We Must Work

Itís tough to try to find a job...
Itís tougher if you donít...
Itís rough to have to work
all day,... Itís rougher if you wonít...
There is no way to easy pay... With honesty
of heart... Or any true reward in life...
without a humble start... A man
must earn his daily bread... And
pay for what he buys... And if
he wants security... He must economize...
He cannot live for just today... Tomorrow
will not wait... The clock is always
ticking And... the time is
growing late... Itís tough to walk
the pavements and...Itís tougher
if you donít... Itís rough to keep
a budget,But... itís rougher if you wonít.

Itís tough to try to find a job,
Itís tougher if you donít.
Itís rough to have to work all day,
Itís rougher if you wonít.
There is no way to easy pa
With honesty of heart.
Or any true reward in life,
without a humble start.
A man must earn his daily bread,
And pay for what he buys,
And if he wants security,
He must economize.
He cannot live for just today,
Tomorrow will not wait.
The clock is always ticking
And the time is growing late.
Itís tough to walk the pavements
Itís tougher if you donít.
Itís rough to keep a budget,
But itís rougher if you wonít.
