Pullitzer and Hearst
Dey think we're nothin'!
Are we nothin'?
NO!

Pullitzer and Hearst
They think they got us,
Do dey got us?
NO!

Even tho' we ain't got hats or badges
We're a union just by sayin' so
And the world will know!

What's it gonna take to stop the wagons?
Are we ready?
YEAH!

What's it gonna take to stop the scabbers?
Can we do it?
YEAH!

We'll do what we gotta do until
We break the will
Of Mighty Bill and Joe

And the world will know!
And the journal, too
Mr. Hearst and Pullitzer
Have we got news for you!
Now the world will hear
What we gotta say
We've been hawkin' headlines
But we're makin' 'em today
And our ranks will grow!
And we'll kick their rear!
And the world will know that we've been here

When the circulation bell starts ringin'
Will we hear it?
NO!

What if The Delanceys come out swingin'
Will we hear it?
NO!

When you got a hundred voices singin'
Who can hear a lousy whistle blow?

And the world will know!
That this ain't no game
That we gotta ton of rotten fruit
And poifect aim
So they gave their word
But it ain't worth beans!
Now they're gonna see
What stop the presses really means
And the day has come
And the time is now
And the fear is gone (And our name is Mudd)
And the strike is on! (And I can't stand blood!)

(And the world will know)
Pullitzer may own the world but he don't own us
(Pullitzer may own the world but he don't own us)

Pullitzer may crack the whip but he won't whip us
(Pullitzer may crack the whip but he won't whip us)

And the world will know!
And the world will learn!
And the world will wonder
How we made the tables turn
And the world will see
That we had to choose
That the things we do today
Will be tomorrow's news

And the old will fall
And the young stand tall
(And the time is now)
And our ranks will grow and grow and grow and grow

And the world will feel the fire
And finally know!
