WORKING

I’ve been working
All my days
Took every job
That came my way
Spent the money that I made
I get old, but oh, I don’t age
I seem to smile
But I feel the rage

And I bow and scrape
No more
Self deprecate
No more
No more will I make
The same mistakes I made before

Teacher told me
To behave
Daddy taught me
To be brave
Supervisor pays my wage
He may work
But oh, he don’t slave
I see the light
But I feel the cage

And I bow and scrape
No more
Self deprecate
No more
No more will I make
The same mistakes I made before

Lately I’ve been pulling doubles
Keeping out of trouble, when I can
Thoughts are running through my brain
Though I try I can’t explain
What makes a man a man…oh…

Love to gamble, hate to shave
Live to ramble, not to bathe
My lady loves me just the same
We make love and oh…they complain
She knows my melodies
I sing her refrains

And I bow and scrape
No more
Self deprecate
No more
No more will I make
The same mistakes I made before

Muhammad Seven Boston, Massachusetts

Muhammad Seven is an Iranian-American singer/songwriter from Boston. His narrative lyricism pays as much homage to Hafiz and Saadi as it does to Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, with deeply personal and political statements nestled amongst metaphors and vivid specificity. You might also listen carefully for the unmistakable influence of ‘90’s era hip-hop. ... more
