Lyrics: Tom Glazer

Year: 1946

Country: USA


If the workers are broke,
Then the butcher is broke,
And tbe baker is broke,
And the banker is broke.
And the broker is broke,
And that ain't no joke,
No, it ain't a joke,
When the country is broke.

If the workers make money,
The butcher makes money,
The baker makes money,
The banker makes money,
The broker makes money,
The skies are all sunny,
If workers make money,
The country's okay.

If the workers are broke,
Then the butcher is broke,
And tbe baker is broke,
And the banker is broke.
And the broker is broke,
And that ain't no joke,
No, it ain't a joke,
When the country is broke.
