Nonviolence is the answer to the
crucial political and moral questions of
our time; the need for [human]kind to
overcome oppression and violence without
resorting to oppression and violence.
[Human]kind must evolve for all human
conflict a method which rejects revenge,
aggression, and retaliation. The foundation
of such a method is love.

-1Rouse The Spirit


(Tune: Deck The Halls)
Rouse the spirit of La Folly
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Tis the season to be jolly
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Don we now blue fist apparel
Fa la la, la la la, la la la
As we sing this protest carol
Fa la la la la, la la la la
With Robin Vos and Scott Fitzgerald
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Liberties are so imperiled
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Follow me, no time for leisure
Fa la la la la, la la la la
While I fight for rights I treasure
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Fast away the bad year passes
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Hail the new gov, lads and lasses
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Now we celebrate the season
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Replacing fear with love and reason
Fa la la la la, la la la la

-2Holly Jolly Noon Hour


(Tune: Holly Jolly Christmas)
Have a holly jolly Noon hour
Its the best time of the day
Walker isnt out of here
So I guess were gonna stay
Have a holly jolly Noon hour
Stay and battle for your rights
Dont run off to Canada
Though you like their Northern Lights
Hoo-ray the Guv wont go
To Washington D.C.
His 70-day presidential run
Feels like our victory!
Have a holly jolly Noon Hour
And in case you didnt hear
Unless Walkers out
You should have no doubt
Well be back this time next year!

-3Walker The Heartless


Govnor
(Tune: Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer)
Scotty, the heartless Govnor
Used to take away our rights
And if you ever saw him
Youd have raised your fist to fight

All of the other people


Used to join the sing-along
They didnt want Scott Walker
To stick around and do more wrong
Then one cold Wisconsin day
People came to say
"Walker, with your heartless laws
Leave our house and shut the door"
Folks will carol at the Noon hour
Til they can shout out with glee
"Walker, you were once a nightmare
But now youre toast and history"

-4Hark! The Plutocrats


Will Whine
(Tune: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing)
Hark! The plutocrats will whine
If they have to pay a dime!
Scrooge is now their Christmas god
While their workers toil and plod!
Make their stuff far overseas
Let Americans starve and freeze!
Love their country, they do not!
We must fight against their plot!
Hark! The plutocrats will whine
If they have to pay a dime!
Hark! The working poor unite!
Show us all how we must fight!
Fast food workers, home care, too
Value in all work we do!
Those who make the stores ka-ching
They are humans, not just things!
One big union for all work!
Organize against the jerks!
Hark! The working poor unite!
Show us all how we must fight!
Peace on Earth, good will to all
Is our creed, our plea, our call!
Solidarity will win
Over the root of all our sin!
Life is more than hoarding gold
Its a truth that must be told!
Christmas is not just a sale
The Charlie Brown special told the tale!
Peace on Earth, good will to all
Is our creed, our plea, our call!

-5Erwins Cops Are


Coming To Town
(Tune: Santa Claus Is Coming To Town)
Youd better watch out
Dont hold a sign
Better not shout
You might get a fine
Erwins cops are coming to town
He started a list
Of just nine or ten
Free speech offenders
Who came back again
Eriwins cops will come to your house
He thinks you need a permit
For banners, signs and songs
In our Capitol Rotunda?
Constitution says hes wrong!
Youd better not sing
Youd better not sway
Put down the chalk
Or wash it away
Erwins cops will find you at work
Citations by the hundreds
The LRAD did attack
They gave us pain compliance
Extra pain if you are Black
So youd better watch out
If you dare to dissent
Theyll appeal till the peoples
Moneys all spent
Erwins guards arent shutting us down

-6Oh Billionaires
(Tune: O Tannenbaum)
Oh billionaires, oh 1 percent
Its time to pay your taxes
You live like kings, you kill for bling
We wont support your habits
We will boycott all your stores
Banks and drugs, and all your wars
Oh billionaires, oh 1 percent
Its time to pay your taxes!
Oh ruling class, oh 1 percent
Why dont you pay your taxes?
You scheme and play, and rob each day
You prey upon the masses
We will stop you every day
We wont send a cent your way
Oh ruling class, oh 1 percent
Why dont you pay your taxes?
Oh patriarchs, oh plutocrats
Its time you paid your dues
You smile and lie, you occupy
The minds of people, too
We will boycott all your news
And all your mass media, too
Oh patriarchs, oh plutocrats
Its time you paid your dues!
Oh billionaires, oh 1 percent
Why dont you pay your taxes?
Get out of town, we wont back down
Well occupy your assets
We wont bomb your homes and lands
Like you do to fund your scams
Oh billionaires, oh 1 percent
We just demand your taxes!

