Lyrics: Albert Morgan.
Tune: Albert Morgan.


I think I sing this little song,
Hope I say it nothing wrong,
Hope my song she bring you cheer
Just like couple of shots of beer.

Union man! Union man!
He must have full dinner can!
AFL-CIO
Callin’ strike: out she go!

We all got contract; she expire;
Mister Lewis mad like fire;
Miners striking too much time;
Uncle Sam take over mine.

Union man! Union man!
He must have full dinner can!
AFL-CIO
Callin’ strike: out she go!

We signin’ contract; we get raise
After striking twenty days.
Butcher comes, and ringing bell,
He raises prices: what the hell!

Union man! Union man!
He must have full dinner can!
AFL-CIO
Callin’ strike: out she go!

I’m drinkin’ too much beer last night;
To go to work I don’t feel right.
In my can, some bread and meat;
I’m too dam’ sick; I cannot eat.

Union man! Union man!
He must have full dinner can!
AFL-CIO
Callin’ strike: out she go!

I fire shot at 10 o’clock;
Tumble brushes full of rock;
Timber breakin’ o’er my head;
Jeepers cripes! I think I’m dead!

Union man! Union man!
He must have full dinner can!
AFL-CIO
Callin’ strike: out she go!
