Take This Job and Shove It
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more
My woman done left and took all the reasons
That I was working for
Ya better not try stand in my way
When I'm walkin' out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more

I been working in this factory
Pretty close to 15 years
I've seen some of my best friends women
Standing in a pool of tears
I've seen a lot of kinfolks dyin'
Had a lot of bills to pay
Lord, I'd give the shirt right offin my back
If I had the guts to say:

Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more
My woman done left and took all the reasons
That I was working for
Ya better not try stand in my way
When I'm walkin', out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more

The foreman is a regular S.O.B.
And the line boss, he's a fool
He got himself a brand new flattop haircut
Lord, he really thinks that's cool
One of these days I'm gonna blow my top
And that sucker, he's gonna pay
I can't wait to see their faces
When I get the nerve to say

Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more
Woman done left and took all the reasons
I was working for
Ya better not try to stand in my way
When I'm walkin', out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more

Take this job and shove it
