Computer Took My Job
Computer took my job away from me

Computer took my job away from me



I was at work that mornin'

When the big trucks came

With the big machines inside

My boss had us all gather 'round

He said "the computers gonna make,

they gonna make your work easier

Don't you worry 'bout a thing"

But don't you know, don't you know

When the work is too easy

Lord they don't need you no more



Computer took my job away from me



Then the layoffs came

Puttin' good people out of work

For some people it's the only work they know

Twenty long years I worked

I tried to live right

And they take it all away

Give the work back to the people

We don't need a handout



Computer took my job away from me

Computer took my job away from me

Play organ now... [organ solo by Leo Davis]

Oh yea



Seems like your best just ain't good enough

Give me my job

Give me back my job

Don't you let, don't you let the computer take it all away

Oh can't you see

Can't you see I need

Can't you see I need, need my job



Computer took my job away from me

(What you say, sonny?)

Computer took my job away from me

Computer took my job away

I need it baby

Give the work back to the people

We don't need a handout

Don't take my job away

Hmmmm...
