Lyrics:
 
Madison, this is to the people in Madison
We believe in you, Madison
So don’t give up the fight in Madison
 
Listen up Scott Walker think you’ve won this battle
but the people are tired of being treated like cattle
a few have been fooled and some have gone along
But the people of Madison are proud and strong
 
Madison, this is for the people in Madison
We believe in you, Madison
So don’t give up the fight in Madison
 
Wisconsin won’t back down, no they’ll stand and be heard
And way out here in Oakland, we’re hearing their words
This ain’t about a budget we know money’s tight
No they won’t stand for your lies but will stand up for their rights
 
Madison, this is for the people in Madison
We believe in you, Madison
So don’t give up the fight in Madison
 
The worker’s for the State they gave up high salaries see
They serve the public well with pride and dignity
They get a modest pension but it didn’t come free
And now you’ve signed away their right to act collectively
Well I say no, that’s not okay with me
The right to bargain is a right that’s fundamentally
About power to the people, that’s where it should be
It’s called justice, it’s called democracy
So here this Scott Walker cause your time is limited
Let us tell you what your big problem really is
It ain’t your naggin’ finger waggin budget deficit
The problem lies with your moral deficit
 
Madison, this is for the people in Madison
We believe in you, Madison
So don’t give up the fight in Madison
