[Verse 1]
A      E                            A            E
Please give me your attention, I'll introduce to you
                             B
A man who is a credit to the old Red White and Blue
    E                          A          E
His head is made of lumber and solid as a rock
                              B
He is a common worker and his name is Mr. Block
    F#                        Bm             B
And Block he thinks he may be president some day

[Chorus]
E                                         E7
Oh Mr. Block, you were born by mistake
B                  B7
You take the cake, you make me ache
           E            E7             A           A7
[Go] tie a rock on your block and then jump in the lake
       E           B7        E
Kindly do that for Liberty's sake!

[Verse 2]
A    E                       A             E
Yes, Mr. Block is lucky - he got a job, by gee!
                                B
The shark got seven dollars for job and fare and fee
     E                           A                   E
They shipped him to a desert and dumped him with his truck
                                     B
But when he tried to find his job he sure was out of luck
   F#                             Bm                B
He shouted, "That's too raw! I'll fix them with the law!"

[Chorus]
E                                         E7
Oh Mr. Block, you were born by mistake
B                  B7
You take the cake, you make me ache
           E            E7             A           A7
[Go] tie a rock on your block and then jump in the lake
       E           B7        E
Kindly do that for Liberty's sake!

[Verse 3]
A     E                          A            E
Block hiked back to the city but wasn't doing well
                                  B
He said "I'll join the union, the great AF of L".
   E                           A            E
He got a job that morning, got fired by the night
                                         B
He said, "I'll see Sam Gompers and he'll fix that foreman right!"
    F#                             Bm            B
Sam Gompers said, "You see, you've got our sympa-thy."

[Chorus]
E                                         E7
Oh Mr. Block, you were born by mistake
B                  B7
You take the cake, you make me ache
           E            E7             A           A7
[Go] tie a rock on your block and then jump in the lake
       E           B7        E
Kindly do that for Liberty's sake!

[Verse 4]
A E                          A             E
E-lection day he shouted, "A Socialist for Mayor!"
                                 B
The comrade got elected [and] he happy was for fair
    E                     A            E
But after the election he got an awful shock
                                        B
[When] a great big socialistic bull did rap him on the block
    F#                        Bm                 B
And Comrade Block did sob, "I helped him get his job!"

[Chorus]
E                                         E7
Oh Mr. Block, you were born by mistake
B                  B7
You take the cake, you make me ache
           E            E7             A           A7
[Go] tie a rock on your block and then jump in the lake
       E           B7        E
Kindly do that for Liberty's sake!

[Verse 5]
A   E                        A              E
The money kings in Cuba blew up the gunboat Maine,
                              B
But Block got awful angry and blamed it all on Spain.
   E                            A                 E
He went right in the battle and there he lost his leg,
                                         B
And now he's peddling shoestrings and is walking on a peg.
   F#                       Bm                   E
He shouts, "Remember Maine, Hurrah! To hell with Spain!"

[Chorus]
E                                         E7
Oh Mr. Block, you were born by mistake
B                  B7
You take the cake, you make me ache
           E            E7             A           A7
[Go] tie a rock on your block and then jump in the lake
       E           B7        E
Kindly do that for Liberty's sake!

[Verse 6]
A    E                              A            E
Poor Block he died one evening, I'm very glad to state
                                B
He climbed the golden ladder up to the pearly gate
   E                           A                 E
He said, "Oh Mister Peter, one thing I'd like to tell
                                    B
I'd like to meet the Astorbilts and John D Rockerfell!"
    F#                             Bm                B
Old Pete said, "Is that so? You'll meet them down be-low!"

[Chorus]
E                                         E7
Oh Mr. Block, you were born by mistake
B                  B7
You take the cake, you make me ache
           E            E7             A           A7
[Go] tie a rock on your block and then jump in the lake
       E           B7        E
Kindly do that for Liberty's sake!
