07. Pay Me A Dollar

Jungle Of The Midwest Sea
by Flatfoot 56



 

Pay me a dollar for my sweat and my blood
With callus hands I work the land in the pain and the mud
I take pride in what I do to serve is my own joy
I will work hard for you good sir Iím an all-American boy

I say hey for my lazy work today
Thatís right Iíll be working hard tonight
Say hey I found a better way
Thatís right Iíll be working through tonight

Pay me a dollar for my sweat is my pay
I live to work itís fun I shirk to me thereís no other way
My lifeís the job I wonít be a slob my family time can wait
Listen here my darling dear to die on the job is my fate




Behind the Song:
"This song is a dedication to those who work and toile in America today. It outlines two different outlooks on work and is meant to be an anthem for those who work hard for their families." - Flatfoot 56
