I head this song circa 1960 on Wayne Raney's WCKY Jamboree. I don't know who sang it, and all I remember is the chorus:

Work, work, work-work-work.
Seems like that's all I do.
Work, work, work-work-work,
It's rough, I'm telling you,
And it seems to me the more I work,
The poorer I become.
If I keep on working hard
Some day I'll be a bum.

Anyone recognize it?

Subject: Lyr Add: WORK WORK WORK (from Lee Dorsey)

Probably not the same song, but interesting, nonetheless. This is early R&B:

As sung by Lee Dorsey, 1965

(Work, work, work)
(Work, work, work)

1. I look for a job both day an' night.
I can't find nothin' that will suit me right.
A little bit o' labor i'm not tryin' to shirk,
But ev'rything i found seems too much like work.

CHORUS: (Work, work, work)
What you talkin' 'bout?
(Work, work, work)
Are you talkin' to me?
(Work, work, work)
(Work, work, work)
Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Does anybody here know somebody
Who needs somebody who wants somebody to love?
(Love, love, love)
Now you talkin' now.
(Love, love, love)

2. I need a little spendin' change ev'ry now and then.
I ain't seen a quarter since who-knows-when.
I asked my friends if they could spare a little cash,
But all they ever do is stand around an' talk trash
