s all about. Hey!

The language that they put in keeps better pensions out.
Looking at their proposals, we want to scream and shout.
Let’s do the Picket Boogie, and we’ll turn it all around.
And that’s what it’s all about!

We’ll do the Picket Boogie.
We’ll do the Picket Boogie.
We’ll do the Picket Boogie.
And that’s what it’s all about. Hey!

They rake the profits in until their pockets bulge out.
Then, they say our families can do without.
So, we’ll do the Picket Boogie, and we’ll turn it all around.
And that’s what it’s all about!

We’ll do the Picket Boogie.
We’ll do the Picket Boogie.
We’ll do the Picket Boogie.
And that’s what it’s all about. Hey!
