Lyrics

There are girls that some men will slave for To provide the things that they pay for Why do you think work is a four-letter word Loving you is driving me crazy People say that you were born lazy 'Cause you think that work is a four-letter word

Don't waste your life There is so much I know you can do Let me see you wide awake And take on the world that is waiting for you

If you cry I'll be right behind you And my love will help to remind you To forget that work is a four letter word

I don't want a house that's a show place I just feel that we're getting no place While you say that work is a four-letter word

Don't waste your life There is so much I know you can do Let me see you wide awake And take on the world that is waiting for you

If you cry I'll be right behind you And my love will help to remind you To forget that work is a four letter word

I don't want a house that's a show place I just feel that we're getting no place While you say that work is a four-letter word Four-letter word!
