Lyrics

(Hooh! Aah!) (Hooh! Aah!)
I hear somethin' sayin'
(Hooh! Aah!) (Hooh! Aah!)
(Hooh! Aah!) (Hooh! Aah!)

(Well, don't you know)

That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
All day long they're singin'
(Hooh! Aah!) (Hooh! Aah!)
(Hooh! Aah!) (Hooh! Aah!)
(Well, don't you know)

That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
All day long they work so hard
Till the sun is goin' down
Working on the highways and byways
And wearing, wearing a frown

You hear them moanin' their lives away
Then you hear somebody say
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
Can't ya hear them singin'
Mm, I'm goin' home one of these days

I'm goin' home, see my woman
Whom I love so dear
But meanwhile, I got to work right here
(Well, don't you know)

That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
All day long they're singin', mm
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my work is so hard
Give me water, I'm thirsty, my
My work is so hard
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my work is so hard
