Jobs and Occupations

I don’t remember doing this subject. If we did, it was years forever ago. 😸

There should be a lot of these songs, titles or lyrics with jobs or occupations, etc.

 

Journeyman - Blackmore’s Night

 

Journeyman - Iron Maiden

 

From Wikipedia —- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journeyman

The term "journeyman" was originally used in the medieval trade guilds. Journeymen were paid daily and the word "journey" is derived from journée, meaning "whole day" in French. Each individual guild generally recognised three ranks of workers: apprentices, journeymen, and masters. A journeyman, as a qualified tradesman, could become a master and run their own business, but most continued working as employees.[3]

Nothing Ever Happens - Del Amitri

 

Post office clerks put up signs saying 'position closed'
And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coats
And janitors padlock the gates
For security guards to patrol

Livin’ On A Prayer - Bon Jovi

 

Tommy used to work on the docks
Union's been on strike
He's down on his luck
It's tough, so tough
Gina works the diner all day
Working for her man

She brings home her pay for love

For love
