Une chanson des IWW, l’organisation du syndicalisme révolutionnaire aux États-Unis, sans doute écrite par Joe Hill sur la musique de My Bonny, et chantée par Cisco Houston. Il y est question de la soupe populaire.

SOUP SOUP

I’m spending my nights in the flophouse,
I’m spending my days on the street,
I’m looking for work and I find none,
I wish I had something to eat.

Soo-oop, soo-oop, they give me a bowl of soo-oo-oop.
Soo-oop, soo-oop, they give me a bowl of soup!

I spent twenty years in a fact’ry,
I did everything I was told.
They said I was faithful and loyal,
Now now even before I am old:

Soo-oop, soo-oop, they give me a bowl of soo-oo-oop.
Soo-oop, soo-oop, they give me a bowl of soup!

I saved fifteen bucks with my banker,
To buy me a car and yacht.
I went down to draw out my money,
And this was the answer I got:

Soo-oop, soo-oop, they give me a bowl of soo-oo-oop.
Soo-oop, soo-oop, they give me a bowl of soup!
Oh, soo-oop, soo-oop, they give me a bowl of soo-oo-oop.
Soo-oop, soo-oop, they give me a bowl of soup!
