A man wants to work...for his pay
A man wants a place...in the sun
A man wants a gal proud to say
That she'll become his lovin' wife
He wants a chance to give his kids a better life
Well hello ah.... hello brother

You can travel all around the world and back
You can fly or sail or ride a railroad track
But no matter where you go you're gonna find
That people have the same things on their minds

A man wants to work...for his pay
A man wants a place...in the sun
A man wants a gal...proud to say
That she'll become...his lovin' wife
He wants a chance to give his kids a better life
Well hello brother, hello

(instrumental break)

He wants a chance to give his kids a better life, yes
Well hello, hello, brother hello
I said hello, hello, brother hello
