LYRICS

Went down to the capitol today cause I heard some people say

It was filling up with dangerous Union thugs

Radicals and greedy bastards

Lazy teachers holding placards

Trying to get all the money they could grub.
--
So I got myself to Madison; it was quite a sight I'll tell you son

People in the streets all wearing red

Shouting slogans and singing songs

Holding hands and walking along

Protesting what the governor had said

See he claims we're in crisis and we can't afford to wait

It's time for you workers to sacrifice

In the meantime don't you worry

The government's in a hurry

To sell itself to Koch at any price.
--
Chorus

Well it's not fair

And it ain't right

How can you go to sleep at night

Doin' what your doin

Just to stick it to the unions

My brothers and my sisters; stand and fight
--
I keep hearing about the out of towners comin' here and beatin down on

The people on your side to keep um quiet

But it's the people on your side sayin' the ammo should be live!

Why the heck are you tryin' to start a riot
--
There's mom's and dad's and sons and daughters

Sisters, brothers mothers and fathers

And the best of them are staying overnight

But not one of them has broke the law

But I heard you get pwned on that phone call

Beating on your people just ain't right.
--
And now your on the phone tryin' to lure the 14 home

You would teach those democrats a little lesson

While you pretend to listen all your buddies (Mostly Fitz's)

Would pass the bill in a barely legal session

--
Well there's no easy way out of this cause people here are mighty pissed

But it's not like your leaving us any choice

We're not here for you to walk all over

Recall hell we want a do over

We the people singing with one voice!
--
Chorus
--

Oh, you can't scare me, I'm sticking to the union,

I'm sticking to the union, I'm sticking to the union.

Oh, you can't scare me, I'm sticking to the union,

I'm sticking to the union 'til the day I die.
