Alan Rosenberg Union Song

Alan Rosenberg Union Song

“We don’t care about the future, we only care about us. and if you don’t earn what I think I can earn,  I will throw you underneath a bus. 

I’m not a singer, I’m not a guitar player, I’m not even a songwriter. Although my cousin’s a rock and roll star: Steely Dan. Donald Fagan, my first cousin.
 
“We don’t care about the future, we only care about us.
and if you don’t earn what I think I can earn, 
I will throw you underneath a bus. 
 
I sure do love my Union, it gave me my pension and my health, 
but don’t expect me to stand up for nobody
till I’ve had a chance to accumulate some wealth.
 
I’ll stand up strong so that we might be weak
I insist you take that deal without even a tweak! (You bastards)
 
Al and Doug and Doug Allen?, they stand up way too hard.
If they keep fighting for my compensation, 
I will bury them right in my own backyard.
 
Just tell my bosses that I’ll take what they’re willing to give, 
‘cause I’m just so grateful that they even let me live!
 
I don’t care about nobody, I only care about me. 
Lay down your weapons and stop all that nasty fighting,
don’t you know you should be glad to work for free!
 
I’ll stand up strong so that we might be weak, 
I demand you take that deal without even a tweak.
Tell old CBS that I’ll take what they’re willing to give,
cause I’m just so grateful that they even let us live!
 
I don’t care about nobody.
No, I only care about me.
Lay down your weapons and stop all that nasty fighting,
don’t you know you should be glad to work, 
shouldn’t even be mad to work, 
sometimes you should prefer to work for free!
 
Sometimes as long as it ain’t me!
 
Meanwhile, come see me on TV!
