Worker’s Song

We present this work in honor of Labor Day.

Maya Angelou
1928 – 2014


Big ships shudder down to the sea
Because of me
Railroads run on the twinness track
‘Cause of my back

Whoppa, Whoppa
Whoppa, Whoppa

Cars stretch to a super length
‘Cause of my strength
Planes fly high over seas and lands
‘Cause of my hands

Whoppa, Whoppa
Whoppa, Whoppa

I wake
starts the factory humming
I work late
keep the whole world running
And I got something… something coming… coming

Whoppa, Whoppa
