  • Well I'm a go-to-bed-early, turn-the-alarm-clock-on
    I'm a coffee-black-buzzing at the crack of dawn
    I'm a walking-out-whistling-my-working-song
    I'm a pick-it-up, pack-it-up, back-it-up, gone

    Yeah I work a-work a-work like a dog all day
    And then I take all I can take to get my take-home pay
    I give it all I got until I give it away
    But come Friday, high day, kiss-my-ass-goodbye day

    I got a whole lotta quit in me
    A lotta don't-give-a-shit in me
    The clock's about to hit 4:20
    And I'll be smoking in a red-hot minute
    Forty hours in a jailhouse
    I need a cold beer bailout
    I ain't got another shift in me
    I got a whole lotta quit in me

    Well I'm a-calling up my buddies, get the four-one-one
    We (?) pool-shooting son-of-a-guns
    If there's anything to get we gonna get it, son
    We'll be drink it up, drink it up, drink it up, drunk
    If we do it like we do it like we usually do
    Man, I'll be doin', you'll be doin', we'll be doin' too
    Waking up? Hell, we'll be coming to
    We'll be walking out talking 'bout "What the hell did we do?"

    I got a whole lotta quit in me
    A lotta don't-give-a-shit in me
    The clock's about to hit 4:20
    And I'll be smoking in a red-hot minute
    Forty hours in a jailhouse
    I need a cold beer bailout
    I ain't got another shift in me
    I got a whole lotta quit in me

    Well it's Mississippi hot and I'm Tennessee tired
    And I keep lookin' at my watch and I keep countin' down the hours
    And I'm thankful for this job and everything that I got
    'Bout thirty more minutes, this hammer's gonna drop

    I got a whole lotta quit in me
    A lotta don't-give-a-shit in me
    The clock's about to hit 4:20
    And I'll be smoking in a red-hot minute
    Forty hours in a jailhouse
    I need a cold beer bailout
    I ain't got another shift in me
    I got a whole lotta quit in me

    Don't come and get me if you ain't got plenty
    I got a whole lotta quit in me
    All right, here we go Writer/s: Daniel Meadows, Randy Houser
