The Lyrics

I'm having a bad day.....
You show up
Just for the pay
The praise goes to somebody else
You got no say
And so it blows
For each working guy
This thing called "job"
Is gonna make you cry
So many chiefs
And they've all been finks
One thing for sure

Works stinks, yeah yeah
Work stinks, bleah, bleah
Work stinks, nyahh nyahh
Work stinks, wah, wah

Day by day and year by year
Works gonna kill you, yes it will
And poke your rear
You'll be a slave
Till comes the grave
It's such a bore
I don't want any thirty-five year ring
And all I can say is

Works stinks, yeah yeah
Work stinks, bleah, bleah
Work stinks, nyahh nyahh
Work stinks, wah, wah

I've dug the trenches
I've been through drinks
But children need the mall
Work stinks

Works stinks, yeah yeah
Work stinks, bleah, bleah
Work stinks, nyahh nyahh
Work stinks, wah, wah

For a long time I thought this was an 80s song, but I guess it was recorded in '79 or something. Anyway, nice job. 5,5,5.
