I was diggin' in the yard today
When a letter came from Southampton Way
Said, "Keep on working, keep on working"

I must admit I was a bit in the red
But if you never have pleasure
Then you could be dead
Keep on working, keep on working
Keep on working, keep on working

But there's one thing they can't take away
Hear the sea sing, to see a smilin' face
I think we're okay though we all could be mad
Well, that's what they say, we just can't all be bad

I got somethin' now to think about
I'll work all day but not to pay it out
Keep on working, keep on working

Don't care if they say we are a dyin' race
I'd rather be here than any other place
Keep on working, keep on working
Keep on working, keep on working

And there's another whirl they can't ever touch
Just need a boy and girl and it don't cost you much
And if your luck is in, you might have kids at play
To make you laugh and sing when you're old and gray

Keep on working, keep on working
Keep on working, keep on working

I was diggin' in the yard today
When a letter came from Southampton Way
Said, "Keep on working, keep on working"

I've got to admit I was a bit in the red
But if you never have pleasure
Then you might as well be dead
Keep on working, keep on working
Keep on working, keep on working

And there's another whirl they can't ever touch
Just need a boy and girl and it don't cost you much
And if your luck is in, you might have kids at play
They'll make you laugh and sing when you're old and gray

Keep on working, keep on working
Keep on working, keep on working
Keep on working, keep on working
Keep on working, keep on working

Keep on working, keep on working
Keep on working, keep on working
Keep on working, keep on working
Keep on working, work!