-7Carbon Bells
(Tune: Jingle Bells)
Dashing through the snow
In a great big S.U.V.
Brown are hills we know
Must drive to the U.P.
Methods quite extreme
Bring fossil fuels to me
Consume like no tomorrow
Hold out hope for Planet B!
Jingle bells, ocean swells
Californias dry
These effects of climate change
Oil salesmen deny! [REPEAT]
Easy oil is gone
Clean coal is a fake
Tar sands and fracked oil
Piped oer seas and lakes
Blast the mountaintops
Wisconsin has sand
Need some props for fracking?
You can haul off our farm land!
Jingle bells, poisoned wells
Frac sand crystals fly!
Earthquakes shake beneath the shale
While corporate science lies [REPEAT]
Windmills dont pollute
No one owns the sun
Power that renews
Could be produced by everyone!
Conservation would
Have saved us money too
Until the rates were shifted
Making waste the new virtue!
Jingle Bells, climate Hells
Not that far away
Let us have our wind and rail
And let our solar pay! [REPEAT]

-8Walker Quit
By Christmas
(Tune: Ill Be Home For Christmas)
Walker quit by Christmas
His campaigns history
No more bus, not one cauc-us
Not even one primry

Was it cause he punted


On questions overseas?
Or cause hed turn citizens
Into deportees?
Would the wall he wanted
Have helped keep out the snow?
Walker quit by Halloween
So now well never know
Walker quit by Christmas
His campaigns history
No more bus, not one cauc-us
Not even one primry
(slowly) Not even one primry!

-9Up On The Balcony


(Tune: Up On The House Top)
Up on the balcony coppers pause
Out through the LRAD Erwin calls
Down to the citizens tuneful noise
Disperse at once, I do not enjoy
CHORUS:
Ho Ho Ho! We didn't go!
Ho Ho Ho! We didn't go!
Down from the balcony, quick quick quick
Into the basement, click click click
First comes the strike team of little Fell
Don't these handcuffs fit you well?
Give him a ticket for no permit
Change it later when we learn our skit
CHORUS
Next for the strike team is gentle Will
Fought for our rights and fighting still
Handcuffed for singing, now that's just whack
Dropped on the stairs right on his back
CHORUS
During the summer the LRAD rang
Three hundred arrests, that's just insane
A word to the wise and Erwin, too
We're here to stay, and we'll outlast you
CHORUS
Two years passed since the mass arrests
Dane County courts cleaned up the mess
Thanks be to J.S.O. and Crute
Next up a class action lawsuit
CHORUS

-10Womens Woe
(Tune: Let It Snow)
Well the legislature is frightful
If your pregnancys not delightful
They closed all the clinics, so
Ignore Roe, right-wing dough, womens woe
Well they dont show a sign of stopping
And the lies they tell are whopping
Got to keep ladies prospects low
Ignore Roe, right-wing dough womens woe
If a woman finds out too late
That her fetus health is unsound
Or a girl was knocked up by rape
They prescribe ultrasound!
So the clinic workers are dying
While guilt the rights denying
They still rant on fake video
Ignore Roe, right-wing dough, womens woe
If the Planned Parenthood got closed
And your cancer screenings no more
As the illness turns out your lights
At least you know youre not a whore!
Well the lawmakers love a fetus
Once born, they decline to feed us
As misogyny runs the show
Ignore Roe, right-wing dough, womens woe.

-11O Come, All Ye Workers


(Tune: O Come, All Ye Faithful)
O come all ye workers
Ninety-nine percenters
O come ye, o come ye who work for your wage!
Come and behold how
Bosses try to squeeze you!
CHORUS:
O come, let us all organize
O come, let us all organize
O come, let us all organize
Take whats ours!
Oh, well, say the bosses
"You need to work harder!
Just take your bootstraps and give them a pull!"
But, were producing
More and more than ever!
CHORUS
They say its better
They call this "recovery"?!
All of the profits go to you know who!
Their banks got bailed out
Workers just got sold out!
CHORUS

-12Go, Organize
Your Work Place
(Tune: Go, Tell It On The Mountain)
CHORUS:
Go organize your workplace
Or school or home or everywhere
Go organize your workplace
The union makes us strong
When I was a student
I took out student loans
But even working two jobs
I cant pay what I owe
CHORUS
Four years Ive worked at Starbucks
And slaved for every cent
Now, if I made fifteen bucks
Then I could pay my rent
CHORUS
There are some needs that I shed
My kids I cant refuse
But hot dogs or some white bread
I should not have to choose!
CHORUS

