I work all day and I work all night 4x
I work all day and I work all night
I work so my wife and kids will have a pleasant life
I work as many jobs as I can
I'm proud to work I guess I'm just a working man
-who am I to complain
I live in the lap of luxury
I got a car and a big tv that's so fine
I go to the pictures when I can
-the pictures take me to far-away lands
-almost makes me forget who I am
Sometimes at work I've a fantasy
That I'm a man who livesa life of mystery
(but) then the whistle brings me to
I can't forget why I'm here, I've got a job to do
-Responsibility- is much more important to a man like me
I work all day and I work all night
I work all day and I work all night - etc. etc.
Guitar solo
I got a job at the factory
But I don't mind cause I know that the job is right for me
I don't complain I'm satisfied
And I don't care to rub elbows with the wealthy
They've got their problems too, I don't envy them a bit don't ya know
I'm doin' what I want and it ain't so bas
I've got everything that a man could have
(I'm) living in the lap of luxury - living in the lap of luxury
Work all day and I work all night
I work all day and I work all night etc. etc.
