Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more
My woman done left and took all the reasons I was working for
You better not try to stand in my way as I'm a walking out the door
Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more

I've been workin' in this factory for now on fifteen years
All this time I watched my woman drowning in a pool of tears
And I've seen a lot of good folk die who had a lot of bills to pay
I'd give the shirt right off of my back if I had the guts to say

Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more
My woman done left and took all the reasons I was working for
You better not try to stand in my way as I'm a walking out the door
Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more

Well that foreman, he's a regular dog, the line boss, he's a fool
Got a brand new flat-top haircut, Lord, he thinks he's cool
One of these days, I'm gonna blow my top and that sucker, he's gonna pay
Lord, I can't wait to see their faces when I get up the nerve to say

Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more
My woman done left and took all the reasons I was working for
You better not try to stand in my way as I'm a walking out the door
Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more
Take this job and shove it
