Big boss man
Can't you hear me when I call?
Big boss man
Can't you hear me when I call?
You ain't so big
You just tall that's just about all

You got me working boss man
A workin' around the clock
I want a little drink of whiskey
You sure won't let me stop

Big boss man
Can't you hear me when I call?
You ain't so big
You just tall that's just about all

I'm gonna get me a boss man
One gonna treat me right
I work hard in the daytime
Sure get stoned at night

Big boss man
Can't you hear me when I call?
You ain't so big
You just tall, that's just about all

AL SMITH, LUTHER DIXON
