My Daily Bread

 

How many seconds, how many minutes

How many hours, how many days?

Next week my rent is due, gotta make it through 

On minimum wage

 

We watch your kids, we wash your car

We blow the leaves out of your yard

We paint your walls we built your house 

And they wanna build a wall to keep us out

 

Baby’s milk and mama’s pills

Working two jobs to pay my bills

Just can’t seem to get ahead

Chasin’ down my daily bread

 

I help you and you help me

That’s how the Golden Rule should be

Babysitter’s sick, gonna lose a day

That left front tire will have to wait

 

We milk your cows, we pick your fruit

We press your pretty business suit

They say we’re blessed but we feel meek

When one bad tooth costs us a week

 

Baby’s milk and mama’s pills

Working two jobs to pay my bills

Just can’t seem to get ahead

Chasin’ down my daily bread

 

How many seconds, how many minutes

How many hours, how many days?

Next week my rent is due, gotta make it through on

Minimum wage

 

How many seconds, how many minutes

How many hours, how many days?

Next week my rent is due, gotta make it through on

Minimum wage

Next week my rent is due, gotta make it through on

Minimum wage