They say that Im just lazy


Well, they should work this hard!
What they say is just crazy
So heres my union card!
CHORUS
Now I am retired
I stand up and I sing
No threat of being fired
For doing the right thing
CHORUS

-13Have A Holly, Jolly


Handgun
(Tune: Have A Holly, Jolly Christmas)
Have a holly, jolly handgun
To conceal throughout the year
Dont be slow, to let it show
In a bar when you drink beer

Have a holly, jolly handgun


And when you walk down the street
Dont drop your gun, shoot yourself
Or anyone you meet
Oh ho
The knives we throw
The good guys with a gun
Somebody runs from you
Scare them til theyre safe!
Have a holly, jolly handgun
You can cause a lot of fear
Oh by golly
Have a holly
Jolly handgun
This year!

14Walker Blunderland II
-

(Tune: Walking In A Winter Wonderland)


Cowbells ring, are you listening?
In the Square, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, were active tonight
Wintering in a Walker Blunderland
Every day we have manners
Every day we wave banners
Well sing out these songs, all winter long
Wintering in a Walker Blunderland
In the Rotunda, we wont see Dave Erwin
Hes the head of Walkers Palace Guard
We get lots of mail from Mr. Erwin
But for him to show his face is mighty hard
Later on, well conspire
As we dream, by the fire
To face unafraid, the plans that theyve made
Wintering in a Walker Blunderland
Well leave our guitars and fiddles
In their cases
And well sing a cappella for an hour
Theyll see smiles all upon our faces
And know that through our singing
We have power
When it snows, aint it thrilling?
Though your nose gets a chilling
Well sing from the floor
Like weve done before
Wintering in a Walker Blunderland
Wintering in a Walker Blunderland
Winter, Walker, Winter Blunderland

-15Here Comes Santa Koch


(Tune: Here Comes Santa Claus)
Here comes Santa Koch, here comes Santa Koch
Right down ALEC Claus Lane
Walker and Christie and all their reindeer
Pullin on the reins
Coffers ringin, children starvin
The rich are merry, all right!
So hang your stockings and say your prayers
Cause Santa Koch comes tonight!
Here comes Walmart, here comes Walmart
Right down "Free Trade" Lane
Theyve got stores chock full with toys
For boys and girls again
All the toys are made in China
Store workers fightin for rights
Wage slavery across the world
Cause Walmart comes tonight
Here comes Ruling Class, here comes Ruling Class
Right down Capitalist Lane
They will preach their "hard work" line
Again and again and again!
They would lash us into serfdom
Always enhancing their might!
Nothing is enough for them
As Ruling Class comes tonight!

Here comes Working Class


Here comes Working Class
Right down Organize Lane
Well come around when calls ring out
"Its striking time again!"
Dignity will come to all
If we just fight for our rights
So let us all unite as one
Cause Working Class fights tonight!
So let us all unite as one
Cause Working Class fights tonight!

-16Deck The Halls With


Pink Citations
(Tune: Deck The Halls)
Deck the halls with pink citations
Fa la la la la, and cite, cite, cite!
Hear Chief Erwins fabrications!
Fa la la la la, and cite, cite, cite!

Don we now our warm apparel


Fa la la la la la, cite, cite, cite!
While we sing our freedom carol
Fa la la la la, and cite, cite, cite!
See the Constitution here now
Fa la la la la, and cite, cite, cite!
Our state valued freedom, and how!
Fa la la la la, and cite, cite, cite!
Now its time to drop the cases!
Fa la la la la la, cite, cite, cite!
Put an end to these disgraces!
Fa la la la la, and cite, cite, cite!
Fast away the old year passes
Fa la la la la, and cite, cite, cite!
New terms coming, lads and lasses!
Fa la la la la, and cite, cite, cite!
Sing we fearless, in all weather
Fa la la la la la, cite, cite, cite!
We will face their threats together!
Fa la la la la, and cite, cite, cite!

-17God Bless You


Very Wealthy Men
(Tune: God Rest You Merry Gentlemen)
God bless you very wealthy men
Good news I have to tell
The markets up, youre making more
Each time you buy and sell
With layoffs more, your profits soar
Youre living rather well
O tidings of capital gains, capital gains
O tidings of capital gains!
God bless you very wealthy men
You never have to see
The people all around you
Who must live in misery
You keep the poor far from your door
You know no poverty
O tidings of capital gains, capital gains
O tidings of capital gains!

