I want a real fine car, fly Miami too
All the rum I want to drink it, all the whiskey too
My woman need a new dress, my daughter got to go to school

I'm working so hard, I'm working for the company
I'm working so hard to keep you in luxury

And you can't call me lazy on the 7 day a week
Make a million for the Texans, 20 dollar me
Yes, I want a gold ring, ride in a limousine

I'm working so hard, I'm working for the company
I'm working so hard to keep you in luxury

Now listen, I'm a proud man, not a beggar walking on the street

I'm working so hard to keep you from the poverty
I'm working so hard to keep you in luxury

Oh yeah
Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo


I'm working so hard

I'm working so hard

 
Harder, harder
Working, working, working, working

I think it's such a strange thing, giving me concern
Half the world it got nothing, the other they got money to burn
My woman need a new dress, my daughter got to go to school

I'm working so hard, I'm working for the company, oh yeah
I'm working so hard, oh yeah

Working on a Sunday in refinery
Make a million for the Texans, 20 dollar me
All the rum I want to drink it, I got responsibility

I'm working so hard to keep you from the poverty, oh yeah
I'm working so hard, I'm working for the company, oh yeah
I'm working so hard, oh yeah

Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo
Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo
Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo


Oh yeah
Oh yeah, yeah
 
Harder, harder
Harder, harder
Harder, harder
Harder, harder
