Workin’ For The Man
Verse/Chorus
Chorus:
Workin’ for the man
Yes, I’m workin’ for the man
I do the best I can
When I’m workin’ for the man
It doesn’t matter how I try
I can never satisfy
So I better cash in all my chips
Before I get the can
 
Verse 1:
Everyday I do his chores, workin’ for the man
Every time I turn my head, he changes the game plan
I gotta lose this job and end financial pain
Before I waste my life away and end up more insane
 
Chorus: (as above)
Workin’ for the man
Yes, I’m workin’ for the man
I do the best I can
When I’m workin’ for the man
It doesn’t matter how I try
I can never satisfy
So I better cash in all my chips
Before I get the can
 
Verse 2:
Every way I do my tasks, workin’ for the man
Every time I need more dough, he simply kicks the can
I gotta get a life and tell him where to go
Before I burn my final bridge with nothing left to show
 
Chorus: (as above)
Workin’ for the man
Yes, I’m workin’ for the man
I do the best I can
When I’m workin’ for the man
It doesn’t matter how I try
I can never satisfy
So I better cash in all my chips
Before I get the can
 
Verse 3:
Every day I try to stop workin’ for the man, but
Everywhere I seek a job there’s someone with a scam
I gotta find a way to ditch this senseless scene
Before he hires someone new and leaves me with no green
 
Chorus: (as above)
Workin’ for the man
Yes, I’m workin’ for the man
I do the best I can
When I’m workin’ for the man
It doesn’t matter how I try
I can never satisfy
So I better cash in all my chips
Before I get the can

Coda:
District boss came looking ‘round
Wasn’t pleased with what’s goin’ down
Told my boss to get lost
And made me the new boss
