[Verse 1]
He said, "Hard work never killed a man," and Grandpa oughta know
He must've walked a thousand miles down his old cornrow
Following behind the plow with an old mule called Jim
I don’t know who had a harder head, that old mule or him [Chorus]
"Wake up, boy, get out of bed, don't you think you've slept enough?
There’s lots of work a boy can do before the sun comes up!
There's cows to milk, a hog to feed, the chickens must be fed!
If the hard work's gonna kill you, boy, by now I would be dead."[Verse 2]
You can learn some lessons at the south end of a mule
Following thе plow all day will change your attitude
About the way you viеw life, how hard you work in school
His work was not to punish, but as a teaching tool[Chorus]
"Wake up, boy, get out of bed, don't you think you've slept enough?
There's lots of work a boy can do before the sun comes up!
There's cows to milk, a hog to feed, the chickens must be fed!
If the hard work's gonna kill you, boy, by now I would be dead."[Instrumental Interlude][Chorus]
"Wake up, boy, get out of bed, don’t you think you’ve slept enough?
There's lots of work a boy can do before the sun comes up!
There’s cows to milk, a hog to feed, the chickens must be fed!
If the hard work's gonna kill you, boy, by now I would be dead."
