When This Strike is Over, song lyrics
Song: When This Strike is Over
Music: to the tune of "The White Cliffs of Dover"
Year: 1964 or before
We will be in clover
When this strike is over,
And life will once again look good -
This song was originally posted on protestsonglyrics.net
The ledger's pages
Will show higher wages,
And better living will begin -
You'll walk with your head erect;
You'll walk with a firmer step;
You'll be a man's man once more
And you'll look at the sky again -
'Cause you'll be in clover
When this strike is over
You are a union member now!
