I was standing down on Gratiot Street one day,
When I thought I overheard a soldier say,
"Every tank and plane in camp
Carries the U.A.W. stamp
And I am U.A.W. too. I'm proud to say."

CHORUS:
It's that U.A.W.-C.I.O.
Makes that army roll and go,
Turnin' out jeeps and tanks and airplanes every day.
It's that U.A.W.-C.I.O.
Makes that army roll and go --
Puts wheels on the U.S.A.

I was there when that union came to town,
I was there when that union came to town;
I was standing at gate four
When I heard the people roar:
"Ain't nobody keeps us auto-workers down."

I was there on that cold December day
When we heard about Pearl Harbor far away;
I was down at Cadillac Square
When the union rallied there
To put them plans for pleasure cars away.

There'll be a union label in Berlin
When the union boys in uniform march in;
And rolling in the ranks
There'll be U.A.W. tanks
Roll Hitler out and roll the union in!
