Sing Me a Song With Social Significance
(Harold Rome)

Sing me a song with social significance,
All o ther tunes are taboo.
I want a ditty with heat in it,
Appealing with feeling and meat in it!
Sing me a song with social significance
Or you can sing till you're blue
Let meaning shine from ev'ry line,
Or I won't love you.

Sing me ot wars and sing me ot breadlines,
Tell me of front-page news.
Sing me of strikes and last-minute headlines,
Dress your observation in syncopation,
Sing me a song with social significance,
There's nothing else that will do-
It must get hot with what is what
Or I won't love you.

Sing me a song with social significance,
All other tunes are taboo.
I want a song that's satirical,
Abd putting the mere into miracle.
Sing me a song with social significance
Or you can sing till you're blue;
It must be packed with social fact
Or I won't love you.

Sing me of kings and con'frences martial,
Tell me of mills and mines.
Sing me ot courts that aren't impartial,
Wlhat's to be done with 'em, tell me in rhyme!
Sing me a song with social significance,
There's nothing else that will do-
It must be tense with common sense,
Or I won't love you.

From ILGWU musical Pins and Needles, 1937
