Today's anti-government protests - Thessaloniki, Greece

Which Side Are You on?

 

"This government had an idea

And parliament made it law

It seems like it's illegal

To fight for the union any more

 

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

 

We set out to join the picket line

For together we cannot fail

We got stopped by police at the county line

They said, "Go home boys or you're going to jail"

 

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

 

It's hard to explain to a crying child

Why her Daddy can't go back

So the family suffer

But it hurts me more

To hear a scab say Sod you, Jack

 

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

Which side are you on, boys

Which side are you on?

 

I'm bound to follow my conscience

And do whatever I can

But it'll take much more than the union law

To knock the fight out of a working man

 

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?"
