Huey Lewis & The News – Workin' For A Livin' lyrics

Somedays won't end ever
And somedays pass on by
I'll be working here forever
Atleast until I die

Dammed if you do
Dammed if you don't
I'm supposed to get a raise week
You know damn well I won't

Workin' for a livin'
(Workin')
Workin' for a livin'
(Workin')

Workin' for a livin', livin' and workin'
I'm taking what they giving
'Cause I'm working for a livin'

Hey, I'm not complaining
'Cause I really need the work
Hitting up my buddy's
Got me feeling like a jerk

Hundred dollar car note
Two hundred rent
I get a check on Friday
But it's all ready spent

Workin' for a livin'
(Workin')
Workin' for a livin'
(Workin')

Workin' for a livin', livin' and workin'
I'm taking what they giving
'Cause I'm working for a livin'

Ooh, workin' for a livin'
Ooh, taking what they giving
Ooh, workin' for a livin', ooh, ooh

Bus boy, bartender
Ladies of the night
Grease monkey, ex-junky
Winner of the fight

Walking on the streets
It's really all the same
Selling souls, rock n' roll
Any other day

Workin' for a livin'
(Workin')
Workin' for a livin'
(Workin')

Workin' for a livin', livin' and workin'
I'm taking what they giving
'Cause I'm working for a livin'

Workin' for a livin', livin' and workin'
I'm taking what they giving
'Cause I'm working for a livin'
Workin' for a livin', livin' and workin'
