说明〕小册子中提到这首歌,网上查了下,找到歌词,顺便译了。可惜没找到能听能下载的歌曲。创作年代也不明。


工会克星
(The Union Buster)

作者:保罗•麦肯纳(Paul McKenna)
曲调:《哦,苏珊娜》(Oh, Susanna)


现在我来介绍我自己——我可不能透露姓名。
我是资方的顾问,论破坏工会我最高明。
我擅长搞欺诈,我是骗子的祖师爷,
从干活的乡亲们嘴里,我把面包偷窃。

※ 我是工会的克星,老板们信赖的助手。
  我帮他们让员工又要拼命跑,又要少吃草。

在过去年代,我们靠的是持枪的暴徒。
现在我们还是唱老调,但改成花言巧语。
让乡亲斗乡亲,散布仇恨、流言和恐慌,
把奋起组织的工人们的希望消磨光。

没什么手段没使过,没什么把戏不会玩。
我恐吓,我渗透,我压服,搞离间。
我用官司和拖延,把工会耗到惨,
我自己嘛,一天少说千把块进账。

小时候,我欺负那些才我一半个头的娃。
拔掉昆虫蜘蛛的腿,把蝴蝶的翅膀卸下。
现在长大成人了,我一点儿没变样,
继续踩在卑微低下的受压迫者背上。

杰克•伦敦讲了个故事——上帝在实验室工作,
用一些可恨的物质,造出我的好朋友——工贼。
哎,他把研究生学位授予了其中一些混帐,
他就是这样把我造,还给我穿上三件套西装。

............... D ................................................................... A7
Well now let me introduce myself - I can't disclose my name.
.......... D ........................................................ A7 ..... D
I'm a management consultant, union-busting is my game.
............................................................................ A7
I'm a master of the con job, I'm an expert at the hoax,
............ D ......................................................... A7 ...................... D
And I make my living stealing bread from the mouths of working folks.
........ G ........................ D .................. A7
I'm a union-buster, the bosses' trusty aide.
.... D ............................................. A7 ..................... D
I help keep their employees overworked and underpaid.

In the old days we used gun thugs, we used ginks and finks and goons.
Nowadays we use fancy words but sing the same old tune.
Pitting folks against each other, spreading hatred, fear and lies,
Cutting down the hopes of workers who rise up to organize.

There's no tactic I won't stoop to, there's no trick I haven't tried.
To intimidate and infiltrate, to conquer and divide.
I'll wear down with litigation and delay,
And all the while I'm raking in a thousand bucks a day.

When I was young, I used to fight with kids one-half my size.
Pull the legs of bugs and spiders and the wings off butterflies.
Now I've grown to be a man, I haven't changed at all,
I'm still stepping on the underdog, the humble and the small.

Jack London tells the story - God was working in his lab,
And from some hateful substance he made my good friend the scab.
Well, he gave some of that awful stuff a graduate degree,
He dressed it in a three-piece suit and that's how he made me.