God bless you very wealthy men


Whatever comes to pass
You have no fear that you will be
Kicked out upon your ass
We have a feeling that your ceiling
Is not made of glass
O tidings of capital gains, capital gains
O tidings of capital gains!
God bless you very wealthy men
You do repeat this song
You owe success to your hard work
No one helped you along
Youve raised yourself to the top shelf
Your bootstraps must be strong
O tidings of capital gains, capital gains
O tidings of capital gains!
God bless you poor and working folks
Its time to take a stand
For decent wages, health, and pensions
Are our just demands
Its time to fight, we must unite!
Now, wont you lend a hand?
O tidings of a world to be gained, a world to be gained
O tidings of a world to be gained!

-18Lets Stand As One


(Tune: O Tannenbaum)
Lets stand as one, the fights not won
To change this state forever
We sing in peace, let gridlock cease
Well oust the Gov together
For health and schools
Clean streams and skies
Less greed in how we split the pie
Lets stand as one, the fights not won
To change our state together
Wisconsin folks, come stand as one
Let our great state shine bright as sun
Reclaim a clean, Wisconsin now
Keep up the fight. We know just how!
Protect the weak, the young and old
Dont let Scott Walker harm our fold!
The man has done, only harmful deeds
Once Walkers gone: Democracy!
Lets stand as one, the fights not won
To change this state forever
We sing in peace, let gridlock cease
Well oust the Gov together

-19Please Hear, You


Right-Wing Lawmakers
(Tune: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen)
Please hear, you right-wing lawmakers
Youve filled us with dismay
At all the things youve done to us
Since last years holidays
You dont listen to constituents
Bribery shows the way
(softer)
With no tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
With no tidings of comfort and joy.
Please look, you right-wing lawmakers
Why is it you cant see?
Enacting bills without support
Is not democracy
We want all voices to be heard
Because speech should be free
(staccato)
And not bought by the corpratocracy
Cant you see?
They depri-ive us of comfort and joy.
Good people help return our state
To honest policies
Ignore those awful TV ads
Financed in secrecy
Elect folks who love public schools
And care for you and me
(joyfully)
Then well all have more comfort and joy!
Then well all have more comfort and joy!

-20Wont You March


In Our Parade?
(Tune: Good King Wenceslas)
Special interests rule the land
One single voice is feeble
But together, hand in hand
Power to the people!

CHORUS:
Wont you march in our parade?
Join the celebration!
Sing for peace with songs that say
Justice in our nation!
Daily songs are good for health
Rousing up our spirit
We want the rich to share the wealth
Respect all workers' merit!
CHORUS
Come add your voice, sing every day
There's room in our big circle
We polka, sway, sings songs that say
Together we are hopeful!
CHORUS

-21Do You Know


What I Know?
(Tune: Do You Hear What I Hear?)
Said Mike Huebsch to-oo Chief Erwin
"Do you see what I see? (what I see?)
Way down on the Rotunda floor
Do you see what I see? (what I see?)
A crowd, a crowd, singing every noon
With a sign as bold as can be
With a sign as bold as can be"
Said Chief Erwin to the Palace Guard
"Do you hear what I hear? (what I hear?)
Singing through the Capitol every day
Do you hear what I hear? (what I hear?)
A song, a song echoing through the halls
With a voice as bold as can be
With a voice as bold as can be
Said the Palace Guard to the protester
"Do you know what I know? (what I know?)
In the Capitol singing protest songs
Do you know what I know? (what I know?)
Youll be arrested if you do not leave
We will use, hand cuffs and zip ties
We will use, hand cuffs and zip ties"
Said the protester to media everywhere
"Listen to what I say! (what I say!)
First Amendment rights, they dont care
Listen to what I say! (what I say!)
Bob LaFollette, helped designed our ring
So we could peacefully assemble and sing
So we could peacefully assemble and sing

-22Fair Trade Dreidel


(Tune: I Have A Little Dreidel)
Im sick of spending money
On presents no one needs
Id rather put my dollars
Toward good works and good deeds
CHORUS:
Oh, fair trade, fair trade, fair trade
A better kind of gift
Oh, fair trade, fair trade, fair trade
Gives everyone a lift!
Commercial toys and tchotchkes
Are not worth what we spend
But when we buy from crafters
We all win in the end!
CHORUS
So look for fair trade items
For every holiday
Your family will love em
And proudly you can say
CHORUS

-23Wisconsin, O Wisconsin
(Tune: Hanukkah, O Hanukkah)
Wisconsin o Wisconsin, a pyre flame is rising
Your rights are on fire, and theres no compromising
Ron Johnson and Grothman, now stand for your state
Walker and Priebus, its government by snake!
And while we were voting
Their pockets were greased once again
A million in that one, a million in this
They mock what was once progressive
A million in that one, a million in this
They mock what was once progressive
"Dear Mr. Gimbel, you lit up our mailbox
We're just a bit busy, with lutefisk and gravlax
Dorothy is hoppin', to work with Rabbi Shmotkin
Menorah, fuse and all thereof
We wish you a merry Molotov

