Everybody’s Workin’ For The Man
-Kevin Welch

Chorus
Everybody’s working for the man again
Everybody’s working for the man
Everybody’s working for the man again
Everybody’s working for the man

We had a hardware store on Main Street
A drug store and a grocery too
Then the mega-market opened on the edge of town
And there was nothing anybody could do

Chorus
Everybody’s working for the man again
Everybody’s working for the man
Mom and Pop they had to close up shop
Everybody’s working for the man

We had a radio station that played our music
The way we all liked it round here
Then a big corporation with a whole lot of money
Told our jockeys what they wanted to hear

Chorus
Everybody’s working for the man again
Everybody’s working for the man
They got everybody dancing to the same Top Ten
Everybody’s working for the man

The fox is in the hen house, cows are in the corn
Rooster’s too scared to crow
Fat cats are up in the farmhouse now
Doin’ the do-si-do

The broadcasters bought off the FCC
Big oil’s got the EPA
Halliburton Halliburton Halliburton Halliburton
What else do you have to say

Chorus
Everybody’s working for the man again
Everybody’s working for the man
Everybody’s working for the man again
Everybody’s working for the man

Little fish are eaten by the big fish
Swallowed up head and tail
Then the big fish are eaten by the bigger fish
Till we’re all in the belly of the whale

Chorus
Everybody’s working for the man again
Everybody’s working for the man
Everybody’s working for the man again
Everybody’s working for the man
