Facing the world ain't easy
When there isn't anything going
Standing at the corner waiting
Watching time go by

Will I go to work today
Or shall I bide my time

'Cause when I see that union man
Walking down the street
He's the man who decides
If I live or I die, if I starve or I eat

Then he walks up to me
And the sun begins to shine
Then he walks right past and I know
That I've got to get back in the line

Now I think of what my mama told me
She always said that it would never ever work out
But all I want to do is make some money
And bring you home some wine

But I don't ever want you to see me
Standing in that line

'Cause that union man's
Got such a hold over me
He's the man who decides
If I live or I die, if I starve or I eat

Then he walks up to me
And the sun begins to shine
Then he walks right past and I know
That I've got to get back in the line

Get back, get back
Get right back in the line

DAVIES, RAYMOND DOUGLAS
