R.A. The Rugged Man

R.A. The Rugged Man - On The Block

This back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'

Two more hours to go

Yes, it's keeping me alive doin' nine to five

And I ain't got nothin to show

Pretty soon I'll be leavin'

With the wages I'm receivin'

But I know it's gonna be all right

Come on, babe, and take me away

We got some money to spend tonight

Pick me up at the station

Meet me at the train

Have a meal and a shower and a change of clothes

I can't afford a vacation

But I can take the strain

Long as I can be with you

Find a way to burn it as quickly as I earn it

Yes, it's back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'

Two more hours to go

Seven long years for the same corporation

And I ain't got nothin' to show

And tonight when I'm leavin' I'll be just breakin' even

But I know it's gonna be all right

I shake off my blues when you put on your shoes

We got some money to spend tonight

Oh, I don't wanna stand here and sound accusin'

Everybody does their share of losin'

If I'm gonna lose it I might as well be doin' it right

Pick me up at the station

Meet me at the train

Have a meal and a shower and a change of clothes

I can't afford a vacation

But I can take the strain

Long as I can be with you

Find a way to burn it as quickly as I earn it

Yes, it's back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'

Two more hours to go

Yes, it's keepin' me alive doin' nine to five

And I ain't got nothin' to show

And tonight when I'm leavin' I'll be just breakin' even

But I know it's gonna be all right

Come on, babe, and take me away

We got some money to spend tonight

Come on, babe, take me away

We got some money to spend tonight
