Give the last word to the Ramones :lol:

"The Job That Ate My Brain"

Out of bed at 6:15 In a rush and you can't think
Gotta catch the bus and train
I'm in a rush and feelin' insane

I can't take this crazy pace
I've become a mental case
Yeah, this is the job that ate my brain

Go to work, it's such a drag
Face the boss, he's such a nag
In a suit and in a tie

I look so late I wanna die

I can't take this crazy pace
I've become a mental case
Yeah, this is the job that ate my brain

I punch the clock at 9:05
I know I'm late, but still alive
Everyone just stares at me
(I'm last in line for this party)

I can't take this crazy pace
I've become a mental case
Yeah, this is the job that ate my brain

Five o'clock rolls around
I feel so glad I kiss the ground
Ain't enough hours in the day
There's go to be a better way

I can't take this crazy pace
I've become a mental case
Yeah, this is the job that ate my brain

I wonder if this is the same track as 'Quiet Place', recorded by The Paragons for Bunny Lee?

These are great. Thank you all so much.

Yes JB - the original of 'Take this job and shove it' was by 'Johnny Paycheck' who had an interesting life:

http://www.cmt.com/artists/az/paycheck_johnny/bio.jhtml

For this particular friend though, I think that the Dead Kennedys version is the one. Back to back with Career Opportunities is a fantastic suggestion though.

Gordon - Your suggestion of the Sam Cooke record sounds perfect. I have two Sam Cooke comps which I checked excitedly. Alas - they both have an almost identical tracklisting and neither has this particular gem.

Also, there must surely be a James Brown tune on this theme but I'm blowed if I can think what it is.

Never mind - I got loads to go on here.

I will try to remember to post a final setlist here after the gig (27th).

Thanks again to you all

Baldy.


Take this job and shove it,
I ain't workin' here no more.
My woman done left,
An' took all the reasons I was workin' for.
You better not to try to stand in my way,
As I'm a walkin' out the door.
Take this job and shove it,
I ain't workin' here no more.

I've been workin' in this fact'ry,
For nigh on fifteen years.
All this time, I watched my woman,
Drownin' in a pool of tears.
An I've seen a lot of my good folk die,
Had a lot of bills to pay.
I'd give the shirt right off of my back,
If I had the guts to say.

Take this job and shove it,
I ain't workin' here no more.
My woman done left,
An' took all the reasons I was workin' for.
You better not to try to stand in my way,
As I'm a walkin' out the door.
Take this job and shove it,
I ain't workin' here no more.

Well, that foreman, he's a regular dog,
The line boss is a fool.
Got a brand new flat-top haircut;
Lord, he thinks he's cool.
One of these days, I'm gonna blow my top,
And sucker, he's gonna pay
Lord, I can't wait to see their faces,
When I get the nerve to say:

Take this job and shove it,
I ain't workin' here no more.
My woman done left,
An' took all the reasons I was workin' for.
You better not to try to stand in my way,
As I'm a walkin' out the door.
Take this job and shove it,
I ain't workin' here no more.

Take this job and shove it.

Ok - tonights the night. I'm in the 'Play Bar' on Old Street. Their website says they have funky house.

Dunno what they're going to make of my 4 hour set which starts with Horace Silver and finishes with Lionrock via the Dead Kennedys, Marlene Shaw, Prince Moonie and the Teardrop Explodes.

I think funky house is about the only music genre not on the playlist :!:

Have a good one tonight Baldy!

I've dj'd there a couple of times and just about anything goes, although I remember from their website they specified that no gabba or drum'n'bass will be played. I can understand the aversion to gabba but quite what they've got against drum'n'bass I don't know, although having read that I was tempted to take along a few old Ganja Kru tunes... :lol:
