Lyrics

WORKING MAN

I proceed with scientific method
of cause and effect
Analysis and oversight
I am mindful of the gap

These are the best of times
These are the worst of times
Hidden within me
is a comedian

Life isn’t always easy
but I am a working man
a working man, a working man
I like buy one, get one free

This is the season
for making dreams come true
So let me help you
if there’s anything I can do

To those who helped me
I thank you with all my heart
To those I helped
I wish I had done more

To those neglected
I ask for understanding
To those I wronged
I beg forgiveness

I am a working man
a working man, working man
Let’s enjoy our experiences
Experience gives us wisdom

(Bridge)
Better thinking makes for better living
Better living makes for a better life

This is the age of wisdom
This is age of foolishness
This is the epoch of belief
This is the epoch of incredulity

This is the season of Light
This is the season of Darkness
It is the spring of hope
and the winter of despair

We have everything before us
We have nothing ahead us
We are going to heaven
We are going to hell

For good or for evil
superlatives are for comparison
I am a working man

(Outro)
I'm a working man
mindful of the gap
I gotta do my best
before I rest

The gap is the difference
between good and bad
I'm a hard working man
I am a good working man
