What’s a little grease?

Nine to five?
But, what about the overtime?
God it is hot in here.
And, speaking of headaches.
Been a mechanic my whole life.
Then there’s the odd jobs.
You know, mowing lawns for a little extra cash.
Doing this.
Doing that.
What’s a little grease under your fingernails?
A little dirt on your forehead.
A little sweat on your cheek.
Always been a little tired.
A little worried.
A little stressed out about the bills.
And, oh yah, what about the rent?
Been laid off, fired, down sized, canned and – “We just gotta let you go.”
But, what about this.
And, what about that.
Well, I’m still a little tired.
A little worried.
And a little, “I aint getting no younger.”
Nine to five?
Well, what about the overtime?
The time spent.
The jobs done.
And don’t forget the headaches.
Besides, what’s a little grease under your fingernails?
