I head this song circa 1960 on Wayne Raney's WCKY Jamboree. I don't know who sang it, and all I remember is the chorus:

Work, work, work-work-work.
Seems like that's all I do.
Work, work, work-work-work,
It's rough, I'm telling you,
And it seems to me the more I work,
The poorer I become.
If I keep on working hard
Some day I'll be a bum.

Anyone recognize it?

Subject: Lyr Add: WORK WORK WORK (from Lee Dorsey)

Probably not the same song, but interesting, nonetheless. This is early R&B:


WORK, WORK, WORK
As sung by Lee Dorsey, 1965

(Work, work, work)
(Work, work, work)

1. I look for a job both day an' night.
I can't find nothin' that will suit me right.
A little bit o' labor i'm not tryin' to shirk,
But ev'rything i found seems too much like work.

CHORUS: (Work, work, work)
What you talkin' 'bout?
(Work, work, work)
Are you talkin' to me?
(Work, work, work)
Mm-hmm.
(Work, work, work)
Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Does anybody here know somebody
Who needs somebody who wants somebody to love?
(Love, love, love)
Now you talkin' now.
(Love, love, love)

2. I need a little spendin' change ev'ry now and then.
I ain't seen a quarter since who-knows-when.
I asked my friends if they could spare a little cash,
But all they ever do is stand around an' talk trash
About—

CHORUS
