"UAW-CIO" (karaoke)

"UAW-CIO" (sheet music)


I was standing round a defense town one day

When I thought I overheard a soldier say,

Ev’ry tank in our camp has that U. A. Double-U. stamp,

And I’m U. A. Double-U., too, I’m proud to say.”

 

It’s the U. A. Double-U. C. I. O. makes the army roll and go,

Turning out the jeeps and tanks and airplanes ev’ryday.

It’s the U. A. Double-U. C. I. O. makes the army roll and go:

Puts wheels on the U. S. A.

 

I was there when the union came to town;

I was there when old Henry Ford went down;

I was standing by Gate Four when I heard the people roar,

“They ain’t gonna kick the autoworkers around.”

 

It’s the U. A. Double-U. C. I. O. makes the army roll and go,

Turning out the jeeps and tanks and airplanes ev’ryday.

It’s the U. A. Double-U. C. I. O. makes the army roll and go:

Puts wheels on the U. S. A.

 

I was there on that cold December day,

When we heard about Pearl Harbor far away;

I was down in Cadillac Square when the union rallied there.

To put those plans for pleasure cars away.

 

It’s the U. A. Double-U. C. I. O. makes the army roll and go,

Turning out the jeeps and tanks and airplanes ev’ryday.

It’s the U. A. Double-U. C. I. O. makes the army roll and go:

Puts wheels on the U. S. A.

 

There’ll be a union label in Berlin

When those union boys in uniform march in,

And rolling in the ranks there’ll be U. A. Double-U. tanks:

Roll Hitler out and roll the union in.

 

It’s the U. A. Double-U. C. I. O. makes the army roll and go,

Turning out the jeeps and tanks and airplanes ev’ryday.

It’s the U. A. Double-U. C. I. O. makes the army roll and go:

Puts wheels on the U. S. A.
