Title: Big Boss Man
Al Smith/Luther Dixon
 
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call?
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call?
Can't you hear me when I call?
Well you ain't so big, you know you're just tall that's all, All right
Well you got me workin' boss man
Workin' round the clock
I wanna little drink of water
But you won't let big Al stop
Big boss man now can't you hear me when I call? All right
I said you ain't so big, you know you're just tall that's all

Big boss man, why can't you hear me when I call? All right
You know you ain't so big, I said you're just tall that's all, All right
I'm gonna get me a boss man
One who's gonna treat me right
I work hard in the day time
Rest easy at night
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call? Can't you hear me when I call?
I said you ain't so big, you're just tall that's all
I'm gonna get me a boss man
One that's gonna treat me right
I work hard in the evenin'
Rest easy at night
Big boss man, big boss man, can't you hear me when I call?
I said you ain't so big, you're just tall that's all
All right, big boss man
It's all right

Big Boss Man (song)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Big Boss Man" is a popular blues song written by Luther Dixon and Al Smith in 1960. It was released by Jimmy Reed in 1961. It also has a crossover appeal, having been covered by many country and rock artists.

Reed's recordings of "Big Boss Man" and "Bright Lights, Big City" were both voted onto the list of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. Reed's wife, Mama Reed, appears as an uncredited background singer on both of these songs.

Elvis Presley recorded a version of the song on September 10, 1967. It was released on a single the same month, backed with "You Don't Know Me", and reached #38 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was then used in the "Road Medley" of his '68 Comeback Special and then performed on numerous occasions in his 1970s performances.

The song has also been covered by many other artists, including Frank Frost, The Animals, Big Jack Johnson, Koko Taylor, Alan Price, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich, Conway Twitty, The Syndicate of Sound, John Hammond, Bobby Gentry, Nancy Sinatra, The Grateful Dead, Steve Miller, The Pretty Things, David Bowie, The Kentucky Headhunters and Holly Golightly.

The song, as performed by reggae artist, Junior Reid, was featured in the film Office Space.
