She works hard for the money, so you better treat her right!

„She works hard for the money … “ Der Song kam 1983 in die Charts. Die Musikerin und Autorin Donna Summer (*1948) schrieb ihn mit Michael Omartian.  Er handelt von einer wahren Begegnung zwischen dem afromamerikanischen Popstar und einer Frau, die sich mit mehreren Dienstleistungs-Jobs über Wasser hielt.  Donna Summer war vom Stolz, den die Frau ausstrahlte, beeindruckt:

She works hard for the money. So hard for it, honey (2 x)

So you better treat her right.

Onetta there in the corner stands and wonders where she is.

And it’s strange to her, some people seem to have everything.

9 am on the hour hand and she’s waiting for the bell.

And she’s looking real pretty. She’s waiting for her clientele.

She works hard for the money …

28 years have come and gone.

And she’s seen a lot of tears

of the ones who come in. They really seem to need her there.

It’s a sacrifice working day to day. For little money just tips for pay.

But it’s worth it all just to hear them say that they care.

She works hard for the money….

She already knows she’s seen her bad times.

She already knows these are the good times.

She’ll never sell out, she never will, not for a dollar bill.

She works hard for the money …
