By David Allan Coe

Dedication: To Greg Blackwell, Marshall Leib, Billy Sherrill, Johnny Paycheck and all the people involved in making the motion picture Take this job and shove it.

TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT TOO

WHERE THE SUN DON'T NEVER SHINE



THIS AIN'T THE FIRST JOB I EVER QUIT

AND I KNOW IT WONT BE MY LAST

PAYCHECK, WHO KNOWS AFTER TODAY

YOU MAY BE A THING OF THE PAST

IM SO TIRED OF WORKING LIKE A DOG

THERE'S GOTTA BE A BETTER WAY

BILLS, HELL IF I THOUGHT ABOUT BILLS

ID OF NEVER HAD THE NERVE TO SAY...



THIS OLD BREWERIES BATTEN ME DOWN

ITS THE SAME THING BEER AFTER BEER

FORMAN THAT'S SURE, SOME PROMOTION

THEY SHOULD'VE NAMED ME FOOL OF THE YEAR

I'VE LOST MORE THAN A COUPLE OF FRIENDS

ID OF MUCH RATHER GOTTEN A RAISE

BOSS, HELL I DON'T WANNA BE BOSS

WORKING THESE PEOPLE LIKE SLAVES
