Another sack of groceries
Another tank of gas
These days a dollar it goes to quick
Man, it just don't last
Always something, can't catch a break
Ain't no saving for a rainy day

[Chorus]
I'm a paycheck man
Working hired hand
I'd take this job and shove it but I just can't
Gettin' up out of bed
Keepin' them babies fed
Never gonna get ahead
But there ain't no quittin' doing all I can
I gotta make a livin', I'm a paycheck man

Broke-down back, hell just my luck
I tried to call in sick but the boss man says
"Son, you better show up."
So I bite my tongue and I check my pride
And I punch that clock, ya'll, that's just the life

[Chorus]

Well, folks like us are the heartbeat of this great land
Puttin' in more than we getting back
Workin' overtime for uncle sam

[Chorus]

I'm a paycheck man
