Song Description

Our arrangement offers a backhanded, disillusioned celebration of a working man's retirement.

Story Behind the Song

Theme song for a blue-collar sitcom.


I put in thirty-five years workin' 9 to 5.
Been in dozens o' fights, never took no dive,
And now that it's over, I got out alive.
So, where's my happy ending?

I was a company man for all o' those years,
And I gave 'em what I had: blood, sweat and tears.
Now there's just me alone with a couple o' beers.
So, where's my happy ending?

(Bridge) There are those who say ev'ry dog has his day,
But mine seems to be long overdue.
Just keep ploddin' along, and singin' my song.
It ain't 'xactly my dream come true.

Water's under the bridge, and I'm over the hill.
To tell ya the truth, I've had more than my fill.
Nothin' new at all, just run-of-the-mill.
Seems there ain't gonna be no happy ending!
