“Requiem for a Working Man,” well, it's call to raise the minimal wage, and how the unemployed and the underemployed are disadvantage .
smacks of the ’60s.

lyrics

Requiem for a workingman
Danny Petroni@2014

Intro (Bass)

This is a story about a man name PC
The hardest workingman you ever see
He lost his job down in the factory
Because of some kind of out sorcery

Work hard
(Everyday and all-night)
Toil and trouble
(trou-ble)
Work like a mule
(Everyday and night)
Always finding struggle

But the wage-
(Wage)
Always stay the same

Work, work, work, work
Work, work, work, work
Work, work, work, work
Work, work, work, work

I know a girl name PJ
She works three jobs
To keep her babies fed
She works for minimal wage
Just to keep the landlord away

Work hard
(Everyday and all-night)
Toil and trouble
(trou-ble)
Work like a mule
(Everyday and night)
Always finding struggle

But the wage-
(Wage)
Always stay the same

Work, work, work, work
Work, work, work, work
Work, work, work, work
Work, work, work, work

The Blue Project Asbury Park, New Jersey

The Blue Project, Danny Petroni band and its self-titled first release, began as a reaction to hurricane Sandy. Work for Jersey Shore musicians was sparse after Sandy’s devastation: “Gigs cancelled, venues damaged, all music productions stopped in the immediate area.” Petroni’s idea was to create some work for local musicians with a locally produced blues record using his own original compositions ... more
