HALLELUJAH, I'M A BUM!

Tune: Revive Us Again
Written by: Harry "Haywire Mac" McClintock
Adapted by Spokane IWW Winter of 1908 For Use on Song Card of That Year)

LYRICS (as written by Haywire Mac, not the ones performed here by Utah):
O, why don't you work Like other men do?
How in hell can I work
When there's no work to do?

(Chorus)
Hallelujah, I'm a bum!
Hallelujah, bum again!
Hallelujah, give us a handout
To revive us again.

O, why don't you save
All the money you earn?
If I did not eat
I'd have money to burn.
(Chorus)

O, I like my boss -
He's a good friend of mine;
That's why I'm starving
Out in the breadline.
(Chorus)

I can't buy a job
For I ain't got the dough,
So I ride in a box-car
For I'm a hobo.
(Chorus)

Whenever I get
All the money I earn
The boss will be broke
And to work he must turn.
(Chorus)
