"The Road to Emancipation" (karaoke)

"The Road to Emancipation" (sheet music)


Now, working folk, you know you live a life of misery,
So join the union of your class, determined to be free;
Don't let the master gouge your lives for many years to come,
But organize upon the job and put him on the bum.

It's the road to Emancipation; it's the right way to go
For the toilers to run the nation and the world, both high and low;
Kick in and do your duty for it's up to you and me;
It's the One Big Union of the Workers that will bring prosperity.

Don't be a meek and lowly slave like lots of those you meet;
Don't be a servile scissor-bill and lick the bosses' feet;
Don't let them starve you off the earth; don't fear their prison cell;
Make your laws in the union hall: the rest can go to hell.

It's the road to Emancipation; it's the right way to go
For the toilers to run the nation and the world, both high and low;
Kick in and do your duty for it's up to you and me;
It's the One Big Union of the Workers that will bring prosperity.

Now, working folk, the masters, they have no more jobs to give:
You must form the taking habit, if you ever wish to live;
Postponing meals is suicide on the installment plan,
So organize to get the goods and take them like we can.

It's the road to Emancipation; it's the right way to go
For the toilers to run the nation and the world, both high and low;
Kick in and do your duty for it's up to you and me;
It's the One Big Union of the Workers that will bring prosperity.
