Take this job and shove it
I aint working here no more
I will not get all the pieces
Ive been working for
Paper cups, minimum wage
Just walk on out the door
Take this job and shove it
I aint working here no more

Take this job and shove it
I aint working here no more
I will not get all the pieces
Ive been working for
Paper cups, minimum wage
Just walk on out the door
Take this job and shove it
I aint working here no more

Theyll have you in this factory
From now on for fifty years
All this time, I see my woman
Drowning in her tears
I see a lot of people who
Got to have a piece of me
Id give the shirt right off my back
If I had the nerve to say

Take this job and shove it
I aint working here no more
I will not get all the pieces
Ive been working for
Paper cups, minimum wage
Just walk on out the door
Take this job and shove it
I aint working here no more

Lets all go use our sick leave up
And then well shoot some pool
Got brand new skinhead hair cuts
You think hes a fool
One of these days, Ill blow my top
Or somebodys gonna pay
Id hate to see the process
As you enter the factory and say

Take this job and shove it
I aint working here no more
I wont let that shit bother me
That Ive been working for
Paper cups, minimum wage
Just walk on out the door
Take this job and shove it
I aint working here no more

Take this job and shove it
I aint working here
Aint working here
Aint working here no more
