"One Big Union for Two" (sheet music)


[] I've decided the only way I can woo you

Is to take a hint from the A. F. of L. and the C. I. O.

 

[] Now you're talking.

Perhaps, I might listen to you.

I don't say that I'll say "yes,"

But I don't say I'll say "no."

 

[] Then it's not too late to negotiate.

 

[] Oh well, we'll see.

 

[♀♂] Perhaps we can agree.

 

[] I'm on a campaign to make you mine.

I'll picket you until you sign

In One Big Union for two.

No court's injunction can make me stop

Until your love is all closed shop

In One Big Union for two.

Seven days a week, I want the right

To call you mine both day and night.

The hours may be long,

But fifty million union members can't be wrong.

 

[] When we have joined up, perhaps there'll be

A new recruit, or two or three.

 

[♀♂] For that's what teamwork can do

In One Big Union for two.

 

[] We won't have sit-downs inside our gate.

We'll never need to arbitrate

In One Big Union for two.

 

[] We'll have no lockouts to make us frown.

No scabbing when I'm out of town

In One Big Union for two.

 

[] Will you pay your dues?

They're very light:

A kiss each day, a kiss each night.

Our life will be a song...

 

[♀♂] For fifty million union members can't be wrong.

 

[] When we have signed up and made the grade,

We'll add a member...

 

[] Union made...

 

[♀♂] Who looks like me and like you

In One Big Union for two.
