Work or Play Songs

Some of us are stuck at home now and would rather be at work. Some of us are at work and would rather be home. There are so many songs out there about work or play, what is your favorite? I will start with one of my favorites:

Bang the drum all day

Todd Rundgren 


Big Shout out to ALL the essential workers out there on the frontline! You're all heroes!!

Good Time-Alan Jackson

 

Work, work all week long
Punchin' that clock from dusk 'till dawn

For a good time

Hard Luck Story- Elton John

 

Sometimes I think I'm going crazy, staring at the same four walls
Waiting for the working day to end
Then I get home so wasted, worn out, I curse at you and tell you
How I've done the work of ten to fifteen men
