David Allan Coe – Take This Job And Shove It lyrics

By David Allan Coe

Chorus: TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT/ I AIN'T WORKING' HERE NO MORE MY WOMAN DONE LEFT AND TOOK ALL OF THE REASONS I WAS WORKING FOR YOU BETTER NOT TRY TO STAND IN MY WAY/ WHEN I WALK OUT THE DOOR TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT/ I AIN'T WORKING' HERE NO MORE

I BEEN WORKING IN THIS FACTORY/ PRETTY CLOSE TO 15 YEARS I'VE SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS' WOMEN/ STANDING IN A POOL OF TEARS I'VE SEEN A LOT OF KINFOLKS DYING/ I HAD A LOT OF BILLS TO PAY LORD, I'D GIVE THE SHIRT RIGHT OFFING' MY BACK/ IF I HAD THE NERVE TO SAY:

Repeat Chorus

THE FOREMAN IS A REGULAR SOB. AND THE NIGHT BOSS, HE'S A FOOL HE GOT HIMSELF A BRAND NEW FLATTOP HAIRCUT LORD, HE REALLY THINKS THAT'S COOL ONE OF THESE DAYS I'M GONNA BLOW MY TOP AND THERE'S GONNA BE HELL TO PAY I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEIR FACES WHEN I GET THE NERVE TO SAY

Repeat Chorus
