Workin' For A Livin'

In the style of

Huey Lewis and the News

Lyrics

ooh woh

some days
won't end ever
and some days
pass on by
i'll be workin'
here forever
at least until i die

damned if you do
damned if you don't
i'm supposed
to get a raise
next week
you know damn well
i won't
workin' for a livin'

workin' for a livin'
workin' for a livin'
livin' and a-workin'
i'm takin'
what they're givin'
'cause i'm
workin' for a livin'

hey i'm not
complainin'
'cause i really need
the work

but hittin' up
my buddy's
got me feelin'
like a jerk

hundred-dollar
car note
two-hundred rent
i get a check
on friday
but it's
already spent
workin' for a livin'

workin' for a livin'
workin' for a livin'
livin' and a-workin'
i'm takin'
what they're givin'
'cause i'm
workin' for a livin'

woh woh
workin' for a livin'
woh woh
takin' what
they're givin'
woh woh
workin' for a livin'
woh woh oh

busboy bartender
ladies of the night
grease monkey
ex-junkie
winner of the fight

walkin' on the streets
it's really
all the same
sellin' souls
rock 'n' roll
any other game
workin' for a livin'
workin' for a livin'

workin' for a livin'
livin' and a-workin'
i'm takin'
what they're givin'
'cause i'm
workin' for a livin'
workin' for a livin'
livin' and a-workin'

i'm takin'
what they're givin'
'cause i'm
workin' for a livin'
workin' for a livin'
livin' and a-workin'
woo
