Says, I work so hard every day, I can't eat at night
Says, I work so hard every day, I can't eat at night
Says, I jump in the bed, Lord, I just done lost my appetite

Says, you gotta pay house rent, buy grocery too
You gotta have some coal and you gotta have some wood
And you gotta have some ice, boy, to keep your food good and cool
REFRAIN: Says, a working man have a hard time
Now, because things just don't get easy, whoo, well, well, until he's dead

Say, your wife will need a coat, and then she want shoes
Your children got to have something, say, you know they got to go to school
Say, you know a man just naturally got to be a working fool
REFRAIN: Says, a working man have a hard time
Now, because things just don't get easy, whoo, well, well, 'til he's dead

Said, now you've got to pay your furniture bill, and get a haircut, too
You got to have some cigarettes, and your insurance is due
Say, you know a man can't go naked, he got to have clothes too
REFRAIN: Says, a working man have a hard time
Now, because things just don't get easy, whoo, well, well, until he's dead
