I work hard on the factory floor
I'm getting overtime and ready for more
I'll see a pension and a good vacation
And I don't worry 'bout the automation
I heard they might be going back to coal
Just like in the days of old
We'll be happy

I had some trouble with the girl of my dreams
We've been together since our early teens
But things are changing as we both grow older
And now she kinda said it was over
But I'm not worried this has happened before
She'll be back knocking at my door
We'll be happy

The fortuneteller said I'd write a hit tune
But she also said it wouldn't be soon
So I'm 'a sitting here scratching my head
Hopin' it happens before I drop dead
But I'm not worried cause it's coming to me
I'll be winning that lottery
I'll be happy

Another tune with the Downchild gang. Mike Fitzpatrick is the first drummer I played with when I got to Toronto and he played on the first CD Pat Carey did the horn parts and Gary Kendall supervised the session and did the arrangement
