lyrics

Oh we wait, oh we wait
We will wait till the break of darn
And I’ll work, for the grain
I will carry this weight on

Oh my hands, they are tired
My body, it aches
For 500 hours to be done
Oh the day grows me weary, the night seems so long
And I’ll carry this weight on

If you ask me to wait for 500 hours
I will wait till the break of dawn
And I’ll wait, and I’ll work
And we’ll count them down together
500 hours

I know, I can’t help myself
When we throw our cards out on the table
I know now, of the lessons learned
It’s a simple story, not a fable
