For years I've been bustin' my rear
To make a livin' but it ain't made
For years I've been tryin' to pay off my bills
But they ain't paid

Oh, every dime I make, every soul I know
The higher up I reach, the further down I go
And this old broken back of mine is all I've got to show
And anyway

A working man can't get nowhere today
Lord, a working man can't get nowhere today
A working man ain't go no time to play
Today I work my [Incomprehensible] leave it lay
A working man can't get nowhere today

I pay my income tax and the government gives back
What I got coming, lord, it ain't much
I pay my child support 'cause I'm a law abiding soul
And an easy touch [Incomprehensible] starve myself to death

Kinda keep my family fit, I keep my budget tight
Kinda get myself ahead
But I'd still be deep in debt
The day that I fall dead, that's why I say

Lord, a working man can't get nowhere today
A working man can't get nowhere today
A working man ain't go no time to play
Tonight I work my [Incomprehensible] leave it lay
A working man can't get nowhere today
A working man can't get nowhere today
