Labor Day*

Labor day, Labor day
Today’s the day the working people celebrate
Shops are closed, the sun feels good
We can take a walk around the neighborhood

Labor day, the sky is blue
All the workers gonna have a barbecue
Breathe the air, say hooray
This is your very first labor day


Labor day, labor day
The rest of the world does it the first of may
So much for solidarity, but what the hey
September’s when we celebrate Labor Day

Labor day, Labor Day
Tomorrow all the workers put their toys away
Let’s take a walk, and eat sorbet
Today is your very first Labor Day

Today is your very first Labor Day

(lyrics: Dan Bern)
