We Do The Work

from Rise As One

Jon used to run a PBS show in San Francisco that was all about workers and working class concerns. This was the theme song he wrote for the show.

We plant the food, we drive the cab
We load the ship, we run the lab
We build the bridges, we fly the plane
We do the work, this is our day

We do the work, we do the work
We do the work, this is our day

We type the page, we clean the streets
We sew the clothes, we change the sheets
We sell the goods, we lay the stone
We do the work, this is our home

We do the work, we do the work
We do the work, this is our home

We dig the ditch, we serve the meal
We give the care, we mold the steel
We teach the kids, we lend a hand
We do the work, this is our land

We do the work, we do the work
We do the work, this is our land
