Don't want to work away
Doin' just what they all say
"Work hard boy and you'll find
One day you'll have a job like mine"

'Cause I know for sure
Nobody should be that poor
To say yes or sink low
Because you happen to say so
Say so, you say so

I don't want to work away
Doing just what they all say
"Work hard boy and you'll find
One day you'll have a job like mine
Job like mine, a job like mine"

"Be wise, look ahead
Use your eyes", he said
"Be straight, think right
But I might die tonight"

ISLAM, YUSUF
