"Part of the Union" (karaoke)

"Part of the Union" (sheet music)


Now, I’m a union man,

Amazed at what I am.

I say what I think, that the company stinks.

Yes, I’m a union man.

When we meet in the local hall,

I’ll be voting with ‘em all.

With a helluva shout, it’s “Out, brothers, out!”

And the rise of the factory’s fall.

 

Oh, you don’t get me; I’m part of the union.

You don’t get me; I’m part of the union.

You don’t get me; I’m part of the union

Till the day I die, till the day I die.

 

As a union man, I’m wise

To the lies of the company spies.

And I don’t get fooled by the company rules

‘Cause I always read between the lines.

And I always get my way

If I strike for higher pay.

When I show my card to the Scotland Yard,

This is what I say:

 

Oh, you don’t get me; I’m part of the union.

You don’t get me; I’m part of the union.

You don’t get me; I’m part of the union

Till the day I die, till the day I die.

 

Before the union did appear,

My life was half as clear.

Now, I’ve got the pow’r to the working hour

And ev’ry other day of the year.

So, though I’m a working man,

I can ruin the government’s plan.

I’m not too hard, but the sight of my card

Makes me some kind of superman.

 

Oh, you don’t get me; I’m part of the union.

You don’t get me; I’m part of the union.

You don’t get me; I’m part of the union

Till the day I die, till the day I die.

 

You don’t get me; I’m part of the union.

You don’t get me; I’m part of the union.

You don’t get me; I’m part of the union

Till the day I die, till the day I die.
