Take This Job and Shove It 
I ain't working here no more 
My woman done left  
and took all the reasons  
I was working for 
You better not try to stand in 
my way as I'm walking out the door 
Take this job and shove it 
I ain't working here no more 
 
I've been working in this factory 
For nigh on fifteen years 
All this time I watched my woman 
Drowning in a pool of tears 
And I've seen a lot of good folks die 
That had a lot of bills to pay 
I'd give the shirt right off my back 
If I had the guts to say 
 
Take This Job and Shove It 
I ain't working here no more 
My woman done left  
and took all the reasons  
I was working for 
You better not try to stand in 
my way as I'm walking out the door 
Take this job and shove it 
I ain't working here no more 
 
Well that foreman he's a riggity dog 
The lineboss He's a fool 
Got brand new flattop hair cut 
looorrdd he thinks he's cool 
One of these days I'll blow my top 
And That Sucker he's gonna pay 
lord I can't wait to see their faces 
When I get the nerve to say 
 
Take This Job and Shove It 
I ain't working here no more 
My woman done left  
and took all the reasons  
I was working for 
You better not try to stand in 
my way as I'm walking out the door 
Take this job and shove it 
I ain't working here no more 
 
Take this job and shove it  
I ain't working here no more, 
 
Take this job and shove it
