Learning to labour 

Worker, why do you sleep

Why do you slumber so deep

Time to rise, rise to work

You must labour to learn

 

Worker, you’re not a fool

Making out, behind the tool

Don’t fear the machine, just be lean

No ignorance here

 

The will to learn, learning to labour

The need to earn, to sell your power

The will to learn, learning to labour

The story is old, sent from the tower

Turn it around, labouring to learn

Reveal it all, the Tony Huzzard song

 

Some say you’re lazy by nature

They’re wrong, there’s a mirror on the wall

Worker, I see your true creature

Follow me and stand tall

 

Stories made, stories told

This one you might want to know

No need to hide, no need to pretend

I’m capital’s best friend

 

The will to learn, learning to labour

The need to earn, to sell your power

The will to learn, learning to labour

The story is old, sent from the tower

Turn it around, labouring to learn

Reveal it all, the Tony Huzzard song
