When I Get Paid - Jerry Lee Lewis

When I Get Paid

Jerry Lee Lewis

(Shead - Wilbon, SUN 352, 1960)

Oh well, I work hard every day
Can't hardly wait to draw my pay
It's Monday mornin' and I'm on the job
Do the same old thing, a-just workin' hard
Mmmm, Tuesday evening I'm at it again
I ain't had no rest since I don't know when
Wednesday mornin', I can't hardly see
Man, this work is killin' me
Thursday morning, I just can make it
Well, I don't know how long this boy can take it

(Let's go, shake it honey)
(A little saxophone now)

Oh well, I work hard every day
Can't hardly wait to draw my pay
It's Monday mornin' and I'm out on the job
Do the same old thing, I'm just a-workin' hard
Tuesday evening I'm at it again
I ain't had none of that rest since I don't know when
Wednesday mornin', I can't hardly see
Man, this work is killin' me
Thursday morning, I just can make it
Well, I don't know how long I can take it
Mmmm, ain't had none of that rest since I don't know when
Wednesday mornin', can't hardly see
Man, this work is killin' me
Thursday morning, I just can make it
Well, I don't know how long this boy can take it
