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 (oh yeah)
I'm working so hard to keep you in luxury

And you can't call me lazy on 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

I'm working so hard (oh yeah)
Harder, harder
Working, working...

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
