We’re on the side of workers

Coventry TUSC protesting against council cuts

 

Vote TUSC – video showing there is an alternative to cuts.

 

To the tune of “Blue is the colour” (should be “Red is the colour”, in the case of TUSC).

 

TUSC is on the side of workers

We will fight your cause,

Join you on the picket line,

Campaign to save your job.

 

TUSC is on the side of workers

If you’re bullied by the boss,

On zero-hour contracts

Or confused and at a loss.

 

TUSC is on the side of workers

We will stand against the tide.

The main parties offer nothing

But we are on your side.

 

TUSC is on the side of workers

You won’t find us on the news,

‘Cos the media are scared of us

Don’t want to hear our views.

 

TUSC is on the side of workers

That includes the unemployed.

Share out the hours in the week,

Industry has been destroyed.

 

TUSC is on the side of workers

Join us in our campaign.

Renationalise the railways,

Stop cuts which cause us pain.

 

TUSC is on the side of workers

We will save the NHS.

From private, profiteering vultures

Who don’t care about illness.

 

TUSC is on the side of workers

New Labour shall be no more

We need a left alternative

To even up the score.

 

TUSC is on the side of workers

We won’t give up the fight.

We can organise and win back

What should be ours by right.
