​Friend Of A Friend Of The Working Class

This song is by The Upper Crust and appears on the album Let Them Eat Rock (1995).

You get up in the morning, to join the common herd
Your lot - is a hard one, or so I have heard
I know how hard it is, to bust one's ass
'Cause I'm a Friend Of A Friend - Of The Working Class
I'm a Friend of a Friend, yeah!
I'm a Friend of a Friend of your class

Well, I heard about the workin' man, what they say y'all
How the working man slaves his life away
And though I never had to work an honest day myself
'Cause since the day I been born I been a'rollin' in wealth, Hah!
I heard how the work just never stops
How the working man works till he's ready to drop, y'all
And you know I can well imagine what it must be like
Although my own hands are just a'soft and white
But I know what it's like to have to bust your ass
'Cause I'm a Friend Of A Friend Of The Working Class
Unnnhh!

Well, the working man he can't never win-hhh
Every job he gets done - has to do it again, y'all
And I can really believe that it must be tough
No matter how hard he works it ain't never enough
Yeah, he got to run when the boss is callin'
I find the whole thing simply appallin'
He can't barely fulfill his own basic needs
Every little babe another - mouth to feed
Well, I know what it's like to have to bust your ass
'Cause I'm a Friend Of A Friend Of The Working Class
Well, I know what it's like to have to bust your ass
'Cause I'm a Friend Of A Friend Of The Working Class
Well, I know what it's like to have to bust your ass!
'Cause I'm a Friend Of A Friend Of The Working Class!
Allll-Right!
