Get Off Your Knees!

A song by Lydia Field Snow, performed at Northeastern Illinois University. Thanks to Maureen Hickey for filming. Dr. Charles Joseph Smith on piano and Al Williamson on Gibson electric guitar.

Give us a place to share our views
not in a survey our own news.
Adjuncts need a union to stand up
and say enough is enough
To say enough is enough.

Adjuncts sing out your blues
Worn out what’s left to lose?
Endless loans no guarantees
Adjuncts get off your knees
Stand up and set us free.

We are not workers academics
We are invited to your gimmicks.
Universe of higher bullshit.
Cut our hours down we’ll quit
Cut our healthcare down we’ll quit.

Adjuncts sing out your blues
Worn out what’s left to lose?
Student loans no guarantees
Adjuncts, get off your knees
Stand up and set us free.

Signed, sealed delivered it’s yours
We can together push through that door.
Adjuncts need a union to stand up
and say enough is enough.
To say enough is enough..

Students sing out your blues
Worn out what’s left to lose?
Student loans no guarantees
Students get off your knees.
Stand up and set us free!
