The Lyrics

This song is going out to the GM workers that got sacked a few weeks ago (at time of writing this). It has more relevance to what happened in Oshawa considering how big an influence that large company had. I am sure the same could be said of other small towns where big companies just throw in the towel. I would encourage you to sing the chorus if you are one of those people.
(Verse 1)
Working from assembly line
Never complain or whine
About an engine part
Designers and en-gin-eers
Quelling (all) your safety fears
They really must be smart

But there’s a new solution that we dread
Cause GM doesn’t want it say what should be said
There’s a chill, cause winter is here
I’d think about the festive Yule
Don’t end up the board room fool
There’s only one way to sort this mess out

And so, we go away
Our bonus not paid, as we walk out that door
We’re filled, with dismay
So they close the plants down
Is what they say

(Verse 2)
Where the heck is our union rep?
With bargaining prep, just to make our case
Blue collars, they don’t want to cry
Waiting on that EI*
This is our working place



(Guitar Solo)(clapping)


And so, we go away
Our bonus not paid, as we walk out that door
We’re filled, with dismay
So they close the plants down
They close the plants down
Is what they say
Now a long vacay**
* EI = Employment Insurance. Something we have in Canada when you are out of work for an extended period of time. ** vacay = vacation.
