[POLITICAL] [SHEET MUSIC] The Man That Waters the Workers' Beer

London: The Workers' Music Association, 1939. 31 x 24 cm. A chipper tune, from the viewpoint of THE MAN (or capitalist if you prefer).
I am the man, the very fat man,
That waters the workers' beer
I am the man, the very fat man,
That waters the workers' beer
And what do I care if it makes them ill,
If it makes them terribly queer
I've a car, a yacht, and an aeroplane,
And I waters the workers' beer...
On March 1, 1936, the Workers' Music Association was set up by leading composer and radical, Alan Bush, at the Whitechapel Art Gallery. The WMA has been singing and playing music for peace and workers' rights for over 80 years. Some edge wear, with horizontal creasing, small closed tear to rear fold. Cream illustrated paper. Good.
