All around the world
The signs are in the air
That the working guy
and the working gal
Will work for what is fair.

You know why we fight
Our budget's way too tight
And in this new age
A real living wage
Is everybody’s right.

Our job is never done
We've only just begun
We'll sing this song
The whole day long
Until we know we've won!

Look into our eyes
You should not be surprised
That the working guy
and the working gal
Have come to unionize.
