The Lyrics

I'm spreadin' the news,
Search want ads each day
Last friday night they laid me off..
No Work, No Work
Behind with bill dues,
No green left to pay
It's my last check, they paid me off..
No Work, No Work

Each day I wake up
In the realm of the unemployed
And know I'm all out of dough,
Self esteem, low...

Few options to choose,
Pound pavement, and pray
Big dream balloons can't stay aloft
Without No Work..
The mortgage man came by
Now, homeless guy, am I
No where to go,
No Work, No Work

Each morning wake up
In the shade of a cardboard box
Old shoes are wearin' away
Dumpster buffet...

Most nights I steal booze
To get through the day
Rich folks relaxed, out playin' golf..
Ignore this dork...
Their life is high and dry
Little they care if I
Curl up and die,
No Work...No Work!
