lyrics

Wake up at five in the morn' to start working on the day

Being up before the sun is born feels like you're slaving away

Get home just past eight and I take off my boots to relax

Put on those slow songs, the ones you listen to when life gets too fast

These days I think of my father

And what he gave up so we could get by

Work one job then another and how we never heard him sigh

Granddad who survived war and factories

Told my father way back when

Ain't no thing as dishonorable work, son

Only dishonorable men

As a first gen. American, who am I to complain

I had it easier than them

I'll never know their pains

And that dream that was promised, the one they changed our name for

I'm gonna find it

I owe 'em that much and more

Granddad who survived war and factories

Told my father way back when

Ain't no thing as dishonorable work, son

Only dishonorable men

So who am I to complain, I had it easier than them

Ain't no thing as dishonorable work

Only dishonorable men

Only dishonorable men
