Don't Bug Me When I'm Working
written by Ry Cooder / John Hiatt / Jim Keltner / Nick Lowe

Don't bug me when I'm working,
I'm working, I'm working
Don't bug me when I'm working,
Got a job to do
Don't bug me when I'm working,
I'm working, I'm working
Don't bug me when I'm working
I don't work for you

If you bug me at work
I can't get it done
Too tired, baby,
To have any fun
If you got complaints, better keep 'em hid
Don't come 'round here and mess with the kid

Don't bug me when I'm sleepin'
I'm sleepin', I'm sleepin'
Don't bug me when I'm sleepin'
'Cause I need my rest
Don't bug me when I'm working
I'm working, I'm working
Don't bug me when I'm working
Got to buzz awhile
I said don't bug me hen I'm working,
I'm working, I'm working
Don't bug me when I'm working
I don't work for you
Don't bug me when I'm sleepin'
I'm sleepin', I'm sleepin'
Don't bug me when I'm sleepin'
Got work to do

Now you bug me at home
When I'm tired and beat
Can't even stand on my own two feet
You call on the phone, you make me uptight
And I can't even work, with my baby at night

Don't bug me when I'm working
I'm working, I'm working
Don't bug me when I'm working
Got a job to do
Don't bug me when I'm working
I'm working, I'm working
Don't bug me when I'm working
I don't work for you

Don't bug me
'Cause I don't work for you
Don't bug me
Mister I don't work for you
Don't bug me, don't bug me
'Cause I don't work for you
