A-huh-huh (a-um)
A-huh-huh (a-um)

I got nineteen kids at home gotta eat
Eighteen of 'em need shoes on their feet
Boss man can't you see?
All nineteen kids I've gotta feed

Ooh-oooh-ho-oh
Ooh-hoooh-oh

Early this mo'nin landlord knock on do's
Don't pay the rent boy you gotta go
Three days, three months in arrears
Five days notice you move away from here

(Piano & chorus)

Worked all day any overtime
Nineteen kids drive me outta my mind

Ooh-hoho-oh-oh
Ooh-hoho-ho-oh

Place I used to work they went on a strike
No use tryin' they'll never take me back
A-huh-huh (a-um)

(A-huh-huh) a-huh-huh, move (hey) (a-um) (hey)
Never gonna move (hey) (a-um) (hey)
(A-huh-huh) I gotta move (a-um)
Fades-
(A-huh-huh) uh-huh-huh.
