Eddie Kendricks – Skippin' Work Today lyrics

Out of bed grabbed my shoes off to work no time to lose last night I had fun but I'm the sleepy one today so it's off to work how I hate to go but I just took off two days ago it's such a lovely day how I'd like to stay away and do somethings I'd like to do

Skippin' work is on my mind they'll look for me oh I'll be hard to find my boss will be mad but I'll be oh so glad today maybe not tomorrow

There must be something that I can say a reason to take off today I know my boss thinks that I'm insane but today's too nice a day to let pass my way that's why

Skippin' work is on my mind they'll look for me and oh I'll be hard to find J-B and life is just a game we play skippin' work will bring me sorrow I, I could lose my job tomorrow, I'm skippin' work, I'm skippin' work, I'm skippin' work today

    I thought it interesting that Isaih Thomas is calling for a skip work day today, Sept 26, 2016. Skippin' Work Today should be the theme song behind this movement, bcause the lyrics hit most of the key points pro or con about it. There are many strong comments posted on the web about Mr. Thomas, and about his protest. Check it out and see for yourself how Eddie's song would be right on time.
