lyrics

Look out the window at the morning sun
Week is over, day’s begun
Some like the farmer to his plow are still working

In the city children play
Men in suits on Saturday
Women too, all going away, he they’re working

Here I sit in my usual place
Winter sun just touched my face
Though I’ll be sitting here all day, hey I’m working

Even if things change
Still they stay the same
The clock that makes our sun and rain is ever turning

You can take a vacation, it’ll be nice
Go out to a party once or twice
Get away for the weekend, where will you go?
Somewhere nice, somewhere sweet
Better make it close cause come the week
You’ll be back to work, work, work work work work work work
Work, work, work work work

But now it’s lunch, time for a break
Workers pause at the work they make
Some like the farmer to his plow are still working

Some have no time for things today
Busy work of the world at play
A man tries to make his lover stay, hey they’re working

I’ve barely moved half an inch
But my mind’s been roaming continents
How ‘bout you out in your stint, are you working?

Even if things change
Still they stay the same
The clock that makes our joy and pain is ever turning

You can take a vacation, it’ll be nice
Go out to a party once or twice
Get away for the weekend, where will you go?
Somewhere nice, somewhere sweet
Better make it close cause come the week
You’ll be back to work, work, work work work work work work
Work, work, work work work

Evening bells ringing over the town
Children laying their studies down
Whether it’s dinner or a dream, their minds are working

Like everything that’s on the earth
Curtains down or fresh at birth
Strain for joy, strain for mirth, the joy is working

And meanwhile back behind the plow
He’s sown a field or two somehow
The grateful sweat pours from his brow as he’s working

Even if things change
Still they stay the same
The clock that makes our sun and rain is ever turning

You can take a vacation, it’ll be nice
Go out to a party once or twice
Get away for the weekend, where will you go?
Somewhere nice, somewhere sweet
Somewhere hot, sitting on a beach
Better make it close cause come the week
You’ll be back to work, work, work work work work work work
Work, work, work work work
