Working

(I. Hanson / T. Hanson / Z. Hanson)
Hanson version of Summer Time Blues but in this case the theme is almost reversed. I need a break, I can't wait for the weekend. - "Animal Instincts" blog 5/11/17

Six a.m. rolling out of bed
Putting on my pants, fixing my hair
My wallter, watch, pulling out the drive
Got to arrive before the clock strikes nine

Hour after hour, day after day
I'm working so hard so I can get paid
My momma always said dress for success
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday in my Sunday best

All week I've been working
This weekend is working for me

Punching in my time card, talking to myself
Working up my courage, practicing my sell
Talking to the boss about my check
'Cause my payroll's so small gives me a crick in the neck

Twelve p.m. still hard at work
He acts like he's king but he's a white-collar jerk
You gotta kiss the ring if you wanna get ahead
Because they make you pay your taxes even when you're dead

All week I've been working
This weekend is working for me

Eyes on the clock, putting in the time
Three till five I'm just doing pantomime
It's not a felony to try and get a break
You play by the rules and I'll be on the take

I gotta get the money, so I can get the power
'Cause power ain't free they charge by the hour
Working for the weekend so I can unwind
But I'd stay a little longer if they'd pay me overtime

I keep on working, this weekend is working for me
All week I've been working
This weekend is working for me
All week I've been working
This weekend is working for me
All week I've been working
This weekend is working for me
