Lyrics

WORKING MAN – GLENN REID

Verse 1
YOU CAN GO ON A DESIGN IT
MAKE YOUR DRAWINGS AND REFINE IT
CALCULATE AND PLAN TILL YOU’RE BLUE IN THE FACE
YOU CAN SKETCH THE THING AND MOLD IT
YOU MAY ALREADY HAVE SOLD IT
BUT THERE’S ONE THING YOU STILL NEED IN EVERY CASE

Chorus
IT’S GONNA TAKE A WORKING MAN
A GOOD STRONG BACK AND A GENTLE HAND
WHO WILL BE THERE EVERY DAY FOR THE WAGES THAT YOU PAY
TAKE YOUR PROFITS TO THE BANK
JUST REMEMBER WHO TO THANK
AND THAT YOU’VE GOT NOTHING BUT A PLAN
IF YOU AIN’T GOT A WORKING MAN

Verse 2
YOU CAN FIND SOMEONE WITH MONEY
AND YOUR FUTURE MAY LOOK SUNNY
AND YOU MAY THINK THAT YOU HAVE IT ALL MAPPED OUT
BUT BEFORE THE CELEBRATION
FOR YOUR SHINY NEW CREATION
DON’T FORGET THERE’S ONE THING YOU CAN’T DO WITHOUT

Repeat Chorus Lead Break (on verse)

Refrain
IF YOU ARE SAILIN’ STORMY WEATHER
YOU’LL FIND WERE IN THIS THING TOGETHER
AS ME AND MINE GO SO GO YOU AND YOURS

Verse 3
YOU CAN LOCK UP ALL YOUR PATENTS
AND YOUR ASSETS MAY ALL FATTEN
AND IT MAY SEEM THAT THERE’S NO WAY TO GO WRONG
YOUR IDEA MAY SEEM CLEAR AN’
YOU MAY THINK THAT YOU ARE STEERIN’
BUT YOU BETTER PAY ATTENTION TO THIS SONG

Repeat Chorus
