Canzone di autore anonimo, sulla melodia di “Everybody’s Doing It” di Irving Berlin.
Canzone anti-crumiri direttamente dal “Lawrence textile strike”, Lawrence, Massachusetts, 1912, diretto dall’Industrial Workers of the World (IWW).

Al proposito si vedano anche John Golden and the Lawrence Strike, Bread and Roses di Arturo Giovannitti e Bread and Roses di Judy Collins.



“Mr. Lowe” è Arthur H. Lowe, manager della Lancaster Mills Corporation, allora proprietaria di gran parte degli impianti di Lawrence.
Few of them are scabbing it, scabbing it, scabbing it,
Few of them are scabbing it, scabbing it, scabbing it.

Few scab weavers sneaking through the line,
They’re the ones Mr. Lowe will fine,
They sneak in and get their measly pay,
Let us pray, let us pray, let us pray – SAY –

Few of them are scabbing it, scabbing it, scabbing it,
Few of them are scabbing it, scabbing it, scabbing it.

Mr. Lowe says be will treat them well,
But after he’s used them, he'll let them go to hell,
While the strikers cheerfully yell,
Few of them are scabbing it now.
