Night Work

Album: Night Work (2010)
  • When I was a young boy I'd pretend that I had a job
    My daddy stayed pretty while my momma married into the mob
    I dreamed one day I'd be living off the system for free
    But dream's come true, honey, welcome to my reality

    And I sleep all day and awake myself in the shadows
    (It's time to get up, gotta get up)
    I gotta catch that train by midnight for the

    Night work, gotta do the night work
    Punch that clock and break all the numbers
    Night work, gotta do the night work
    Weekday nine to five shift is over

    Didn't ever pay to know I couldn't, couldn't check with the blade
    I used to have the shakes but now they couldn't get in the blade
    I sleep all day but I break my back in the moonlight
    (It's never enough, it's never enough)
    I gotta cash that check by midnight for the

    Night work, gotta do the night work
    Punch that clock and break all the numbers
    Night work, gotta do the night work
    Weekday nine to five shift is over

    Night work, gotta do the night work
    Punch that clock and break all the numbers
    Night work, gotta do the night work
    Weekday nine to five shift is over

    And when the whistle blows and your body can't take it no more
    You gotta keep on moving, remember, this is what you asked for

    N-n-n-n-n-na
    Ooh hoo
    The night work
    N-n-n-n-na, do the night work
    Oh oh night work
    Gotta do the night work
    Nine to five sift is over Writer/s: DEREK GRUEN, SCOTT HOFFMAN, STUART PRICE, JASON SELLARDS