"And while you are swaying


Our devious minds make a din
Right to Work and for less,
Pennsylvania Ave. address
Your mazel tov, I'm blowin' off.
Right to Work and for less,
Pennsylvania Ave. address
No disputin, I'm Scott Rasputin."
Wisconsin, O Wisconsin, a quiet rotunda
Thats what the Ba-rons, demand for their plund-AH
Gather in the circle, and in a big voice,
Sing Give Light!, til again we rejoice
And while we are swaying
That vision is burning bright
Wisconsin will fight,
For whats good and whats right
FOR OUR SONG IN THE CAPITOL SQUARE!
WISCONSIN WILL FIGHT
FOR WHATS GOOD AND WHATS RIGHT
FOR OUR SONG UNDER FIGHTING BOBS
GLARE!

-24God Blessed You


With Your Genitals
(Tune: God Bless Ye Merry Gentlemen)
God blessed you with your genitals
Republicans will say
They claim that public re-estrooms
Are not for trans or gays
They base their rules on unfound fears
And hope youll go away
Theyll decide whether youre a girl or boy
Girl or boy
Theyll deci-ide whether youre a girl or boy
From Nass and Kremer came a bill
To regulate the loo
Lift up your dress, display your mess
So we know who is who
Youll have to wait until the state
Determines if youre you
Theyll decide whether youre a girl or boy
Girl or boy
Theyll deci-ide whether youre a girl or boy
"Now fear us," said Republicans
"Well teach you wrong from right
Well send you to a separate room
Until you see the light
Empowering those who must impose
Their prejudice through might
Well decide whether youre a girl or boy
Girl or boy
Well deci-ide whether youre a girl or boy

REST IN POWER

-26A Campaign Of Failure


(Tune: Away In A Manger)
With stories quite folksy
'Bout shopping at Kohl's
The sleepy-eyed bald guy
Rose high in the polls
Then over in Iowa
The voters awoke
The drip from Wisconsin
Became a big joke
He said he supported
Canadian walls
That beating up grannies
Would show he had balls
He flip-flopped on birthright
Then flip-flopped once more
The voters and media
Couldn't keep score
His campaign for President
Had barely begun
He needed more money
And saw there was none
The sleepy-eyed bald guy
Shut down his campaign
The drip from Wisconsin
A drop-out again*

*"again" rhymes with "campaign"


like a Canadian would say it

-27It Came Upon


A Midnight Vote
(Tune: Away In A Manger)
It came upon a midnight vote
The ending of our John Doe
From pirates desperate to stay afloat
And fill their pockets with gold!
"Piss on the statutes, we dont care
Corruption is our precious King!"
The courts in partisan stillness lie
With no indictments to bring
Still to the Capitol dome they come
With songbooks, and banners unfurled
And every weekday the music floats
Above their criminal world
Across the prairies and lovely plains
Through every Capitol wing
Where greed, corruption, and graft now reign
Devoted citizens sing
Now with these votes for pain and strife
Wisconsin hath stumbled along
Beneath the citizen-strain have rolled
Almost six years of wrong
One man, at war with good, hears not
The love song which they bring
Now cease these crimes, you man of strife
And hear the people sing
For lo, his term is hastening on
As goodness and decency swarm
And, thanks to ever-circling throngs
Shall come progressive reform
When Bob LaFollettes idea, reborn
Its timeless splendors fling
And all Wisconsin will sing the song
Which now the protesters sing

-28Solidarity Forever
When the Unions inspiration
Through the workers blood shall run
There can be no power greater
Anywhere beneath the sun
Yet what force on earth is weaker
Than the feeble strength of one?
But the Union makes us strong!

CHORUS:
Solidarity Forever
Solidarity Forever
Solidarity Forever
For the Union makes us strong!
They have taken untold trillions
That they never toiled to earn
But without our brain and muscle
Not a single wheel can turn
We can break their haughty power
Gain our freedom when we learn
That the Union makes us strong!
CHORUS
They say our day is over
And they say our time is through
They say you need no Union
If your collar isnt blue
Well, that is just another lie
The boss is telling you
For the Union makes us strong!
CHORUS
They divide us by our color
They divide us by our tongue
They divide us men and women
They divide us old and young
But theyll tremble at our voices
When they hear these verses sung
For the Union makes us strong!

CHORUS (twice)
