Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call
Well, you ain't so big, you just tall, that's all

You got me a working boss man, workin' around the clock
Want a little drink of water, but you won't let time, to me to stop
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call
Well, you ain't so big, you just tall, that's all

I say you got me a working boss man, workin' around the clock
Want a little drink of water, but you won't let time to me to stop
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call
