WHAT MAKES A LINEMAN: WHAT MAKES LIKES A LINEMAN I REALLY DON'T KNOW, SOME SAY WE WERE BORN THIS WAY, TO PUT ON A SHOW. WE DRINK CHEW AND SMOKE AND TELL LOTS OF JOKES, AND WE GET THE LIGHTS BACK ON FOR ALL THE GOOD FOLKS. WE WORK TILL ITS DONE AND SOMETIMES  ITS HARD, BUT WE'VE ALSO BEEN KNOWN TO PLAY US CARDS. WE CLIMB POLES, WORK IT HOT AND RUN OUR BIG TRUCKS, AND EVERY NOW AND THEN BEEN KNOWN TO THROW A STIPPER SOME BUCKS. WE GO BACK AND FORTH LIKE THE WAVES OF THE TIDE, AND WE'LL DAMN SURE FIGHT YOU IF YOU CHALLANGE OUR PRIDE. HANDS COME IN ALL SIZES SOME SKINNY , SOME FAT, BUT WE'RE ALL INDIVIDULES, YOU CAN BET YOUR ASS ON THAT. SOME WHO ARE SHORT, SOME WHO ARE TALL, BUT IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER, WE JUST TRY NOT TO FALL. SOME THINK WE'RE DUMB AND SOME THINK THEY'RE SMART, BUT WE CAN ONLY BE MEASURED BY THE SIZE OF OUR  HEART. SO WHEN THE BIG G.F. CALLS ME HOME IN THE SKY, WE'LL SIT DOWN, HAVE A DRINK, AND THEN ASK HIM WHY?  UNION LINEMAN
