lyrics

I had a job just the other day
Yea, I had a job that paid
But winter came and I was on my way
Talking about those unemployed blues

Everybody seems to ask, "what do you do?"
"I'm living proof," I reply
My time is spent, but I'm without the rent
Talking about those unemployed blues

"File for E.I.," they say to me
But, man, ain't that the pits
Unless you've earned maybe it ain't your turn
Talking about those unemployed blues

But hell, I'm on the dole
It feels like I'm pissing gold
It's hard looking for work, man, with all these perks
Talking about those unemployed blues

They say it's about who you know
And where you're from can come into play
So I'm shaking hands in foreign lands
Talking about those unemployed blues

Some people play it all by ear
Some people decide out of fear
Between those to sides, I think I'll find my stride
Talking about those unemployed blues
