"The Bonehead Working Fool" (karaoke)

"The Bonehead Working Fool" (sheet music)


Mister Slave, Mister Slave, listen to the call
Of the brave to the brave: take the world for all.
Now you need the light and might to free all / homeless working folk.
Look around, all around, and you will see,
Hear the pound, hear the sound of machinery,
How the owners fool you, how they rule you,
Just hear the bosses blow:

"Hurry up! Hurry up! On my new machine,
Man, you're so slow; boss is losing money! It displaces seventy men,
And if you cannot speed up, you are fired then!
Go and look! Go and look! For another master,
Good or bad, you sure will make him wealthy!
It's God darn hard to wake you up!
You're a bonehead working fool!"

Mister Slave, Mister Slave, hear the union grand.
It's a wave, it's a wave rolling through the land.
This the masters fear; we are here to free our / class from slavery.
Get a book, get a book, read the word of light.
Take a look, take a look, join the band of might.
Come and be a Wobbly; Then, you'll probably
Not let the bosses cry:

"Hurry up! Hurry up! On my new machine,
Man, you're so slow; boss is losing money! It displaces seventy men,
And if you cannot speed up, you are fired then!
Go and look! Go and look! For another master,
Good or bad, you sure will make him wealthy!
It's God darn hard to wake you up!
You're a bonehead working fool!"

"Hurry up! Hurry up! On my new machine,
Man, you're so slow; boss is losing money! It displaces seventy men,
And if you cannot speed up, you are fired then!
Go and look! Go and look! For another master,
Good or bad, you sure will make him wealthy!
It's God darn hard to wake you up!
You're a bonehead working fool!"
