An Anonymous Worker

"Masters, Beware!" (karaoke)

"Masters, Beware!" (sheet music)


Over the hills with their blankets they go
Into the woods and the mines down below;
Blazing the trails, laying the rails,
Piercing the mountains, onward they go.

Masters, beware! Masters, take care!
The wage slaves are joining this one union grand. So, beware! Beware!
The wage slaves are joining this one union grand. So, beware! Beware!

He sails o'er the seas to far distant lands,
Piling up wealth on every hand,
Building castles and mansions so grand,
Yet robbed of his wealth by an exploiting hand.

Masters, beware! Masters, take care!
The wage slaves are joining this one union grand. So, beware! Beware!
The wage slaves are joining this one union grand. So, beware! Beware!

Yet locks, bolts, and bars do not prisons make
When man he strikes for freedom's sake.
The Industrial Union bids ye slaves arise;
And the earth will be yours, if you'll only get wise.

Masters, beware! Masters, take care!
The wage slaves are joining this one union grand. So, beware! Beware!
The wage slaves are joining this one union grand. So, beware! Beware!
