Song Description

Polish / Slovenian style polka, complete with trumpets, accordion, and concertina, with a male vocal. Subject matter is unemployment in America's rustbelt.

Story Behind the Song

Here in the rustbelt of America, heavy industry unions were king ... a long time ago. And since so much of that industry has closed shop, a typical conversation starter is "Are you working?" Of course, if you answer "Yes," the follow-up question always seems to be, "Who got you that job?" This song pokes a little fun at the serious topic of unemployment, all to a great polka beat!

Lyrics

"Are You Workin' Polka"

I was driving in my car
I was thirsty for a beer
I stopped down at the Slovak Club
Because it's close to here

I laid my money down
So I could drink away
Before I even turned around
I heard somebody say

Hey John, Are You Workin'?
Hey John, Are You Workin'?
Hey John, Are You Workin'?
Who got you that job?

It wasn't always like this
Said my buddy, Bill
We all used to have good jobs
Workin' at the mill

But the mill closed up its doors
We don't work there no more
They took away our real good pay
And moved to China's shore

Hey John, Are You Workin'?
Hey John, Are You Workin'?
Hey John, Are You Workin'?
Who got you that job?
