Meaning of WORK YOUR BUTT OFF – A Really Short English Lesson with Subtitles


READ ALONG TO PRACTICE YOUR ENGLISH AND TO LEARN THE MEANING OF WORK YOUR BUTT OFF: So when you live on a farm you have to work your butt off. This is a slang saying that means to work really, really hard, and you’ll want to be careful when you use it because the word “butt” refers to, you know the part of your body at the top of your legs and below your back and if you work really, really hard you are described as working your butt off. If you work on a farm, if you live on a farm you tend to work your butt off because a lot of the work that we do is difficult work. It’s work that you have to do with your hands. There isn’t always machines to do the work that we do on the farm. In the next couple of days we’ll be doing a lot of hay on the farm and we’ll be working our butts off.
