I dedicate this song to the workin' man
Of work and toil and sweat
Tryin' to get more out of him

In this shop with Oney standin' over me
I'll check in all my gear and I'll retire
The superintendent just dropped by
Then he said I'd never a made it

And woke up in the mornin' feelin' tired
How he tried to get me fired
With his folded hands behind him
Where he'd rant and rave like I committed murder

Like I've seen 'em do when any man retires
From now on I'm free to do what I desire
He'll present me with that little old gold watch
But there's one thing he's not countin' on

Oney's just been standin' 'round a gettin' soft
I'll make up for every good night's sleep I've lost
When I'm gone I'll be remembered
With a right hand full of knuckles

Hey, Oney!
