lyrics

Who made your Silver Cufflinks?
Who rolled your big cigar?
Who wired up your smatrphone?
who built your shiny car?
Who makes your lifestyle possible?
Who deserves the credit?
Fuck yeah, the working class
And don't you dare forget it

Who mends your fighting trousers?
Who shines your wingtip shoes?
Who serves your Russian Caviar
And thousand dollar booze?
Who tends to all your comforts, tell me
Who deserves the credit?
Fuck yeah, the working class
And don't you dare forget it

Who picks your whole bean coffee?
Who brews your fancy beer?
Who blends your pipe tobacco
And who lights your chandelier?
Whose labor serves your lush life,
Who deserves the credit?
Fuck yeah, the working class
And don't you dare forget it

Who operates the railroads?
Who drives the taxi cabs?
Who fixes up the potholes
and who lays the pavement slabs?
Who gets you from point A to B?
Who deserves the credit?
Fuck yeah, the working class
And don't you dare forget it

Who mines the earth for minerals?
Who cuts the forest trees?
Who plows the harvest fields
and toils in the factories?
Who keeps this country running, tell me
Who deserves the credit?
Fuck yeah, the working class
And don't you dare forget it

Who's waiting for the trickle down
That never seems to come?
Who tries to stand up for their rights
And gets told to keep mum?
Who'll sing this song from dusk 'til dawn
Until you finally get it?
Fuck yeah, the working class
And don't you dare forget it
Damn right, the working class
And don't you dare forget it!

about

Painless Parker Brooklyn, New York

Born under a barstool and raised by a pack of wild koalas, Painless Parker plays a mixed bag of country laments, sea shanties, murder ballads and classic rockers, filtered through a grimy, whiskey-stained punk lens. He's fluent in two languages, and can cuss in at least seventeen. He enjoys rabble-rousing, shindigging, booze drinking and merrymaking. ... more
