lyrics

1. Ainʼt I a peach?
I do whatʼs got to get done
And when Iʼm through, Iʼm tuckered out like a plum
Ainʼt I sweet? Your arguments have no meat
And Iʼm here nodding right along.
v. Iʼve been spending my whole life working itʼs true
My legs are swollen and my feet black and blue
Iʼve been wasting my whole life working for you
When I sleep itʼll be six feet deep and far from you.
2. I work all day,
ruin my body and sweat
I try so hard and then I drink to forget
All for the pay and the promise of something
I should have clarified from the start.
v. Iʼve been spending my whole life working itʼs true
My legs are swollen and my feet black and blue
Iʼve been wasting my whole life working for you
When I sleep itʼll be six feet deep and far from you.
3. Iʼm true to you.
I never lie and donʼt cheat
You deserve it too, but Iʼm expecting some treats
When we fight I hope that someday
Your wallet will be as empty as your heart.
v. Iʼve been spending my whole life working itʼs true
My legs are swollen and my feet black and blue
Iʼve been wasting my whole life working for you
When I sleep itʼll be six feet deep and far from you.
4. Ainʼt I a peach?
I do whatʼs got to get done
And when Iʼm through, Iʼm tuckered out like a plum
Ainʼt I sweet? Your arguments have no meat
And Iʼm here nodding right along.
