“Giving Nothing Back” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Tom Juravich.
Tune: Tom Juravich.


We’re giving nothing back,
Giving nothing back.
I’ve heard those lines a thousand times
About how things are getting slack.
But we’re hanging tough this time,
And we’re standing out on the line
For something close to the end of time.
But we’re giving nothing back.
Oh, no, we’re giving nothing back.

The boss, he says to me,
“You just don’t understand.
The industry’s turned upside down.
And, oh, we need your helping hand.”
I’ve heard it all before,
As they showed us to the door.
That’s why we’re sticking together this time,
And we’re giving nothing back.
Oh, no, we’re giving nothing back.

He says, “With talk like that,
I’ll close the whole place down,
Take ev’rything you see outside,
And move it on to another town.”
He says, “You better learn
Half a loaf is better than none.”
But once you’re working for half, you’re fighting for crumbs,
So we’re giving nothing back.
Oh, no, we’re giving nothing back.

We’re giving nothing back.
