Raggin

Workin man's, it's a living wage
Workin woman, equal pay
No stinking proverty when you're creaking with age
Ask for these, and all the bosses say is

You're
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Commos to a man
Well if that's being commo
It's commo where we stand

Proud black nation gives a long black shout
Strong black art, Strong black mouth
Two hundred years too long to die
But you spit it all out and the white boss cries

You're
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Commos to a man
Well if that's being commo
It's commo where we stand

Sixty hours to kill on that endless line
Sixty hours cause you're the factory swine
Long long weeks and your brain drags down
Long long years and your backbone's gone

It's time for
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Raggin raggin red red raggin

Sell your guts at the boss' price
He pays cash but you pay for your life
There's women and men standing up to their feet
While the boss pulls a knife and groans through his teeth

You're
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Commos to a man
Well if that's being commo
It's commo where we're
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Raggin raggin red red raggin
Raggin
