Trying to Make a Living Lyrics

Trying to Make a Living - Firehouse

Written by:Carl J. Snare/Bill Leverty

 

Well I woke up this mornin' pulled myself out of bed

 

I wish that I could sleep the day away

Just a day like any other same old thing over and over

 

I'm overworked and underpaid

 

And it's killin' me

 

Hey

 

Not even breakin' even work my fingers to the bone

Barely gettin' by keeps gettin' harder

 

I'm slavin' on the grindstone and I get no breaks at all

Tryin' to keep my head above the water

 

Can't make ends meet can't even save a dime

 

Feels like I spend my life workin' overtime

Tryin' to make a livin' gotta pay the rent

 

Just tryin' to make a livin' wonder where my money went

Never seem to get ahead it's getting' easier to see

 

Just tryin' to make a livin' and it's killin' me yea

 

Times are gettin' tough seems I never make enough

 

Doing what I can to stay alive

 

And I'd like to take a day off but I can't afford a layoff

I gotta keep this damn job to survive

 

Hey can't make ends meet I can't even save a dime

 

Feels like I spend my life workin' overtime

Tryin' to make a livin' gotta pay the rent

Just tryin' to make a livin' wonder where my money went

Never seem to get ahead it's getting' easier to see

Just tryin' to make a livin' and it's killin' me yea

 

Killin' me well yea

 

Ooh hoo yea yea

Tryin' to make a livin' gotta pay the rent

Just tryin' to make a livin' wonder where my money went

Never seem to get ahead it's gettin' easier to see

 

Just tryin' to make a livin'

Tryin' to make a livin'

Tryin' to make a livin' and it's killin' me yea

 

Killin' me
