Happy Days
(When Jesus Washed My Sins Away)

Happy day! Happy day!
When first we joined the AMA
They put us in the s-b-way
And cats have kittens every day
Happy days! Happy days!

When first I joined the AWU
They organised a job for two
And you ‘rep’ me and I’ll ‘rep’ you
Happy me, Happy you.

Happy day, liberty!
When first I joined the ALP
They let me vote for an M.P.
Who promised he would set us free
Happy days, pure and free
When first I joined the ALP.
