A Song for WalMart Employees

To the tune of Nat King Cole’s “Smile”

Smile, though your pay is dropping
Smile, though your healthcare’s stopping
When you’re not paid overtime, that’s a crime
But just smile– it’s futile to fight them
Smile– God’s not going to smite them
And the law won’t be coming through for you

Light up those signs of Rollbacks
Smile, though they’re fond of flat tax
Layoffs, you fear, may be ever so near
That’s the time you must be congenial
Smile, though the labor’s menial
And they won’t fire you for a while
If you just smile

(extra verse)

Smile, it’s a job requirement.
Smile, you might reach retirement.
Though you’ll get blamed that their sales have been lame
But just smile or they’re going to fire you
There’s not much else you can do
You’ll find your dignity on trial
But you must smile

It’s the time you must be congenial
Smile, though the labor’s menial
And they won’t fire you for a while
If you just smile
