A capitalist work ethic is what you say
An honest day's work for an honest day's pay
The American way to get my slice of the pie
But I'm busting my ass and I'm barely getting by

(chorus)
Minimum wage, minimum wage, minimum wage slavery

I'm forced to work in a service economy
There's no other choice in this McDonaldized society
When I quit this job that I've grown to detest
The next one I get will be just like the last

When I punch the clock you're just buying my time
You think you own me but I'll always be mine
You want me to help make your profits rise
Do you think I give a fuck for $4.75?
