I got a boss with a crew cut breathing down my neck
He says he's gonna teach me about the word Respect
And at the end of the day I'm barely alive
But ain't it amazin' the trail that I'm blazin'
When that whistle blows at five

Chorus:

Tonight is mine
It's party time
When I'm off the clock
I'm ready to rock
And I'm a feeling fine
Gonna give myself a raise
And raise this bottle one more time
And I'll owe my soul tomorrow lord
But tonight is mine

I do an honest days work for an honest days pay
A forty hour week that's the american way
I know I'll never sit on the board of this company
But I never get bored sittin' at the bar
Hangin' with people like me

Chorus

Gonna give myself a raise
And raise this bottle one more time
And I'll owe my soul tomorrow lord
But tonight is mine

And I'll owe my soul tomorrow lord
But tonight is mine

I owe I owe
Off to work I go

But tonight is mine

I owe I owe
It's off to work I go (Repeat 2X)

But tonight is mine
