I was born in sixty-three Got a little job in the factory I don't know much about Kennedy I was too busy working in the factory
We got a kid that's two, we got another one due We get by the best we can do The factory's got a good medical plan And, cousin, I'm a union man Saying, Yes sir, no sir, yes sir, no sir, yes sir, no sir, work !
I was born in Mechanicsburg My daddy worked for Pontiac 'til he got hurt Now he's on disability And I got his old job in the factory Saying, Yes sir, no sir, yes sir, no sir, yes sir, no sir, work !
Early in the morning I feel a chill The factory whistle blows loud and shrill I'd kill my wife or she'd kill me But we gotta go to work in the factory Six days a week at the factory Up early in the morning at the factory
I've been working in the factory Johnny, I've been working in the factory Kickin' asbestos in the factory Punchin' out Chryslers in the factory Breathin' that plastic in the factory Makin' polyvinyl chloride in the factory
