An Anonymous Worker

"Rock-A-Bye-Baby" (karaoke)

"Rock-A-Bye-Baby" (sheet music)

Rock-a-bye, baby, on the treetop.

When you grow up, you’ll work in a shop.

When you are married, your spouse will work, too,

So that the rich will have nothing to do.


Hush-a-bye, baby, on the treetop.

When you grow old, your wages will stop.

When you have spent the little you’ve saved,

It’s off to the poorhouse and then to the grave.


If you want clean clothes and a hot meal each day,

If you want a good home and a nice place to play,

If you want to go to school instead of to a work crew,

Then tell daddy to join the I. Double Double-U.


If you want to live free from wage slavery,

If you want to end the bosses’ chicanery,

If you want a good life from the work that you do,

Then you join the junior union, too.
