About the song
I was at one of my first real jobs, bored and annoyed. Surely there is more to life.....
Lyrics
Up in the morning for the sun shows her head
Back after dusk tumbling into bead
Up the next morning with the same routine
Feeling like a man but working like a machine

Chorus:
Working
Harder every day
Sweating for the pay, and a promise.
Working
What the hell for?
Driven to the floor, in your sorrow.

A father with a family has to work to pay the rent.
A revolutionary pays the dues for his dissent.
The rich have got it easy but they do not want to share.
So we work until we qualify for Medicare.

Chorus again:
