"Trying to Make a Living" as written by and Snare/leverty....
Well I woke up this morning, pulled myself out of bed
I wish that I could sleep the day away
Just a day like any other, same old thing, over and over
I'm overworked and underpaid (and it's killing me)

Not even breakin' even, work my fingers to the bone
Barely gettin' by, keeps gettin' harder
I'm slaving on the grindstone and I get no breaks at all
Just trying to keep my head above the water

Can't make ends meet, can't even save a dime
Feels like I spend my life working overtime

[Chorus:]
Tryin' to make a livin', gotta pay the rent
(just) tryin' to make a livin', wonder where my money went
Never seem to get ahead, it's getting' easier to see
(just) tryin' to make a livin' and it's killing me

Times are getting tough seems I never make enough
Just doing what I can to stay alive
And I'd like to take a day off but I can't afford a layoff
Gotta keep this damn job to survive

Can't make ends meet I can't even save a dime
Feels like I spend my life working overtime

[Chorus:]
