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]

She Came In Through The Bathroom Window-Beatles

 

She said she'd always been a dancer
She worked at fifteen clubs a day
And though she thought I knew the answer
Well, I knew what I could not say

And so I quit the police department
And got myself a steady job
And though she tried her best to help me
She could steal, but she could not rob
