Workin' this job is a kick in the pants
Workin' this job is like a knife in the back
It ain't gettin' me further than the dump I live in
It ain't gettin' me further than the next paycheck

Workin' this job is like lightin' two fuses
Workin' this job is runnin' out of excuses
It's like a dead-end when a road map is useless
Until I'm dead and there's nothin' to show for my uses

Nobody told me it'd be easy
Or for that matter it'd be so hard
But it's the livin' and the learnin'
It makes the difference, it makes it all worthwhile
Makes it all worthwhile

Workin' this job, there's nothin' left but to hate it
I won't get as far as my daddy made it
It ain't gettin' me farther for all my strivin'
In the dead-end I live on or the piece of shit I'm drivin'

Nobody told me it'd be easy
Or for that matter it'd be so hard
But it's the livin' and the learnin'
It makes the difference, it makes it all worthwhile
Makes it all worthwhile

Sometimes I dream that I had aimed my life in different ways
But there was nothin' to show me a way to get me outta this place
So I just did what my daddy did before me
Only to find the only door I found was closed to me

Workin' this job, I thought it sucked when I had it
Now it is gone and I'm learnin' what that is
I'm tryin' to hang on to the worst of places
But a family can't live on these fast food wages

Nobody told me it'd be easy
Or for that matter it'd be so hard
But it's the livin' and the learnin'
It makes the difference, it makes it all worthwhile
Makes it all worthwhile

Workin' this job
Workin' this job
Workin' this job
