This back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
Yes, it's keeping me alive doin' nine to five
Pretty soon I'll be leavin'
But I know it's gonna be all right
We got some money to spend tonight
Pick me up at the station
Have a meal and a shower and a change of clothes
But I can take the strain
Find a way to burn it as quickly as I earn it
Yes, it's back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
Seven long years for the same corporation
And tonight when I'm leavin' I'll be just breakin' even

We got some money to spend tonight
Oh, I don't wanna stand here and sound accusin'
If I'm gonna lose it I might as well be doin' it right
Pick me up at the station
Have a meal and a shower and a change of clothes
But I can take the strain
Find a way to burn it as quickly as I earn it
Yes, it's back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
Yes, it's keepin' me alive doin' nine to five
And tonight when I'm leavin' I'll be just breakin' even
Come on, babe, and take me away
Come on, babe, take me away
