C-O-L-A sung to the tune of Y-M-C-A

State Worker, I know you feel down.
It’s hard, cause our wages are losin’ ground.
It’s hard, let’s show this is a union town
So, There’s no need to be unhappy.

State Worker, there’s a place you can go.
With your union, when you’re short on your dough.
You can get active, and I’m sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time.

Everyone deserves a C-O-L-A
Everyone deserves a C-O-L-A

It means everything, standing together now
No CONTRACT without a COLA

Everyone deserves a C-O-L-A
Everyone deserves a C-O-L-A

It means everything, standing together now
No CONTRACT without a COLA

State Worker, are you listening to me?
I said, state worker, what do you want to see?
I said, state worker, you can make real your dreams.
But you got to know this one thing!

No one, does it all by themselves.
I said, state worker, put apathy on the shelf,
And just, UNITE, join your union today.
Together, there’s a better way

Everyone deserves a C-O-L-A
Everyone deserves a C-O-L-A

It means everything, standing together now
No CONTRACT without a COLA

Everyone deserves a C-O-L-A
Everyone deserves a C-O-L-A
It means everything, standing together now
No CONTRACT without a COLA

State worker, I was once in your shoes.
I said, I was down and out with the blues.
I felt no one, cared about my struggles.
I felt like I was all alone …

That’s when, someone came up to me,
And said, state worker, take a walk up the street.
There’s a place there, it’s your union local.
Just become active and vocal.

Everyone deserves a C-O-L-A
Everyone deserves a C-O-L-A

It means everything, standing together now
No CONTRACT without a COLA

C-O-L-A….it’s our turn for a C-O-L-A.

Brothers, Sisters, there’s no need to feel down.
Brothers, Sisters, get yourself off the ground.

C-O-L-A….it’s our turn for a C-O-L-A.

Brothers, Sisters, there’s no need to feel down.
Brothers, Sisters, get yourself off the ground.

C-O-L-A….it’s our turn for a C-O-L-A.

Brothers, Sisters, are you listening to me?
Brothers, Sisters, what do you wanna see?
