Tune: Workers Lives / Workers Stories.


We work! (2 3 4)
We work! (2 3 4)

Jump out the bed at 7:00 a.m.
Wash my face and get to the place.
By 8:00 a.m., the boss is on my case.
He says to me, “You’d better pick up the pace!”

We work! (2 3 4)
We work! (2 3 4)

Now, it’s 9:00 a.m.; I’m working on time,
Double time, triple time, overtime.
Working nine hours a day, six days a week,
While my friends are still out on the street.

We work! (2 3 4)
We work! (2 3 4)

10:15…. the rat race is on.
Short break…. we can’t even use the phone.
Lunch time comes and goes real quick.
Gulp it down fast and get on the stick.

We work! (2 3 4)
We work! (2 3 4)

One o’clock…. four hours to go.
You’re working hard, but time goes slow.
Five o’clock…. time to stop.
Thank God it’s all over ’cause I’m about to drop.

We work! (2 3 4)
We work! (2 3 4)

Home by 6:00…. too tired to cook.
Pick up the kids; drop off a book.
Keeping busy…. no time for the blues.
Fall asleep while watching the news.

We work! (2 3 4)
We work! (2 3 4)

Afternoon, midnight, or 9:00 to 5:00,
All God’s children got to work to survive.
We’re the muscle and brains that make America thrive.
We’re the backbone of the nation, and that’s no jive!

We work! (2 3 4)
We work! (2 3 4)

We work!
