I bought a scooter and I rented a shackOut in the sun, by the railroad trackI got a job and I’m a-breakin’ my backWorkin’ and workin’ for the big paybackI keep a puttin’ and a puttin’ outI keep a sweatin’ like a hog and allI work so long that I’m a losin’ trackI work so long that I’m a losin’ trackWaitin’, waitin’ on the big paybackWell, it’s a wham, bam, thank you ma’am, God damn, ring out samI took on that train rumblin’ down this trackThey got your neck in the noose, you’re draggin’ long in backChasin’ and chasin’ the big paybackOh what my foreman does well I don’t knowHe just throws me a shovel and yells go, bobby, goOh well-a all day long he’s just a busy wise crackWhile I’m sweatin’ and sweatin’ the big paybackWell, it’s a wham, bam, thank you ma’am, God damn, ring out samI took on that train rumblin’ down the trackThey got your neck in the noose, your hands are tied up in backAnd you’re a-workin’ and workin’ for the big paybackI quit that job, and mister I ain’t goin’ backGot me a knife and she’s a long and badI’ll tell you how I make the peace with that manDown in the alley of the big paybackI go a wham, bam, thank you ma’am, God damn, c’mon manYou’re a goin’ to that train rumblin’ down this trackI got your neck in the noose and I don’t give a damn, jackI’m on that long lost highway of the big paybackI’m on that long lost highway of the big paybackI’m on that long lost highway of the big payback
