Sell Your Labour not Your Soul


Brian McNeill


Come and listen through the land, working Woman working man,

Young and old, true and bold, join the union,

Black brown or white, get ready for the fight,

Young and old, true and bold, join the union,

Would you stand upon your rights, or would you live upon your knees?

Doff the cap and look away, while the bosses take their ease?

Young and old, true and Bold,

Sell your labour not your soul,

Solidarity's your goal, join the union.


Unemployment is the fear, the bosses whisper in your ear,

Young and old, true and bold, join the union,

Short term contract when they hire, makes it easier to fire,

Young and old, true and bold, join the union,

Efficiency's the cry, technology's the game,

And every dividend you double, well your wages stay the same,

Young and old, true and bold,

sell your labour not your soul,

Solidarity's your goal, join the union.


They say the Union's day is done, and the country's moving on,

Young and old, true and bold, join the union,

Aye, Tony Blaire knows best, private sector does the rest,

Young and old, ture and bold, join the union,

Theyall privatize your hopes, they'll privatize your fears,

If they catch your children crying, they'll privatize the tears,

Young and old, true and bold,

Sell your labour not your soul,

Solidarity's your goal, join the union.


We will rise we will grow, we are stronger than we know,

Young and old, true and bold, join the union,

And we will not be denied, for we have right upon our side,

Young and old, true and bold, join the union,

So raise the banner high, and let us all march behind,

Let Scotland be the first to draw the new union line,

Young and old, true and bold,

Sell your labour not your soul,

Solidarity's your goal, join the union.

Young and old, true and bold,

Sell your labour not your soul,

Solidarity's your goal, join the union.
