The Lyrics

In the first "Less Work" there were some mistakes in words, pacing, and the ending was far too short, and parts of it were omitted from the original song's album version. So in this version, I've corrected those mistakes. Hope to do as good this time too! :-)
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, Na, Na, Na, Na,
Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,
Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, 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
Men and women, 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
When 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
When you’re laid off

Come on, come on

[Chorus 3]
Less work, no doubt
The news, spells it out
Less work, few eat
Homeless, are on the street
Land where nothing, is free
Less work, dead industries

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

Less work!

Less work
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Huh!
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Less work
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Huh!
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Aah!
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Get down,
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Get down,
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Get down,
(Na,)
Get down with the dirt there’s Less work
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Get down with the dirt there’s Less work
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Get up,
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Ain’t free
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Aah!
More poverty
(Ah,)
Less work,
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Get down with the dirt,
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
There’s Less Work
Get down with the dirt,
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
You’ll lose your shirt
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Get down with the dirt
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
There’s Less work, Less work
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
(Na,)
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
(Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,)
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah…. [Fade Out….]

As usual- well done WCJ, 555!!! PERFECT discription of the Obama Administration 3 years into term. Promises never kept. Recession, Recovery... hmm... more like wrecked economy!!! WCJ, go Red buddy!!!

Rob: What do you mean by "Go Red?"
Wild Child JIN - June 30, 2011 - Report this comment
Nice going Totem, for your nice little remark, I must say, that I did not knock the recovery in my song, but I did knock you!
Politician - June 30, 2011 - Report this comment
I'm sure in this case what JIN means by "knock" is that he reported you.
WCJ - June 30, 2011 - Report this comment
If it's something that Rob said, or something you said about him, then that's between you and him Totem, but don't bash my songs just because of someone else's comments!

Also very relevant to how the Con-Dems ruined the UK workforce.
Wild Child JIN - July 01, 2011 - Report this comment
Just to clear it up with everybody, this song was not about any recovery, phony or otherwise, it was about the recession we are currently in. ;-)
Rob Arndt - July 01, 2011 - Report this comment
WCJ, I must have missed the Totem comment b/c nothing is here now!!! Cannot say anything about it except that I mention Recovery in my first reply, so the guy was probably attacking ME and not YOU. Also, in my original comment about "Go Red!"... that simply means Republican (as in Red State). Blue represents the Democrats (as in Blue State). Although I am Red, I live in a Blue State (California)!!!

Even though I'll most likely never vote again, the time in which I did, I was a Republican. :-)
