Album: Dump the Bosses Off Your Back [2008]
Dump the Bosses Off Your Back
Are you cold, forlorn and hungry?
Are there lots of things you lack?
Is your life made up of misery?
Then dump the bosses off your back.

Are your clothes all torn and tattered?
Are you living in a shack?
Would you have your troubles scattered?
Then dump the bosses off your back.

Are you almost split asunder?
Loaded like a long-eared jack?
Boob - why don't you buck like thunder –
And dump the bosses off your back?

All the agonies you suffer
You can end with one good whack!!
Stiffen up, you ornery duffer
And dump the bosses off your back.

Did you find your factories closed down?
Are your neighbors all on crack?
Bud, let me give you the low-down
Dump the bosses off your back!

Did you find your pension looted?
Are your buddies in Iraq?
Would you see those rascals booted?
Dump the bosses off your back!
Dump the bosses off your back!!
