    Different vid from when I last commented on the15th of May,last year,but I like it! Years ago,when I used to sing this with one of my bands,the bass player insisted on doing the low voice lines. I must have told him a hundred times,that it's "you can't use the car,'cause you didn't work a LICK".....NOT,as he insisted,"work a late"..... must get it right!

    Eddies version is easily the best


I'm gonna raise a fuss, I'm gonna raise a holler
About a workin' all summer just to try to earn a dollar
Every time I call my baby, and ask to get a date
My boss says, \"No dice son, you gotta work late\"
