Lyrics:

[verse 1]

Well, the workers in my building all are striking,
And it struck me i don’t know quite what to do.
So I asked my friend the super how to best support the fighting,
And he chuckled and he smirked at me, like he’d struck a strike or two…

[chorus]

He said: we’re 30,000 strong across the city,
And there’s strength in numbers, kid — we’ll be just fine.
Oh, the trash’ll pile up, won’t it be pretty?
So just sit tight, and don’t you cross that picket line!

[melodica solo]

[chorus]

He said: we’re 30,000 strong across the city,
And there’s strength in numbers, kid — we’ll be just fine.
Oh, the trash’ll pile up, won’t it be pretty?
So just sit tight, and don’t you cross that picket line!

[verse]

Well, it got me thinkin’ bout my own place of labor…
Low wages, and no benefits, to boot!
And I thought, “Well shit, we really oughta do ourselves a favor.”
So i’m sowin’ seeds of union, and they’re startin’ to take root!

[chorus]

We’re not quite 30,000 strong across the city,
But we’ve got enough to fight; we’ll be just fine!
Oh, the trash’ll pile up, won’t it be pretty?
So just sit tight, and don’t you cross that picket line!

(x3)

[big finish]

So just sit tight, and don’t you cross that picket line!
