Work : Work, Work, Work

Lee Dorsey: Work, Work, Work


If you're looking for motivation this Monday, you've come too the wrong place. Allen Toussaint and Lee Dorsey, the New Orleans team that gave us the Top 10 hit "Working in the Coalmine", actually recorded this cut a year earlier for Dorsey's Ride Your Pony album in 1966.

I look for a job both day and night
 I can't find nothin' that will suit me right
A little bit of nerve I'm not tryin' to shake
But everything I've found seems too much like work

The following year, Lee was still looking for a job.
