lyrics

(Words/music by P.Mark)

Five long days a week I work at one job or another
Saturday and Sunday I spend looking for another
Low pay, long hours
The story's the same all over this town
Listen here - One job's worse than the next

It takes two days of work to pay off one day of rent
When a man hits 30 he's 50 years in debt
Low pay, long hours
You get in so deep you can never climb out
I'm telling you people - One job's worse than the next

I don't mind working if I'm working with my mind
But as soon as you get to thinking, man you' re overqualified
Low pay, long hours
They'll show the door if you figure it all out
Tell the truth - One job's worse than the next

Five long days a week I work at one job or the other
40 hours of slaving and I can't stand another
Low pay, long hours
I try looking up but work keeps bringing me down
Spread the word - One job's worse than the next
