Street Dogs - “There is Power in a Union”

"There is power in a democracy, power in the land

Power in the hands of a worker!
But it all amounts to nothing if together we don’t stand,
There is a power in a Union!

Now the lessons of the past were all learned with workers’ blood
The mistakes of the bosses we must pay for
From the cities to the farmlands in the trenches full of mud
Cuz war has always been the bosses’ way sir

The Union forever, defending our rights!
Let’s fight the Right Wing, all workers unite
With our brothers and our sisters from many far off lands
There is power in a Union!

Now I long for the time that they realize
Brutality and unjust laws cannot defeat us
But who’ll defend the workers who cannot organize
When the GOP send their attorneys out to cheat us?

Money speaks for money, the Devil for his own
Who’ll come speak for the skin and the bone?
What a comfort to widow, a light for the child
There is power in a Union!

The Union forever, defending our rights
Let’s fight the right-wing, all workers unite
With our brothers and our sisters from many far off lands
There is power in a Union!

With social justice and equality
For every man and woman who wants it
There is power in a Union!”
