Slaving Away

Glad today’s over
A hard slog it was
Slaving away
For a tyrant of a boss

Slaving away
For a pittance
A minimum wage
Paid by villains

Dreading going back again
But needs must
In these hard times
Gotta earn a crust

Slaving away
For a pittance
A minimum wage
Paid by villains

Gonna get that shack
By those mountains
Close to the river
Saving those thousands

Slaving away
For a pittance
A minimum wage
Paid by villains

One day I’ll be free
One day
Keep the dream alive
It’s your life, but hey

Slaving away
For a pittance
A minimum wage
Paid by villains
Lost their way
Lost your way
Path obscured
Forever maybe…
