“Every morning I get up
before that rooster crows
headed straight to somewhere
I don’t even want to go
eggs and bacon in my belly
and a Folger’s coffee buzz
good ol’ radar detector
it protects me from the fuzz
well I do what I gotta do
to get through working that 9 to 5
it’s killing me but then again
it’s keeping me alive

It puts the gas in my truck
butter on my biscuits
couple bucks when I’m itchin’
for a scratch-off ticket
that poker makes me broker
every Saturday night
but I still got running water
and they ain’t cut off the lights
come Friday night my friends
and I start peeling off them labels
working hard all week
puts beer on the table

Eighteen bucks an hour
and a million dollar tan
all them women whistle at me
while I’m working for the man
making me some cold hard cash
out in that summer sun
come Friday I’ll have money
but by Monday I’ll have none
once the bills are paid
and that bass boat tank
has gone from E to F
I fill that big ol’ cooler up
there ain’t a whole lot left

But I got gas in my truck
butter on my biscuits
couple bucks when I’m itchin’
for a scratch-off ticket
that poker makes me broker
every Saturday night
but I still got running water
and they ain’t cut off the lights
come Friday night my friends
and I start peeling off them labels
working hard all week
puts the beer on the table

Oh, woh, I’m a simple man, yes I am
all I need is a few good friends and a good job
and a good dog, maybe a woman that understands


An’ a little gas in my truck
some butter on my biscuits
couple bucks when I’m itchin’
for a scratch-off ticket
that poker makes me broker
every Saturday night
but I still got running water
and they ain’t cut off the lights
come Friday night my friends
and I start peeling off them labels
working hard all week yeah
puts the beer on the table, oh, ah
puts the beer on the table

Why don’t ‘cha’ll pass me
a’nother one of ‘dem cold cans?”.
