Pay me a dollar for my sweat and my blood
With callus hands I work the land in the pain and the mud
I take pride in what I do to serve is my own joy
I will work hard for you good sir I’m an all-American boy

I say hey for my lazy work today
That’s right I’ll be working hard tonight
Say hey I found a better way
That’s right I’ll be working through tonight

Pay me a dollar for my sweat is my pay
I live to work it’s fun I shirk to me there’s no other way
My life’s the job I won’t be a slob my family time can wait
Listen here my darling dear to die on the job is my fate.
