The Lyrics

Alabama's tribute to America's working class is reworked to be a tribute to Indiana's working class in this parody.
There are people in this great state,
Who work hard every day,
They might not have the highest salaries...

But all of their good efforts,
Are worth more than their pay,
They help Indiana constantly...

Hello, Gary, cocaine drug lord,
Let me thank you for that rock,
You work a 40 hour week for a living...
Just to end up in another cell block.

Hello, Leb'non, fat ass plumber,
Let me thank you for that plunge,
You work a 40 hour week for a living...
Cuz of what you can expunge.

This is for the ones down in Columbus,
In Mishawaka too,
The ones over in Fort Wayne,
Farmers in Waterloo...
For the workers here in Naptown,
For the ones in Anderson,
For everyone who works in Terre Haute...

You can see them every mornin,
Drivin up I-65,
Goin to work,
Like everyone else around,
Workin together,
To fix that Subaru,
Kokomo, this song's for you...

Hello, Rising Sun, casino boat worker,
Let me thank you for that hand,
You work a 40 hour week for a living,
Watchin people lose 20 grand.

Hello, Evansville's Perkins' waitress,
Let me thank you for my meal,
You work a 40 hour week for a living,
Servin food that just don't look real...

This is for the ones who live in Richmond,
The ones down in Vincennes,
The ones who work in Valpo,
Emptyin' trash bins...
Or in Muncie, in Bloomington,
Prison warden in Plainfield,
For everyone who works in Lafayette...
A machine hasn't taken their jobs... yet...

Hello, Indiana!
Thank you for your time..
