Shovel Ready Jobs

Shovel Ready Jobs

Josh and Jeb
Both applied
For Shovel Ready Jobs
They liked workin outside

Josh said “we really
Got the juice
When we had to shovel gravel
Into this sluice”

“To make some
Rich entrepreneur
Richer
That’s for sure.”

Come on Josh
This ain’t bad pay
Sovelin rocks for
A buck a day

We won’t get rich
But come sundown
We will be able
To paint the town

Get likkered up
Maybe a gal or two
See what this shovelin job
Can do for you.
