Working Man's Ph.D

In the style of

Aaron Tippin

Lyrics

you get up
every mornin'
'fore the
sun comes up
toss a lunchbox
into a pickup truck

a long hard day
sure ain't much fun
but you gotta
get it started
if you wanna
get it done

you set your mind
and roll up
your sleeves
you're workin' on
a workin' man's ph.d.

with your heart
and your hands
and the sweat
on your brow

you build the things
that really
make the world
go 'round

if it works if it runs
if it lasts for years
you can bet
your bottom dollar
it was made right here

with pride and honor
and dignity
from a man with a
workin' man's ph.d.

no there ain't
no shame
in a job well done
from drivin' a nail
to drivin' a truck
as a matter of fact
i'd like to
set things straight

a few more people
should be
pullin' their weight
if you want
a cram course
in reality
you get yourself
a workin' man's ph.d.

when the quittin'
whistle blows
and the dust
settles down
there ain't
no trophies
or cheerin' crowds

you face yourself
at the end of the day
and be damn proud
of whatever
you've made

you can't hang it
on the wall
for the world to see
but you got yourself
a workin' man's ph.d.

no there ain't
no shame
in a job well done
from drivin' a nail
to drivin' a truck
as a matter of fact
i'd like to
set things straight

a few more people
should be
pullin' their weight
if you want
a cram course
in reality
you get yourself
a workin' man's ph.d.
