Drinking Class

Album: I Don't Dance (2014)
Charted: 53
  • We're up when the rooster crows
    Clock in when the whistle blows
    Eight hours ticking slow
    And then tomorrow we'll do it all over again

    I'm a member of a blue collar crowd
    They can never, nah they can't keep us down
    If you gotta, gotta label me, label me proud

    I belong to the drinking class
    Monday through Friday, man we bust our backs
    If you're one of us, raise your glass
    I belong to the drinking class

    We laugh, we cry, we love
    Go hard when the going's tough
    Push back, come push and shove
    Knock us down, we'll get back up again and again

    I'm a member of a good timing crowd
    We get rowdy, we get wild and loud
    If you gotta, gotta label me, label me proud

    I belong to the drinking class
    Monday through Friday, man we bust our backs
    If you're one of us, raise your glass
    I belong to the drinking class

    We all know why we're here
    A little fun, a little music, a little whiskey, a little beer
    We're gonna shake off those long week blues
    Ladies, break out your dancing shoes
    It don't matter what night it is, it's Friday
    It's Saturday and Sunday
    I just want to hear you say
    I just want to hear you sing it
    Y'all sing it with me

    We belong to the drinking class
    Monday through Friday, man we bust our backs
    If you're one of us, raise your glass
    We belong to the drinking class

    Yeah, we belong to the drinking class
    Monday through Friday, man we bust our backs
    And if you're one of us, raise your glass
    We belong to the drinking class Writer/s: DAVID R FRASIER, ED HILL, JOSH KEAR

  • Efrain from California EVERYTIME I hear this song I think the lyrics were changed. When he says "...Monday through Friday we bust our BACKS..." I keep hearing "bust our ASS" because it rhymes with "working class" and "glass" . Does anyone else feel that too? Don't mean to upset anyone using the A-word.
