My pop showed this to me a little while ago. I've known the Devo version for years, but I had never heard this one before.

Have completely over-committed myself with work this month but never mind, at least - unlike my ancestors - I don't have to work in a coal mine. Or a chippy. Hurrah.   2

This well-known track was written and arranged by Allen Toussaint. In 1966, Lee Dorsey became the first to record the song, which was released on AMY records in the U.S. It reached the top ten on both the Billboard hot 100 and R&B charts.   4
