Minimum Wage

Lyal Strickland

I’ll work this farm ’til my days are done
Don’t need no watch to tell me about the midday sun
You can have your job I don’t need it none
Climbing corporate ladders that got no rungs
It ain’t just about religion and guns
But I find some things in common with the prodigal son

Chorus:
This minimum wage ain’t gonna be my saving grace
It’s just table scraps falling off a rich man’s plate
No corporate cage is gonna own my soul all day
I can hold my own but I ain’t gonna pull their weight
No minimum wage ain’t gonna be my saving grace
I ain’t living long but I ain’t gonna run that race

Back to back shifts wearing out your shoes
Then the paycheck comes it’s not enough to get you through
You work your life and you owe it who
The boys at the top are tools and you’re kinda screwed
So join me brother and we’ll start brand new
Don’t need middle manager to approve

CHORUS

This minimum wage ain’t gonna be my saving grace
It’s just table scraps falling off a rich man’s plate
No corporate cage is gonna own my soul all day
I can hold my own but I ain’t gonna pull their weight
No minimum wage ain’t gonna be my saving grace
I ain’t living long and I ain’t gonna run that race
No rich man’s son’s gonna put me in my place
Gonna find a way out of this minimum wage
