Chain Gang Lyrics
(hooh! aah!) [x4]

(Well, don't you know)
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang

All day long they're singing (hooh! aah!)[x4]

(Well, don't you know)
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang

All day long they work so hard
'till the sun is going down
Working on the highway and byways
and wearing, wearing a frown
You hear them moaning their live away
Then you hear somebody say

That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang

Can't you hear them saying
Mm, I'm going home one of these days
I'm going home see my woman
Whom I love so dear
But meanwhile I got to work right here

(Well, don't you know)
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang

All day long they're singing
my, my, my, my, my , my, my work is so hard
Give me water, I'm thirsty

[FADE:]
My work is so hard
