SABOTAGE

(Air: "Illinois")

There's a word of wond'rous meaning,
Sabotage, Sabotage,
There's a harvest ripe for gleaning,
Sabotage, Sabotage;
Though they gouge us as they will
In the shop or in the mill,
There's a power we have still,
Sabotage, Sabotage,
There's a power we have still,
Sabotage, Sabotage.

It's the lesson they have taught us,
Sabotage, Sabotage;
We will fight them as they fought us,
Sabotage, Sabotage,
There's a rotten hold-up game
"Exploitation" is its name,
We can "sabot" just the same,
Sabotage, Sabotage,
We can "sabot" just the same,
Sabotage, Sabotage.

There's a word that bears repeating,
Sabotage, Sabotage,
There's a force there's no defeating,
Sabotage, Sabotage,
With our backs against the wall,
Listen to our ringing call,—
Are we beaten? not at all,
Sabotage, Sabotage,
Are we beaten? not at all,—
Sabotage, Sabotage.
