John Mellencamp — Factory lyrics

Written by John Mellencamp

Be yourself, boys
Let's get this show on the road

Well I'm up every morning by 6: 08
Take the Voltswagon bus up the interstate
Feel Charlie Manson just like...
I'm diggin' real hard for some money to spend
Well it ain't that bad if the summer's free
I got my evenings... To cruise the scene oh yeah

I got a pretty old lady
Who rolls back in the morning
She don't pressure me about my over time
Got a kickin' black chick
Who meets me in the alley
Sayin' unsnap your jeans, baby
I'll take what I find
I got non-stop shootem up, on a layaway plan
I've got a workman's compensation, I'm a union man

*Working at the factoy
Gonna get me some of them luxuries
Well now me and the boys
Machines are making noise
Working at the factory (moola)

It works like this

I got one eye on the time clock
I got my other eye on, the girl in the hall
I got this... Rocket, hum, stuck right here in my pocket
Waitin' for the five o'clock whistle to call
I'm the whistle dancer of the production line
I got an encour tomarrow at the very same time

(*Repeat Chorus 2 times)
