Another Work Song

lyrics

Another fourteen hours of my life in the cold, wind and rain
On my feet all day until both my feet ache, my whole body aches
An hour in the evening that I call my own before I crash out in bed with the alarm clock set and it quickly tells me that I've got to get
up and to do it all over again
And they're wearing me out
Christ, they're wearing us all out
and they're wearing me out
and it's wearing on you

Another fourteen hours of my life in the baking hot sun
My face is burnt, my hands are black and it's lost any notion of fun
Driving back to the flat, tired as hell with headlight coronas trying to tell me that I could die any one of these nights but I'll do it all over again
And they're wearing me out
Christ, they're wearing us all out
and they're wearing me out
and it's wearing on you

Oh, the life that I lead
is so close to breaking me
but I remember the other extreme ---
always famine or feast

And it's wearing me out
Christ, it's wearing us both out
and it's wearing me out
and it’s wearing on you
