Lyrics:

 ^ (Hooh, aah, hooh, aah) I hear somethin' sayin'
(Hooh, aah, hooh, aah) x2
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang x2

All day long they're singin' (hooh, aah, hooh, aah)
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang x2

All day long they work so hard, till the sun is goin' down
Working on the highways and byways, and wearing, wearing a frown
You hear them moanin' their lives away, then you hear somebody say
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang x2

Can't ya hear them singin', mm, I'm goin' home one of these days
I'm goin' home see my woman, whom I love so dear
But meanwhile I got to work right here
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang x2

All day long they're singin'
Mm, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my work is so hard
Give me water, I'm thirsty, my work is so hard
Mm, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my work is so hard
Give me water, I'm thirsty, my work is so hard
