When you never see your family
Cause you work late all the time
But the man still takes your money
So your life ain't worth a dime

And you know it's not right
And you can't sleep at night
Cause you're worried about your plan
Who'd be the working man?

When you vote for hope and freedom
And you try to change the mold
You'll find you just can't make no difference
A new face bu the same old soul

And you can't take no more
What are you waiting for?
Now it's time to make a stand
And fight for the working man

Fight for the working man

Take a look at my face, can't you see I'm falling?
Would you walk right by and let me down?
There's a world outside, can you hear it calling?
There's so much more if you look around

So you just can't ignore
The whole world any more
You gotta help me out, help me out, help me out

Cause it's all for nothing
When they'll lie to you to keep you on your knees
Take a change on something
Cause everyone needs something to believe

[Guitar solo]

So what does it all come down to?
What is it you'll have left?
You can't sail your boat forever
You can't sell your final breath

So when everything's gone
And you can't carry on
Like you have all along
And you can't take no more
What's left to fight for?
Then it's time to make your stand
And fight for the working man

Fight for the working man

You gotta keep on fighting
Keep on fighting
Keeping on fighting

You gotta keep on keeping on

Cause I'm a working man too
