work all day
To pay the rent.
Before the money’s earned,
It’s all been allocated.
I got nothing on my plate,
But I wish that I were fat.
Nine more gallons,
And I’ll have me a hat.

Work all night
I’m always tired.
Hope my boss
Doesn’t get me laid off.
It’s hard to pull an empty load
Even if you’re stuck
Seventeen more wheels,
And I’ll have me a truck.

Two more times a lady
Three more hundred blows
Four more easy pieces
Five more days on the road.
Seven more days a week now,
Eight more lives a cat,
Nine more gallons,
And I’ll have me a hat.

Workin’ weekends
To pay the bills.
Wish I lived someplace, like
With Beverly Sills.
I’d love to have her autograph,
Right here on these cheques.
Fifty-one more cards,
And I’ll be playin’ with a full deck.


Two more times a lady,
Three more hundred blows,
Four more easy pieces,
Five more days on the road.
Seven more days a week now,
Eight more lives a cat,
Nine more gallons,
And I’ll have me a hat.
