Joyce Berry – I Work Hard For The Money lyrics

I work hard for the money
So hard for it, honey
I work hard for the money
So you better treat me right

Repeat Chorus

Lord only knows I'm there on the corner stand
And I wonder where I am
And it's strange to me
Some people seem to have everything
Nine A. M. On the hour hand
And I'm waiting for the bell
And I'm looking real pretty
Just wait for my clientele

Repeat Chorus twice

Twenty eight years have come and gone
And I've seen a lot of tears
Of the ones who come in
They really seem to need me there
It's a sacrifice working day to day
For little money just tips for pay
But it's worth it all
Just to hear them say that they care

Repeat Chorus

I already know I've seen my bad times
I already know these are the good times
I'll never sell out
I never will, not for a dollar bill

Repeat Chorus and fade
