"We're Gonna Get a Union at Avondale" (karaoke)

"We're Gonna Get a Union at Avondale" (sheet music)


We’re gonna get a union at Avondale,

Avondale, Avondale;

We’re gonna get a union at Avondale.

It’s our right to organize!

 

Five years ago, we organized

And voted “Union yes!”

But shameless union-busting

Is what Avondale does best.

 

“Profits before safety”—

That’s Avondale’s creed.

Your life’s not worth a nickel

When you’re ruled by corporate greed.

 

We’re gonna get a union at Avondale,

Avondale, Avondale,

We’re gonna get a union at Avondale,

It’s our right to organize!

 

They’re bankrolled by the navy,!

And we have had our fill

Of seeing our tax dollars

Go to pay lawbreakers’ bills.

 

So, brothers, sisters, join us!

Support the workers’ cause.

It’s time the U.S. Navy

Showed respect for labor laws.

 

We’re gonna get a union at Avondale,

Avondale, Avondale,

We’re gonna get a union at Avondale,

It’s our right to organize!

 

We’re gonna get a union at Avondale,

Avondale, Avondale,

We’re gonna get a union at Avondale,

It’s our right to organize!
