Hataraku Otoko was the theme song for the TV adaptation of the manga "Hatarakiman." The cover art for the single is based on the artwork from the original manga. According to J-ENT! and SANSPO.com Ami and Yumi did voice acting for the show (picture).

Japanese Lyrics

Shigoto dekiru otoko sore ga kanojo no konomi
Kiai irete tsutometa no daga
Isogashii wa tsumannai wa

Ima no kaisha kanari reberu takai hou da shi
Oyaji garami no kone mo aru kara
Yameru wakyanai shi

Itsumo boku wa hitorikiri
Furo ni haitte neru dake

Tamai ofisu de denwa kane tara kanojo no koega
Isoge shinno wa jibun daketo omou naide yamashii naide

Nagameru koto sae dekinai
Kimi no kami wo aruku sugata wo
Nemuru koto shika dekinai
Semete yume no naka de demo
Kimi ni aitai!

Itsumo boku wa hitorikiri
Furo ni haitte neru dake
Itsumo boku wa hitorikiri
Ashita no dame ni neru dake

Itsumo boku wa hitorikiri
Itsumo boku wa hitorikiri

Nagameru koto sae dekinai
Kimi no kami wo aruku sugata wo
Nemuru koto shika dekinai
Semete yume no naka de demo

Omoi dasu totoga dekinai
Kimi no hagaka wo tobireru koe wo
Nemuru koto shika dekinai
Semete yume no naka de demo
