Lyrics: John MacRae.
Tune: “Solidarity Forever.”


I must save the proletariat from the tactics of the stools.
The officials, Doyle and Fisher, they have broken all the rules.
And the 40,000 Wobblies are a bunch of gosh darn fools.
But injunctions make us strong.

Second Jesus, Jimmy Rowan,
Second Jesus, Jimmy Rowan,
Second Jesus, Jimmy Rowan,
Injunctions make him strong.

It will cost them all the money, but I do not care for that.
I would rather pay a lawyer than to go and buy a gat.
And I must protect One-Twenty from a bunch of One-Ten cats,
So injunctions make me strong.

Second Jesus, Jimmy Rowan,
Second Jesus, Jimmy Rowan,
Second Jesus, Jimmy Rowan,
Injunctions make him strong.

To me, the whole of Labor ought to burn a special joss.
But for me, this wobbly union would have been a total loss.
And I’m pretty sure His Honor will appoint me as their boss,
While injunctions make me strong.

Second Jesus, Jimmy Rowan,
Second Jesus, Jimmy Rowan,
Second Jesus, Jimmy Rowan,
Injunctions make him strong.
