lyrics

STRIKE!

We wake up every morning drink a cup and head to town
don’t see our wives again until the sun comes down
The beer is always warm and the pot roast is ice cold
I hope I’m not still working when I’m gray and old

Walk out - we’re gonna walk out
unless we can knock out some out some kind deal

Walk out - We’re gonna walk out
unless we can talk out just the way the we feel!

Have a glass off wine and head to bed at ten
Get up in the morning and we do it all again
Don’t get us wrong sir we appreciate the work
but I'm getting sick and tired of being treated like a jerk

Strike! - We’re gonna strike cause we don’t abide with anything you say
Strike - we’re gonna strike -cause we don’t like what you pay

You’ve all been so great and of course I appreciate the burden of your task
but the funds are all depleted and for you to plead for more is
just too much to ask. It’s just to much to ask

Higher - we’re getting higher
and think that should require a few more francs

So come on Eiffel - don’t stall or stifle
Won’t stop till I’m full so come on let’s dance!

As to the matter of just how high you climb to work There is no debate
for it doesn’t matter if you fall from three flights or five you’ll meet the same grim fate

Strike! - We’re gonna strike cause we don’t abide with anything you say
Strike - we’re gonna strike -cause we don’t like what you pay!

You men all agreed to the terms before we started but let me fix this snag
I Promise 100 francs to everyman that stays with me until we hoist the flag
until we fly our flag.

Eiffel, you got yourself a deal!
