Found Love

“Oh grande boss, mi fai lavorare tutto il giorno e quando vorrei bere un goccio d’acqua nemmeno mi fai fermare… Oh grande boss, non sei affatto grande, se solo alto, e questo è tutto…”
Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call?
Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call?
Oh, you ain‘t so big
You‘re just tall, that‘s all

You got me working, boss man
Working ‘round the clock
I want me a drink of water
You won’t let me stop
You big boss man
Can you hear me when I call?
Oh, you ain’t so big
You just tall, that’s all

Gonna get myself a boss man
One gonna treat me right
Work me hard in the day time
But I’ll sure rest easy at night
Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call?
Oh, you ain‘t so big
You just tall, that‘s all
