about

About the 19th Century Benevolent Capitalism and fair treatment of workers pioneered by two famous Yorkshire Industrialists Titus Salt (of Saltaire) and Joseph Rowntree (of York).

lyrics

Captains of Industry
(Music and lyrics: Tim Hunter)

Capitalism
Put more food on the table
Than Socialism
Ever was able to

Look after workers
And keep them all healthy
That is the best way
To make yourself wealthy

Titus Salt
And Joseph Rowntree
Were the
Captains of Industry

Titus Salt
And Joseph Rowntree
Were the
Captains of Industry

Don’t need the unions
Just need to be ethical
Just need to be human
And be equable

Philanthropy
And a little charity
I guess its common sense
And then we all stay free

Titus Salt
Joseph Rowntree
Were the
Captains of Industry

Titus Salt
Joseph Rowntree
Were the
Captains of Industry

Titus Salt
Joseph Rowntree
Were the
Captains of Industry

Benevolent Capitalism
It’s better than Communism
Benevolent Capitalism
It’s better than Communism
