drinkin with no job

Hmmmm, what can I say about this song!! 

I was made redundant from my job and felt I'd been shafted at the time. Not by my immediate manager, but higher up. This one is for anyone who's been in that position. 

drinkin with no job - Music & Lyrics SL Miller

Verse 1

Hey I was a really good worker yeah

I toiled for years and I got damn good pay

Til some idiot in town, wanted to shut me down

Well that’s ok, oneday you’ll lose your job too

I can’t wait for that day, I’ll sing cheers and say

Oh you’re a piece a crap, I’ve got a better job than you

Chorus

I’m drinking with no job

Cause the boss has laid me off

I raise my glass say ‘cheers, here’s screw to you too’

Then I throw it down the hatch

And pour me another wine,

My money’s gone and I’m drinkin with the job

Verse 2

I’m back checking papers everyday

To find that job that’s gonna get me pay

To keep up the habit, that I have just developed

Cause it helps to soak my blues away

Filling out applications is such a pain

It’s getting hard to think

I need a drink

And tomorrows another day

Chorus

I’m drinking with no job

Cause the boss has laid me off

I raise my glass say ‘cheers, here’s screw to you too’

Then I throw it down the hatch

And I pour me another wine,

My money’s gone and I’m drinkin with no job

Bridge

Cause if you’re drinkin with no job,

Your blues are gonna wear off

You’ll feel down and out of luck

You won’t really give a ……damn what state you’re in

Cause your money’s gone and you’re drinkin with no job.
