The Lyrics

Got Work? Who Does? ;-D Link to Let's Work music video - http://youtu.be/NoGofvVhKTo - I know that the video got terrible reviews, but if you don't like the video, don't pay any attention to it, just listen to the music! :-)
They’re shutting down all your jobs
So they won’t owe you
You’re looking like a slob
And they don’t know you

Don’t waste your precious time
By reading classifieds
Just pick yourself up
And work your way down

[Chorus 1]
Less work, not proud
Plan small, join the crowd
Land where no one, is free
Less work, more poverty

(Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na)
Work your way down

[Chorus 2]
Less work, speak loud
Silver, lines no clouds
Man and woman, may plea
Less work, more robberies

You are thrown out on your butt
And you are needy
You’re starting to go nuts
Don’t you look sleazy

Social Security
It can’t make you wealthy
So don’t hold your breath

The boss won’t care for you
There is no share for you
They’ll fill your chair for you
If you’re laid off

Ain’t no more checks for you
They’ll be a jerk for you
There’ll be no work for you
If you’re laid off

Come on, come on

[Chorus 3]
Less work, not proud
The news, spells it out
Less work, few eat
Homeless, are on the street
Land where nothing, is free
Less work, dead industry

[Chorus 4]
Less work, speak loud
Stand down, you’ll be cowed
Your whole Nation, hear me!

Less work!
Less work!
Get down with the dirt, less work
Get down with the dirt, less work
Get down with the dirt
You’ll lose your shirt
Get down with the dirt
There’s less work, less work
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah [Fade out….]

It might be because of all the information contained in the political parodies that you do, is rubbing off on me Rob! ;-D
