Coffee cup
Watching the hands of the clock
Holding me, locked up
Waiting for the sun to rise

Red light
Caught between day and night
Can someone help me with this fight
Against the Monday morning blues

I'm tired of walking in these shoes

Running in a rat race
Always in the right place, at the wrong time
Working for the man

Living for the weekends
Struggling in quicksand, this is alright
Working for the man

It's not working out for me
Is it working out for you?
Working for the man

Deadlines
Living in boardroom time
Not enough hours to dream these dreams of mine
They wont even let you try

Hard life
But I aint living at all
I find myself trapped behind these four walls
Working the Monday morning blues

I'm tired of walking in these shoes

Running in a rat race
Always in the right place, at the wrong time
Working for the man

Living for the weekends
Struggling in quicksand, this is alright
Working for the man

It's not working out for me
Is it working out for you?
Working for the man

Running in a rat race
Always in the right place, at the wrong time
Working for the man

Living for the weekends
Struggling in quicksand, this is alright
Working for the man

It's not working out for me
Is it working out for you?
Working for the man (x3)

Is it working out for you?
Working for the man

Hard life
But I aint living at all

Red light
Caught between day and night

Working for the man
