"One Big Industrial Union" (karaoke)

"One Big Industrial Union" (sheet music)


Bring the good old red book, boys, we'll sing another song:
Sing it to the wage slave, who has not yet joined the throng
Of the revolution that will sweep the world along
To One Big Industrial Union.

Hooray! Hooray! The truth will make you free.
Hooray! Hooray! When will you workers see?
The only way you'll gain your economic liberty
Is One Big Industrial Union.

How the masters holler when they hear the dreadful sound
Of sabotage and direct action spread the world around;
They're getting ready to vamoose, with ears close to the ground,
From One Big Industrial Union.

Hooray! Hooray! The truth will make you free.
Hooray! Hooray! When will you workers see?
The only way you'll gain your economic liberty
Is One Big Industrial Union.

Now the Harvest String Trust, they would move to Germany;
The Silk Bosses of Paterson, they also want to flee
From strikes and labor troubles, but they cannot get away
From One Big Industrial Union.

Hooray! Hooray! The truth will make you free.
Hooray! Hooray! When will you workers see?
The only way you'll gain your economic liberty
Is One Big Industrial Union.

You migratory workers of the common labor clan,
We sing to you to join us as we foil the masters' plan;
You must emancipate yourself, you proletarian,
With One Big Industrial Union.

Hooray! Hooray! Let's set the wage slave free.
Hooray! Hooray! With every victory,
We'll hum the workers' anthem till all finally must be
In One Big Industrial Union.
