Take This Job And Shove It    (1977)

Take this job and shove it I ain't workin' here no more
My woman done left and took all the reason I was working for
Ya better not try and stand in my way
Cause I'm walkin', out the door
Take this job and shove it I ain't working here no more

Well, I been working in this factory for now on fifteen years
All this time, I watched my woman drownin' in a pool of tears
And I've seen a lot of good folks die who had a lot of bills to pay
I'd give the shirt right off of my back if I had the guts to say...

Take this job and shove it I ain't workin' here no more
My woman done left and took all the reason I was working for
Ya better not try and stand in my way
Cause I'm walkin', out the door
Take this job and shove it I ain't working here no more

The foreman, he's a regular dog
The line boss, he's a fool
Got a brand new flat top haircut
Lord, he thinks he's cool
One of these days I'm gonna blow my top
And that sucker, he's gonna pay
I can't wait to see their faces
When I get the nerve to say...

Take this job and shove it I ain't workin' here no more
My woman done left and took all the reason I was working for
Ya better not try and stand in my way
Cause I'm walkin', out the door
Take this job and shove it I ain't working here no more

Take this job and shove it
