Ballad of the Gruesome Twosome
A labor campaign ditty circulated by the Reuther faction, to the tune of an old ballad, "Reuben and Rachel," that suggested Frankensteen and Addes were taking orders from Joseph Stalin.

Who are the boys who take their orders



Who are the boys who take their orders
Straight from the office of Joe Sta-leen?
No one else but the gruesome twosome,
George F. Addes and Frankensteen.

Who are the boys who fight for piecework,
To make the worker a machine?
No one else but the gruesome twosome,
George F. Addes and Frankensteen.

The Auto Workers have their sideshow
One is fat and one is lean.
No one else but the gruesome twosome,
George F. Addes and Frankensteen.
