I was workin' on the project
Beggin' for relief for shoes
I was workin' on the project
Beggin' for relief for shoes
Because the rock an concrete
Hoo-well-well, now they giving my feet the blues

Workin' on the project
With holes all in my clothes
Workin' on the project
With holes all in my clothes
Tryin' to make me a dime
To keep the rent man from puttin me outdo's

I am workin' on the project
Tryin' to make both ends meet
I am workin' on the project
Tryin' to make ends meet
But the payday is so long
Woo-well-well, until the grocery man won't let me eat

Workin' on the project
My gal spending all my dough
Workin' on the project
My gal spending all my dough
Now I have waked up on her
Ooh-well-well, and I won't be that weak no mo'

Workin' on the project
With payday three or four weeks away
Workin' on the project
With payday three or four weeks away
Now, how can you make they meet
Ooo-well-well-well, when you can't get no pay?
