BEER TALK IN ROW HOUSES
Music and lyrics by Paul Iorio
Copyright 2015

Work all your life
But they fail to mention
That in the next recession
They’ll be takin’ back your pension

If you work real hard
You might become a bum
Just because your bosses
Did something very dumb

Rich man says
Work’ll set you free
Easy for him to say
‘Cause he’s won the lottery

And don’t work too smart
Or upstage the boss
That’s a recipe
For real financial loss

Most kinds of jobs
Are such a waste of time
Better to drink wine
Than work an assembly line

[(spoken) Won’t do you much good to pull those
18 hour shifts; ‘cause when lay-offs come,
bosses forget all the good you’ve done]

Own your life
Everything you got
If you want a nickel
Better earn a dollar first

If you want a nickel
Better earn a dollar first
