Christmas songs by the Solidarity Singers

Take Back Our Town (Tune: “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”)

You better speak out
No time to be shy
There’s mischief about
Its maker is sly
Walker has invaded our town!

He promises jobs
And pretends to be nice
While putting our Union
Workers on ice
Walker has invaded our town!

He’s primed by ALEC tycoons
Aligned with brothers Koch
His funding comes from billionaires
Who don’t care if we go broke

So
Sing in the Capitol
March in the streets
Document wrongs with
Cameras and tweets
Now’s the time to take back our town!

Majority leaders are
Masters of stealth
Decisions all benefit
Corporate wealth
Walker’s team has tainted our town

They’re skewing the tally
With voter IDs
Changing the districts
However they please
Walker’s team has tainted our town

They caucus when you’re sleeping
They campaign with deceit
You dare not show a protest sign
But their friends are packin’ heat

So
Sing in the Capitol
March in the streets
Document wrongs with
Cameras and tweets
Now’s the time to take back our town!

Sing Along Is Coming To Town (Tune: “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”)

There’s no need to cry, there’s no need to pout
When you can sing and polka and shout
Sing Along is coming to town!

So pick up a book, and sing out the words
Raise up your voice, and make yourself heard
Sing Along is coming to town!

Scott Walker's in his office
His fingers in his ears
He can't block out the singing
And he can't hold back the tears

We got lots of songs, sing some of 'em twice
“If I Had a Hammer” and “It Isn't Nice”
Sing Along is coming to town!

We're using our rights, 'cause Walker is wrong
He breaks out in a sweat, when we break out in
song
Sing Along is coming to town!

We love the First Amendment
And the freedom of all speech
There's not a corner of this building
That our singing doesn't reach

We sing about justice and fairness and
Sing extra loud for the Capitol Police
Sing Along is coming to town!


God Bless You Very Wealthy Men (Tune: “God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen”)
God bless you very wealthy men
Good news I have to tell
The market’s up, you’re making more
Each time you buy and sell
With layoffs more, your profits soar
You’re living rather well
O tidings of capital gains, capital gains
O tidings of capital gains!

God bless you very wealthy men
You never have to see
The people all around you
Who must live in misery
You keep the poor far from your door
You know no poverty
O tidings of capital gains, capital gains
O tidings of capital gains!

God bless you very wealthy men
Whatever comes to pass
You have no fear that you will be
Kicked out upon your ass
We have a feeling that your ceiling
Is not made of glass
O tidings of capital gains, capital gains
O tidings of capital gains!

God bless you very wealthy men
You do repeat this song
You owe success to your hard work
No one helped you along
You’ve raised yourself to the top shelf
Your bootstraps must be strong
O tidings of capital gains, capital gains
O tidings of capital gains!

God bless you poor and working folks
It’s time to take a stand
For decent wages, health, and pensions
Are our just demands
It’s time to fight, we must unite!
Now, won’t you lend a hand?
O tidings of a world to be gained, a world to be
gained
O tidings of a world to be gained!
