[1977]
Scritta da David Allan Coe.



“Prendi ‘sto lavoro e ficcatelo in quel posto...”, così dice al padrone il lavoratore che finalmente ha aperto gli occhi... Una canzone che stette nella top ten country per ben 18 settimane, di cui due al primo posto (vorrà dire qualcosa, no?!?)... Coverizzata - c’era da aspettarselo - dai Dead Kennedys nel loro album «Bedtime for Democracy» del 1986...

Per il percorso “Mort au travail”...

Buon Primo Maggio!
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more
My woman done left
And took all the reason
I was working for
Y' better not try to stand in my way
Cause I'm a walkin' out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

I been working in this factory
For now on fifteen years
All this time I watched my woman
Drownin' in a pool of tears
And I've seen a lot of good folks die
Who had a lot of bills to pay
I'd give the shirt right off of 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 reason
I was working for
Y' better not try to stand in my way
Cause I'm a walkin' out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

Well that foreman he's a regular dog
The line boss he's a fool
Got a brand new flat top haircut
Lord, he thinks he's cool
One of these days
I'm gonna blow my top
And that sucker he's gonna pay
Lord, 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
My woman done left
And took all the reason
I was working for
Y' better not try to stand in my way
Cause I'm a walkin' out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

Take this job and shove it
