Should've seen the look on the face of the boss of the second shift
When I threw my hard hat at him
And suggested the box where he could stick it
I walked downstairs and told him I was leavin' Bethlehem
Like I'd seen the Saviour, had tears in my eyes
Holdin' my hands up and shoutin' "Amen"

[Chorus]
'Cause there ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do
I spent most of my life a-wrapped up tight
In somebody else's hand-me-down old shoes
Startin' today, I'm someone I'd be proud to know
You might tell me where to go
But there ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do
