A little something to hum on the job

Anthem

Iím proud to human
Iím proud to be alive
We live all around the world
And we live here with pride

We gotta be strong
We gotta be free
Wonít be a slave
To the company

This world is ours
Itís here for us to share
We gotta take it back
From those who think itís theirs

We gotta be strong
We gotta be free
Wonít be a slave
To the company

They put themselves above us
They think weíre fools
Run it like a circus
Makiní all the rules

We gotta be strong
We gotta be free
Wonít be a slave
To the company

If nobody works
Nothing gets done
Leave it to the jerks
And there wonít be none

We gotta be strong
We gotta be free
Wonít be a slave
To the company

This world of ours
Is made by me and you
By puttiní in the hours
You know that itís true

We gotta be strong
We gotta be free
Wonít be a slave
To the company

They export our jobs
Do it without a care
They lie, cheat and rob
And tell us itís fair

We gotta be strong
We gotta be free
Wonít be a slave
To the company

They send us off to war
To defend liberty
Our soldiers travel afar
Spreading tyranny

We gotta be strong
We gotta be free
Wonít be a slave
To the company

They hand you a ballot
They check off your name
Feel like a harlot
Votiní more of the same

We gotta be strong
We gotta be free
Wonít be a slave
To the company


The system really sucks
They got us by the balls
You canít change your luck
Playiní by their rules

We gotta be strong
We gotta be free
Wonít be a slave
To the company

Itís your choice
To save the ones you love
Raise your voice
And push when they shove

We gotta be strong
We gotta be free
Wonít be a slave
To the company

To fix this mess
Hereís how itís gotta be
Do your level best
to turn ĎIí into ĎWeí
