lyrics

governor matt bevin is stealing it away
we're not gonna take it anymore

it's pay day in kentucky
we ain't got much and what little we've got
kentucky creationist tea party
governor matt bevin is stealing it away
we're not gonna take it anymore

it’s pay day in kentucky
i hear cars and trucks rumbling across the usa
i hear lost souls grumbling louder every night every day
we're not gonna take it anymore

it’s pay day in kentucky
but weeks they never end for us
we work 2 jobs sometimes 3 we get paid minimum wage
we're not gonna take it anymore

it’s pay day in kentucky
yesterday before the end of shift the boss
stopped by to say in 2 weeks he’s laying us off
we're not gonna take it any more

it’s pay day in kentucky
3 slices of bologna 2 crackers no mustard no tea
the refrigerator quit working but who cares there’s no electricity
we're not gonna take it anymore

it’s pay day in kentucky
the preacher says give me 10% cause i’m the voice of god
while he’s sleeping with 3 women and 2 men in the congregation
we're not gonna take it anymore

it’s pay day in kentucky
the government takes nearly half of all our pay
everywhere we turn it’s tax tax tax they take it all away
we're not gonna take it anymore

it’s pay day in kentucky
weeks never end for us there are no weekends anymore
we do all we can to hold our heads up but we're ready to walk out the door
we're not gonna take it anymore

it's pay day in kentucky
we ain't got much and what little we've got
kentucky creationist tea party
governor matt bevin is stealing it away
we're not gonna take it anymore
