the rope song lyrics – devo

well, i been workin’ in a coalmine
goin’ down, down, workin’ in a coalmine
whew, about to slip down

five o’ clock in the mornin’
i’m up before the sun
when my work day is over
i’m too tired for havin’ fun

lord, i am so tired
how long can this go on?

i been workin’, goin’ workin’
whew about to slip down

/ devo lyrics
