Dump the Bosses Off Your Back
(John Brill)

 Are you poor, forlorn and hungry?
     Are there lots of things you lack ?
   Is your life made up of misery?
     Then dump the bosses off your back.
   Are your clothes all patched and tattered ?
     Are you living in a shack ?
   Would you have your troubles scattered ?
     Then dump the bosses off your back.

 Are you almost split asunder?
     Loaded like a long-eared jack ?
   Boob - why don't you buck like thunder,
     And dump the bosses off your back ?
   All the agonies you suffer
     You can end with one good whack
   Stiffen up, you orn'ry duffer
     And dump the bosses off your back.
   (IWW Songbook 9th Edition, 1916)
