Democracy is quite busy here in Wisconsin. If you can do so, please post and re-share this song as often as you can. It's available for free in as many spots as I can make it. Me on guitar/vocals; Craig on Harmonica. Words & Music Me; a nod to Woody Guthrie at the end. ON WISCONSIN!




That Ain't Right copyright madtrukKurt Griesemer, 2011 BMI

Went down to the capitol today cause I heard some people say
It was filling up with dangerous Union thugs
Radicals and greedy bastards
Lazy teachers holding placards
Trying to get all the money they could grub.
So I got myself to Madison; it was quite a sight I'll tell you son
People in the streets all wearing red
Shouting slogans and singing songs
Holding hands and walking along
Protesting what the governor had said
See he claims we're in crisis and we can't afford to wait
It's time for you workers to sacrifice
In the meantime don't you worry
The government's in a hurry
To sell itself to Koch at any price.

Chorus

Well it's not fair
And it ain't right
How can you go to sleep at night
Doin' what your doin
Just to stick it to the unions
My brothers and my sisters; stand and fight

--

I keep hearing about the out of towners comin' here and beatin down on
The people on your side to keep um quiet
But it's the people on your side sayin' the ammo should be live!
Why the heck are you tryin' to start a riot
There's mom's and dad's and sons and daughters
Sisters, brothers mothers and fathers
And the best of them are staying overnight
But not one of them has broke the law
But I heard you get pwned on that phone call
Beating on your people just ain't right.

--

And now your on the phone tryin' to lure the 14 home
You would teach those democrats a little lesson
While you pretend to listen all your buddies (Mostly Fitz's)
Would pass the bill in a barely legal session

--

Well there's no easy way out of this cause people here are mighty pissed
But it's not like your leaving us any choice
We're not here for you to walk all over
Recall hell we want a do over
We the people singing with one voice!

--

Chorus

--

Oh, you can't scare me, I'm sticking to the union,
I'm sticking to the union, I'm sticking to the union.
Oh, you can't scare me, I'm sticking to the union,
I'm sticking to the union 'til the day I die.
