Heptune presents:

I Gotta Get Up and Go To Work

Transcribed from Irving Aaronson and His Commanders, with vocal by Dick Robertson, recorded 1/17/1936.
From Songs of the Depression, Mojo CD-MOJO-311.

Exactly eight o' clock,
Say, where's my other sock?
I've got a job, so help me, Bob,
I've gotta get up and go to work!

Must be there on the dot,
I hope my coffee's hot,
Bring on those eggs, those scrambled eggs,
I've gotta get up and go to work!

I'll do my best to make some dough
So I can come home and say:
We're out of debt, it's really so,
You'll never regret our wedding day!

If I should stay in bed,
We'd soon be in the red,
One kiss and then, like all good men,
I've gotta get up and go to work!
