"Roll the Hours Back" (karaoke)

"Roll the Hours Back" (sheet music)


First, we worked twelve hours, then ten, now eight,

And I don't understand why we have to wait,

Just to roll the hours back again,

We're gonna roll the hours back again,

We’re gonna roll, gonna roll, the hours back again.

 

One, two workers, three workers, four,

Locked outside of the fact'ry door,

Shoutin’, "Roll the hours back again,

We're gonna roll the hours back again,

We're gonna roll, gonna roll, the hours back again."

 

Hundreds of hungry, thousands of poor,

Millions of workers marchin' out the door,

Singin’, "Roll the hours back again,

We're gonna roll the hours back again,

We're gonna roll, gonna roll, the hours back again."

 

Bosses by the dozen, bosses by the gross,

Bosses by the carload feelin' real remorse,

Hearin', "Roll the hours back again,

We're gonna roll the hours back again,

We're gonna roll, gonna roll, the hours back again."

 

First, we worked twelve hours, then ten, now eight,

And I don't understand why we have to wait,

Just to roll the hours back again,

We're gonna roll the hours back again,

We’re gonna roll, gonna roll, the hours back again.
