I Aint Working

(Jim Stafford)

Written by Jim Stafford, this is the Flip side to his “I Got Stoned and I Missed It”, from the 1975 album, Not Just Another Pretty Foot.  Ostensibly a parody of a blues-rock song, and the title pretty much says it all.  Don’t adjust your turntable speed:  That’s Jim Stafford doing what he must have considered a funny voice.  The music is standard stuff:  a blues verse quickly gives way to a boogie-woogie chorus and Jim even manages to work in an homage to (or rip-off of) “Get a Job”.
