Keep on Working†††††††††††††††

You might like to look at mountains or waterfalls or fountains

Or watch the wild birds wheeling through the air

Youíll see it all much better once you climb thatladder

Thereís a great view of the parking lot up there

 

Well Iím no complainer Ė my job is a no-brainer

And on this team thatís how Iíve got to play

If I give Ďem good production and survive the force reduction

I might get a window seat some day

 

Thatís why Iím working, I got to keep on working

I keep on working night and day

††††††††††††††††††††††† Thereís bound to be a payoff if I survive the layoff

††††††††††††††††††††††† That's why I'm working night and day

 

Me and my lover, we have lots of time together

During my vacation every May

But Iíve got debts to work off so for now I guess Iíll

Keep on working night and day

 

††††††††††††††††††††††† Yeah I'm still working, I got to keep on working

††††††††††††††††††††††† I keep on working night and day

††††††††††††††††††††††† If my love lifeís uninspired, well at night Iím kinda tired

††††††††††††††††††††††† But I keep working night and day

†††††††††††††††††††††††

Itís real hard to take a day off with student loans to payoff

And the kids might need a doctor one of these days

No doctor wants to cure you if the bosses donít insure you

So I keep working night and day

 

††††††††††††††††††††††† That's why I'm working, I got to keep on working

††††††††††††††††††††††† Keep on working night and day

††††††††††††††††††††††† I might like to see my kid and hear about stuff she did

††††††††††††††††††††††† But I'm too busy working night and day

 

It ain't personal Ė itís business. Like when Judas gave Christ a kiss

Thereís things youíve got to do to earn your pay

If you want to get stuff thatís nice itís going to take a little bit of sacrifice

So keep on working night and day

 

Well I was sunk in sorrow, I didnít want to face tomorrow

I knew I had to find a better way

So the doc put me on prozak I got my get up and go back

To go back to working night and day

†††††††††††††

†††††††††††††† †††††††† And now I'm back to working, I'm really happy working

††††††††††††††††††††††† I keep on working night and day

††††††††††††††††††††††† If you need someone to hug you, no problem, theyíll just drug you

††††††††††††††††††††††† To keep you working night and day

 

Well, the bosses shut the plant down; they yanked it out of our town

They took it where the workers get less pay

They got a great big bonus for making workers homeless

Now weíre not working anyway

 

††††††††††††††††††††††† So keep on working, everybody keep on working,

†† †††††††††††††††††††† Keep on working night and day

††††††††††††††††††††††† Just push that big wheel 'round till they lay you in the ground

††††††††††††††††††††††† Keep on working night and day
