This song was written by Randy Bachman, who also sang lead on the track. He explained to classicbands.com that he came up with the idea for the song in the late-’60s while he was still a member of The Guess Who. Bachman loved Paperback Writer by The Beatles, and he used that music to create a song about going to work called White Collar Worker, which needed a new hook to complete. The song lay dormant until Bachman formed Bachman-Turner Overdrive.
