O Come Recall Walker: What Democracy Sounds Like

O Come Recall Walker: What Democracy Sounds Like

A melodious, larger-than-usual contingent of Wisconsin's Solidarity Singers gathered as usual in the Capitol Rotunda Friday in defiance of the first day of Scott Walker's excessive new access rules declaring that more than four people have to get a permit. The singers, who have been performing labor and civil rights songs every day for ten months, have added to their repertoire seasonal treats like "Holly Jolly Recall" and "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Freedom" - and there's a 26-tune songbook.

O come, all Wisconsin,
Hold to what we value,
We balance our budgets,
And we work together too,
We value education,
The land, and all our neighbors,
CHORUS
Oh help us recall them, [softly]
Oh help us recall them, [moderately]
Oh help us recall them, [loudly]
And take back our state! [loudest]
O come, all you peaceful,
Sane and irate people,
O come outraged citizens,
Of Wisconsin,
Recall Scott Walker,
Soon as we are able,
CHORUS
We still believe,
In the power of the many,
To combat the selfish,
Greed of just the few,
Laws for the commons,
Not for corporations,
CHORUS

The ever-stirring Solidarity Forever:
