PRIDE OF A PAYCHECK4

A pick up truck and a family home proudly every night
A wage bearing dignity and that is only right
A pick up truck and a family home proudly every night
A wage bearing dignity and that is only right
Only, only right

The pride of a paycheck doesn't go far
If the money doesn't make it around
And those corporate welfare food stamps
Just don't taste right going down

Smother them in ketchup
Or let them drown
In butter, herbs and seasonings
They’re still rancid going down

Fishy business don't lie easy
On the stomach late at night
Sleep is one long nightmare that
Keeps you up past first light

A pick up truck and a family home proudly every night
A wage bearing dignity and that is only right
A pick up truck and a family home proudly every night
A wage bearing dignity and that is only right
Only, only right

Thank goodness in our country
Freedom & wealth abound
Though among us working folk
It's a hard dirt road we’re lurching down

Freedom, o freedom
To admire excessively
The blessed few among us
Wiith more than anyone could ever need

A pick up truck and a family home proudly every night
A wage bearing dignity and that is only right
A pick up truck and a family home proudly every night
A wage bearing dignity and that is only right
Only, only right
