Lyrics: Joe Glazer.
Tune: “My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean.”


’Way back in the days of depression.
I didn’t have nuthin’ to eat,
But that didn’t bother me, Mister,
I was fed from my head to my feet with

Soup, soup,
They gave me a bowl of soup;
Soup, soup,
They gave me a bowl of soup.

One day the depression was over,
I almost was back on my feet,
But quickly there came a recession,
So once more I started to eat

Soup, soup,
They gave me a bowl of soup;
Soup, soup,
They gave me a bowl of soup.

We’re striking this mill for a living,
And one thing on which you can bet
Is that if we don’t stick together
There’s only one thing we will get:

Soup, soup,
They’ll give you a bowl of soup;
Soup, soup,
They’ll give you a bowl of soup.
