Hey now you better listen to me everyone of you We got a lotta, lotta, lotta, lotta work to do Forget about your woman and that water can Today were working for the man
Well pick up your feet We've got a deadline to meet I'm gonna see you make it on time Don't relax I want elbows and backs I want to see everybody from behind
'Cause your working for the man working for the man You gotta make him a hand when you're working for the man
Oh well I'm pickin' 'em up and I'm laying 'em down I believe he's gonna work me into the ground I pull to the left, I heave to the right I want to kill him but it wouldn't be right
'Cause I'm working for the man, working for the man Gotta make him a hand when you're working for the man
Well the boss man's daughter sneaks me water Every time her daddy's down the line She says meet me tonight love a me right And everything is gonna be fine So I slave all day without much pay 'Cause I'm just biding my time 'Cause the company and the daughter, you see They're both gonna be all mine
Yah I'm gonna be the man, gonna be the man Gotta make him a hand if I'm gonna be the man
Working for the man, working for the man Gonna be the man, gonna be the man Gotta make him a hand working for the man.
