about

the first single, from the first album, from the Oakland Wine Drinkers Union.

You've heard the old adage, right? "Drink is the curse of the working classes." Oscar Wilde turned that on its head and said: "Work is the curse of the drinking classes." 100+ years later, OWDU agreed with Mr. Wilde, and wrote a fist-in-the-air singalong about it.

lyrics

I'd rather be at the bar than slaving all day
It's too bad I've got bills to pay
Don't wanna punch the clock or kiss no one's ass
Work is the curse of the drinking class

Work is the curse of the drinking class
Work is the curse of the drinking class
Quit your job and raise your glass
Work is the curse of the drinking class

I'm so tired of working for the man
I just wanna play my songs and get drunk when I can
Do I want a promotion? No thanks, I'll pass
Work is the curse of the drinking class

Work is the curse of the drinking class
Work is the curse of the drinking class
Quit your job and raise your glass
Work is the curse of the drinking class

Whether you're a bricklayer or a corporate cog
Your drinking time is what the bosses hog
Do yourself a favor - make today your last
Work is the curse of the drinking class

Work is the curse of the drinking class
Work is the curse of the drinking class
Quit your job and raise your glass
Work is the curse of the drinking class
