When the cold sets in and your fingertips crack
You can't get no relief from the hitch in your back 
It's hard to believe that you thought it'd be fine
You didn't even mind when you signed the dotted line 
Your bed has been made there ain't no excuse 
That's where you gotta lay cause everybody pays their dues 
It's only called work they never call it fun
Now you gotta get to work it's gotta get done 
I could've been a lawyer a doctor or such
But from myself I never really expected so much
So it's up in the morning gone until five
And I'm drinking so much in between it's not even right
Too much work tends to make a man mean
When every single day is just the same old routine 
You dig a pit you fill it you make it a mound
Then you pack it all up and it's off to another town 
Another day another dime
Puts the bodies in the pit and you cover them up with lye
You're working by nine drinking by five
It takes a whole lotta bodies just to keep one man alive 
So when the cold sets in and your fingertips crack
You can't get no relief from the hitch in your back 
It's hard to believe that you thought it'd be fine 
You didn't even mind when you signed the dotted line 
It never gets better it only gets worse 
To be gainfully employed is both a blessing and a curse 
Sometimes you gotta dig deep it's a test of your will
When them bodies back up 'cause your pit got filled 
Another day another dime 
Puts the bodies in the pit and you cover them up with lye
You're working by nine drinking by five
It takes a whole lotta bodies just to keep one man alive
