I wanna know
When will we be paid for the work we’ve done

When will we be paid for the work we’ve done
When will we be paid for the work we’ve done

We worked this country
From shore to shore
Our women cooked all your food
And washed all your clothes
We picked cotton and laid the railroad steel
Worked our hands down to the bone at your lumber mill

When will we be paid for the work we’ve done
When will we be paid for the work we’ve done

Fought in your wars, in every land
To keep this country free, y’all
For women, children, and men
But anytime we ask for pay or a loan
That’s when everything seems to turn out wrong

We’ve been beat up, called name, shot down, and stoned
Every time we do right, somebody say we’re wrong

When will we be paid for the work we’ve done
When will we be paid for the work we’ve done

Oh, oh when, when will we be paid ?
We’ve given up our sweat, now
And all of our tears
Stumbled through this life
For more than 300 years
I, I wanna know, the work we’ve done
When will be paid for the work we’ve done

Tell me
When will we be paid for the work we’ve done
When will we be paid for the work we’ve done

Will we ever be proud
Of "My country, tis of thee"
Will we ever sing out loud
Sweet land of Liberty

When will we be paid
For the work we’ve done

When will we be paid for the work we’ve done
When will we be paid for the work we’ve done
