"Take This Job And Shove It" as written by and David Allan Coe....
Take this job and shove it.
I ain't workin here no more.
Women done left, took all the reason
I was workin for.

You better not try to stand in my way,
Cause' I'm a' walkin out the door.
Take this job and shove it.
I ain't workin here no more.

I've been workin
In this factory
By now for fifteen years.
All this time I've watched my woman
Drownin in a pool of tears.

And I've seen a lot of good folk die
Had a lot of bills to pay.
I'd give the shirt right off of my back
If I had the guts to say

Take this job and shove it.
I ain't workin here no more.
Women done left, took all the reason
I was workin for.

You better not try to stand in my way,
Cause' I'm a' walkin out the door.
Take this job and shove it.
I ain't workin here no more.

Well that foreman he's a regular dog.
Lyin boss, he's a fool.
Got a brand new flattop hair cut
Lord he thinks he's cool.
One of these days I'm gonna blow my top
And that sucker, he's gonna pay.
Lord I can't wait to see their faces when i get the nerve to say

Take this job and shove it.
I ain't workin here no more.
Women done left, took all the reason
I was workin for.

You better not try to stand in my way,
Cause' I'm a' walkin out the door.
Take this job and shove it.
I ain't workin here no more.

Take this job and shove it.
