The Lyrics

We can work if we want to
We can bring our lunch along
We are on construction
And when you're on construction
Well, something can go wrong

Say, we can work if we want to
We can even work overtime
And we can get more pay
If we just work late
Get caught up if we get behind

And we can work
(Be Safe!)

We can work if we want to
But we cannot mess around
Or we'll be in real deep
From our hats to our feet
They don't take that in this town

Say, we can snack if we want to
But don't act like a fool
'Cause actin' like a jerk
Could really get you hurt
And lemme tell you something, that ain't cool

Say, be real safe, be real safe
Everybody's being cautious
Take some breaks, take some breaks
Or the heat might make you nauseous
We can work, we can work
Everybody get out your tools
We can work, we can work
Everybody follow the rules
And wear a safety hat
Wear a safety hat
It's a safety hat
Oh, a safety hat

We can work if we want to
And we aren't really afraid
But there's one thing that we fear
It happens every year
A hatless man is just not safe

Say, we can work if we want to
And a beam could smash you flat
Insurance isn't good
Your family needs the food
So be thankful for your safety hat
