Músicos #2: Frank Zappa (1940-1993)



Stick Together (The Man From Utopia)

This is a song about the union, friends
How they fucked you over and the way they bends
The rules to suit a special few
And you gets pooched every time they do

You know we gotta stick together
You know we gotta stick together
You know we gotta stick together
You know we gotta stick together

Once upon a time the idea was good
If only they’d a done what they said they would
It ain’t no better, they’s makin’ it worse
The labor movement’s got the Mafia curse

You know we gotta stick together
You know we gotta stick together
You know we gotta stick together
You know we gotta stick together

Don’t be no fool, don’t be no dope
Common sense is your only hope
When the union tells you it’s time to strike
Tell the motherfucker to take a hike

You know we gotta stick together
You know we gotta stick together
You know we gotta stick together
You know we gotta stick together
