America, land of the free.
But is that true for you and me?
Got to work to survive
In by nine, out by five

Canít be late, punch the clock
Work all day, shelves to stock
Shuffle paper here and there
Fold it, file it, mail it everywhere

Do this, do that. Whatíd you say?
Overtime? We have to stay?
Work, work, work, day and night
Got bills to pay, oh thatís right.

Tired of working, hate our plight?
Lets start a business, yes, thatís right?
Be independent, on our own
Not a greedy corporate drone

Come and go as we wish
Take a hike, catch some fish
No one cares, weíre the boss
Lose a buck? Thatís our loss

Now weíre free, free at last
Self-employed, what a blast
America, land of the free
At least thatís so, for you and me
