Be yourself, boys
Let's get this show on the road

Well, I'm up every morning by 6:08
Take the Volkswagen bus
Up the interstate

Feel Charlie Manson
Just like [Incomprehensible]
I'm diggin' real hard
For some money to spend

Well, it ain't that bad
If the summer's free
I got my evenings
To cruise the scene, oh yeah

I got a pretty old lady
Who rolls back in the morning
She don't pressure me
About my over time

Got a kickin' black chick
Who meets me in the alley
Sayin' unsnap your jeans, baby
I'll take what I find

I got non-stop shoot 'em up
On a layaway plan
I've got a workman's compensation
I'm a union man

Working at the factory
Gonna get me some of them luxuries
Well, now me and the boys
Machines are making noise
Working at the factory

It works like this

I got one eye on the time clock
I got my other eye on the girl in the hall
I got this rocket, hum
Stuck right here in my pocket
Waitin' for the 5 o'clock whistle to call

I'm the whistle dancer
Of the production line
I got an encour tomorrow
At the very same time

Working at the factory
Gonna get me some of them luxuries
Well, now me and the boys
Machines are making noise
Working at the factory, moola

Working at the factory
Gonna get me some of them luxuries
Well, now me and the boys
Machines are making noise
Working at the factory, moola
