Lyrics

 

Got something to tell you babe, I’ll tell you straight

I went to work today, found out today was my last day

I can’t believe it happened…

Let me tell you exactly how it happened

Had lunch with the big guy and the big guy said,

We got to cut something….we got to cut something…

 

My head grew heavy and my hands got hot

Next thing I know I’m out here in the parking lot

And I’m talking to you on the telephone, babe

And you’re telling me to come on home

You work your whole life tryin’ to build up something

Then along comes a stiff wind and knocks it down to nothing

 

I didn’t lose my job, my job was taken from me

There’s a difference, you know what I mean

I didn’t lose my job, my job lost me.

 

They tried to tell me, Just watch your back they said

I said, How am I supposed to watch my back and still see where I’m going?  

Hey Buddy, just don’t say we didn’t warn you            

 

Be tough for a while but I think we can make it

We got the love, the kind to take us

To the other side of the difficult water

Take us to the other side

‘Cause when you look at me that way and you call my name

I know nothing’s gonna stand in our way

 

I didn’t lose my job, my job was taken from me

There’s a difference, what’s the difference, I’m a free man

I didn’t lose my job, my job lost me

So long, goodbye, good luck, see you later...
