I'll quit my job the day I die
I'll quit my job the day I die
I break my back and never cry
I break my back and never cry
I'm losing all my hair, losing all my hair
I'm losing all my hair because a man provides
I'm standing on a chair, standing on a chair
I'm standing on a chair because I earn my life

I earn my life, I earn my life
I learned it from my father and tell it to my wife
Jesus Christ, don't tell me not to hurry
I wouldn't be so worried if I wasn't always right

While you're asleep I'm terrified
While you're asleep I'm terrified
I see the end before my eyes
I see the end before my eyes
A marker on a grave, marker on a grave
Marker on a grave and I know I'm the one who died
And underneath the name, underneath the name
Underneath my name it says, "He Earned His Life"

I earn my life, I earn my life
I learned it from my father my father never lied
Jesus Christ, better learn how to forage
Utilities and mortgage are all that will survive

I wish my life was on a graph
So I knew how much left I have to earn tonight
It burns too bright
I think about my self a lot 'cause it's the only one I've got
I've earned this life
What have I done to earn this life?

I earn my life, I earn my life
I learned it from my father and tell it to my wife
Jesus Christ, don't tell me not to hurry
I wouldn't be so worried if I wasn't always right
'Cause I earn my life, I earn my life
I learned it from my father and my father never lied
Jesus Christ, we better learn how to forage
Utilities and mortgage are all that will survive
Utilities and mortgage are all that will survive
