(Verse 1)

Lord’ save me from this run around

Been shopping my resume all over town

I got my degree but I can’t find a job

Standin’ all day long in a hungry mob

(Chorus)

Buttondown blues

Got me shaking

Look what a toll it’s takin,

Oh’ my head is achin,

Come on, baby come’ baby come to me

Is it any wonder I can survive

Livin’ this life of mine nine to five

Your lovin’ keeps me alive

With these Buttondown Blues

(Verse 2)

Just got me a boss ooo he cuts to the quick

Chip on his shoulder, he’s got a bone to pick

Chews me out, everyday of the week

(Verse 3)

Can’t win for losin’, thought I paid my dues

I’d never be choosin, these Buttondown Blues,

I need a winnin’ number, gotta break this losin’ streak

(Chorus)

Buttondown blues

Got me shaking

Look what a toll it’s takin,

Oh’ my head is achin,

Come on, baby come’ baby come to me

Is it any wonder I can survive

Livin’ this life of mine nine to five

Your lovin’ keeps me alive

With these Buttondown Blues

(Instrumental) over the verse and first half of chorus

I said is it’ is it’ any wonder I can survive

Livin this life of mine nine to five

Your lovin’ keeps me alive

With these Buttondown Blues
