With the high price of gasoline
I need an ATM machine
To keep the money coming
To keep my motor running
Does a working man stand a fighting chance
Of even coming close to breaking even at the end of the day?
Hear what I say
I've been breaking my back for an honest wage
But quick as I can make it
Somebody wants to take it away

If I could win the lottery
Brother, I can guarantee
Uncle Sam would grab it
Even before I had it
Get my income and them some
Leaving me sitting 'round wondering where the money went
I never even spent
My piece of the pie gets smaller ever day
Quick as I can make it
Somebody wants to take it away

I pay a high price for barely getting by
I'm on thin ice and trying to let it slide
When the money's gone, they're calling on the phone
I tell 'em I got nothing in the world but hell to pay
What else can I say?
Everywhere I turn, there's a hand in my face
Quick as I can make it
Somebody wants to take it away

I pay a high price for barely getting by
I'm on thin ice trying to let it slide
Does a working man stand a fighting chance
Of even coming close to breaking even at the end of the day?
In the USA
I've been breaking my back for an honest wage
Quick as I can make it
Somebody wants to take it away

I've been breaking my back since the break of day
Quick as I can make it
Somebody wants to take it away
