lyrics

If I ain't laughing it don't mean I'm crying.
If I ain't living it don't mean I'm dying.
Stop asking to see my pearly whites.
No time for tooth, son - just stay tight.
Cuz no one gets rich on their own sweat these days;
no one out here gets rich.
No one gets rich on their own sweat...
Threw back another hour,
I put it down like a broken mule.
Threw back another hour,
I put it down, beat black & blue.
Threw back another hour,
I put it down like a worn-out fool.
Given time only cowards gonna wonder
if they got nothin' better to do.
A body set to rest ain't got no soul.
A house if left empty it gon' get cold.
Gotta fuel the furnace;
pig iron got the scrap left in it.
Gotta burn it pure;
I know the steel gonna take me with it...
No one out here gettin' rich.
No one gets rich on their own sweat.
I'ma get me rich yet!
