"Ten Little Sweatshops" (karaoke)

"Ten Little Sweatshops" (sheet music)


Ten little sweatshops the bosses thought were fine;

The union organized one; then there were nine!

 

Nine little sweatshops working very late;

Another bunch of workers struck; then there were eight!

 

Eight little sweatshops stinking to high heaven;

The sanitary code got one; then there were seven!

 

Seven little sweatshops, you should have heard the kicks

The workers made about their pay; then there were six!

 

Six little sweatshops, the union made a drive

And picketed another; then there were five!

 

Five little sweatshops rotten to the core;

Another signed up with the union; then there were four!

 

Four little sweatshops, they’re going fast, you see;

One sold out to another; then there were only three!

 

Three little sweatshops, the workers vowed to sue

For back wages due to them; then there were two!

 

Two little sweatshops, another battle won

By union solidarity; then there was one!

 

One lonely sweatshop, our tale is almost done;

All of them were organized; now there are none!
