Song of the Day: Andy Gullahorn

From Gullahorn’s website: “I say this is the love song to my hat. It was also a way to complain about lazy music industry people – but that is not as endearing.”

NOBODY WANTS TO WORK

It took me ten good years to break in this old hat It has a black sweat ring and the bill is cracked It’s all frayed in the front and duct taped in the back There’s so much that this hat has been through

In the window of the Abercrombie store There’s a product line I’m sure you’ve seen before Brand new baseball caps made to look already worn What is this world coming to

Nobody wants to work Nobody wants to work for it If it don’t come easy, it ain’t worth the wait Nobody wants to work Nobody wants to work for it Welcome to the new old-fashioned way

I love the music that I grew up on When the business was all about the song These days it’s just one throw up against the wall If you don’t stick, that’s it – you’re through

Nobody wants to work Nobody wants to work for it If it don’t come easy, it ain’t worth the wait Nobody wants to work Nobody wants to work for it Welcome to the new old-fashioned way

I see it all the time In the cardboard sign That says I won’t work for food But I’d be happy to take your dime Or the billboard for A quick and cheap divorce We don’t try to fix anything anymore

Nobody wants to work Nobody wants to work for it If it don’t come easy, it ain’t worth the wait Nobody wants to work Nobody wants to work for it Welcome to the new old-fashioned way
