my lyricsbox
Take this job and shove it
I aint workin here no more
My woman done left and took all of the reasons i was working for
You better not try to stand in my way
when i walk out the door
Take this job and shove it
i aint workin here no more

I been working in this factory
pretty close to 15 years
Ive left some of my best friends women
Standing in a pool of tears

Ive seen a lot of kinfolks dying
i had a lot of bills to pay
Lord, id give the shirt right offin my back
if i had the nerve to say:

Repeat chorus

The foreman is a regular s.o.b. and the night boss, hes a fool
He got himself a brand new flattop haircut
Lord, he really thinks thats cool
One of these days im gonna blow my top
And theres gonna be hell to pay
I cant wait to see their faces when i get the nerve to say

Repeat chorus

Take this job and shove it . . .
