Lyrics: Sean Carleton.
Tune: “Redemption Song.”


Old bosses, yes, they rob us,
Exploit us for profit,
Condemn us to wage slavery,
Alienate us from our work.
But my hand is made strong
By a band of fellow workers.
We must join together in class struggle
Triumphantly.

So, won’t you help to sing this song of redemption?
’Cause all we ever have…. Wobbly songs, Wobbly songs….

Emancipate yourself from wage slavery.
Only we can free ourselves
Have no fear for authority
‘Cause none can stop our tide.
How long shall they kill us workers
While we remain divided?
Yes, it is time to organize
In One Big Union.

So, won’t you help to sing this song of redemption?
’Cause all we ever have…. Wobbly songs, Wobbly songs….

Sing, fellow workers.
In ev’ry where now…. in ev’ry day now….
In ev’ry where now…. in ev’ry day now….

Emancipate yourself from wage slavery.
Only we can free ourselves.
Have no fear for authority
’Cause none can stop our tide.
How long shall they kill us workers
While we remain divided?
Yes, it is time to organize
In One Big Union.

So, won’t you help to sing this song of redemption?
’Cause all we ever have…. Wobbly songs, Wobbly songs….
