Music with its Sleeves Rolled UP (Thanks to Michael O'Hare)

Any crowd can learn this song after one chorus and one verse
 
 
Come all you Californians,
Here's  news to give you cheer,
The ninety-nine percent who work
Are standing up right here.
cho after each verse:
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
My grandpa paid his taxes,
He built the U of C,
I owe it to my children,
That knowledge should be free.
It used to be that people
Could work and save some pay
To give their kids a better life
And see a brighter day.
 
There's work to do for all of us
Prop thirteen shut us down
We're taking back our government
For field and town and gown.
 
They say all down the valley,
There are no neutrals there.
You’ll either be a one of us,
Or  die from poisoned air.
Oh, people can you stand it?
Ten years and more of pain.
Get with the 99%
And board the people's train!
The 1% are on Fox News ,
Don’t listen to their lies.
There's none of us that's got a chance,
Unless we organize.
