By working faithfully eight hours a day you may eventually get to be boss and work twelve hours a day.
Robert Frost

Common sense is genius dressed in its working clothes.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty but when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.
R. Buckminster Fuller

You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to love by loving.
Anatole France

It's when we start working together that the real healing takes place... it's when we start spilling our sweat, and not our blood.
David Hume

Ain't No Bread in the Breadbox
By: Norton Buffalo

There ain't no bread in the breadbox
Cause we ain't got no dough
And it seems like we ain't got enough time
To go foolin' round no more
You been workin' so hard for oh so long
What've you got to show
Open up your eyes little darlin'
Let's pack up the things and go
Open up your eyes little darlin'
Don't wanna live here no more
Open up your eyes little darlin'
We been here for far too long
Open up your eyes little darlin'
It's time to move along.

It was late into December
On a cold and wintery day
I'd just finished bringing wood into the kitchen
When I heard my Amanda say
She said, "Elijah
You'd better look around
Things ain't like they used to be
The times been hard on you and me
Wake up daddy it's time to shake things down"

Because there ain't no bread in the breadbox
Cause we ain't got no dough
And it seems like we ain't got enough time
To go foolin' round no more
You been workin' so hard for oh so long
What do you got to show
Open up your eyes little darlin'
Let's pack up the things and go
Open up your eyes little darlin'
I don't wanna live here no more
Open up your eyes little darlin'
We've been here for far too long
Open up your eyes little darlin'
It's time to move along

There ain't no bread in the breadbox
Cause we ain't got no dough
And it seems like we ain't got enough time
To go foolin' round no more
You been workin' so hard for oh so long
What do you got to show
Open up your eyes little darlin'
Let's pack up the things and go
Open up your eyes little darlin'
I don't wanna live here no more
Open up your eyes little darlin'
We've been here for far too long
Open up your eyes little darlin'
It's time to move along

What you say ...
I said ...
There ain't no bread in the breadbox
Cause we ain't got no dough
And it seems like we ain't got enough time
To go foolin' round no more
You been workin' so hard for oh so long
What do you got to show
Open up your eyes little darlin'
Let's pack up the things and go
Open up your eyes little darlin'
I don't wanna live here no more
Open up your eyes little darlin'
We've been here for far too long
Open up your eyes little darlin'
It's time to move along

Good ones for Labor Day - that song is sadly so appropriate for our times, enjoy the Holiday just the same!
