Working Man: A Critical Analysis

I get up at 7, yeah, and I go to work at nine.

Lucky bastard. I get up at 6 and I'm on the road by 8 to get to training by 9. At the latest.

I got no time for living, yes
I'm working all the time


The fuck? Seems like it, right? This line gets a big fuckin 'EY.

Seems to me, I could live my life
a lot better than I think I am


Just possibly.

I guess that's why they call me
They call me the Working Man
They call me the Working Man
I guess that's what I am.


Though thanks to this song, I don't think we working men have to guess any more.

'sI get home at 5 o'clock

You lucky fucking bastard. You see, this is why White Blues doesn't work. I'm lucky to get home by seven. And that's before errands. Which is why I never run errands. Getting your shirt dry-cleaned is pretty damned pointless if you ram into the back of a semi because you've been on the road for twelve hours and you're not allowed any Dew or Beer or DewBeer.

and I dig myself out an ice cold beer

Or Mountain Dew, but I haven't actually had one of those to drink for a month or more. For those who were worried I was "addicted" or "getting fat from drinking too much fucking soda"; fear no more.

Always seem to be wondring why there's nothing going down here

Story of my life.

Seems to me, I could live my life
a lot better than I think I am


Our philosophical dilemma, as modern man (as Working man!) is to figure out how so, and then to achieve it, fait accompli.

I guess that's why they call me
They call me the Working Man
They call me the Working Man
I guess that's what I am.


The more you repeat it, the more sense it makes.

*three minute solo*

Oh yeah, that sums up my life to a T.

[repeat verses]

It wouldn't make sense without the repitition. Think about it if you don't get it, but not too hard. It's not a Magic Eye puzzle.
