(note: Sorry about the language..the song just doesn't work without it)

You wake up every morning
Have your cup of coffee..
And a smoke

Then you take her off to work
'Cause that's what keeps us livin'
Ain't no joke

You get back home
And finish off
The coffees on the counter gettin' cold

And the fear goes running through your mind..
You might be gettin' too damn old

(Chorus)
The days they are a wasting
As time goes draggin' on
And the embarrassment I'm facing
May never be gone

Worked hard all my life
Now this is my reward
Now I'm gettin' checks
From the unemployment board

You've stared at the wall so much
You've noticed and conquered every crack
And as the day drags on you wonder
If the job will ever come back

There's talk the plants 'a closing
What will you..where will you go?
And the fear goes running through your mind
You might be gettin' too damn old


The days they are a wasting
As time goes draggin' on
And the embarrassment I'm facing
May never be gone

Worked hard all my life
Now this is my reward
Now I'm gettin' checks
From the unemployment board

You watch the clock until it's time
To pick her up and bring her home
And then..

You thank the Lord she's sticking with you
Time and time again
For if she hadn't been there
You know you'd been crazy long ago

'Cause she's the only one that's telling you..
Your not gettin'...
Too damn old

-End-
