I am the union man…
Don’t call me a hero
Tho’ I was the brother
First, down at Ground Zero

Other members came …
From throughout this great land
To first honor the fallen …
Then gave the helping hand

To make way through the
rubble …
To help forge the way
Our brothers an d sisters
Worked every night …
24 hours … every day

And that was OK However,
You see us now …
Standing out here today
On the line fighting for others …
For a better wage and a better way

We are the union members …
Who where there in September
We’re out there trying to educate …
What it’s like to be a UNION member

So give Jack Laboz a call
(212-431-7500) and tell him today …
To share it with the workers …
It’s the American way!!!
We are not going away.
