Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call?
Well, you ain't so big, boy, you just tall, that's all

Well, you got me working, boss man, working 'round the clock

Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call?
Well, you ain't so big, boy, you just tall, and that is all

[interlude]

You just tall and that is all

Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call
Well, you ain't so big, boy, you're just tall, that's all

Well, I'm gonna get me a bossman, one gonna treat me right
Work hard in the day time, rest easy at night
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call?
Well, you ain't so big, boy, you're just tall, that's all
