"Take This Job And Shove It" as written by and David Allan Coe....
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman left and took all the reasons I was working for
You better not try to stand in my way
When I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman left and took all the reasons I was working for
You better not try to stand in my way
When I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

They'll have you in this factory
From now on for fifty years
All this time I see my woman
Drowning in her tears
I see a lot of people who
Gotta have a piece of me
I'd give the shirt right off my back
If I had the nerve to say

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman left and took all the reasons I was working for
You better not try to stand in my way
When I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

The foreman is a regular S.O.B.
The night boss he's a fool
Got brand new skinhead hair cuts
You think he's a fool
One of these days I'll blow my top
And somebody's gonna pay
I'd hate to see the look on his face
When I get the nerve to say

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman left and took all the reasons I was working for
You better not try to stand in my way
When I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here
Ain't working here
Ain't working here no more

    General CommentDavid Allan Coe actually wrote this song before Paycheck got a hit off of it. Coe Actually Preforms the DK's version at his concerts sometimes.
