Looking for a Job

 

APPEARS ON


You can't talk to me like that boss
I don't care who you are
If you don't want to have to hang your own dry wall
Don't push me too far

Boomtown work ain't hard to come by
Boomtown workers are
You might be the one running the show but
That don't mean you're in charge

I was looking for a job when I found this one
Don't need the work like you need the work done
You look like you're under pressure
I was looking for a job when I met you

I'm sharing a room with two guys over at the Motel 6 boss
Sending every dime I make here home to my ex-wife
Just did two years and 28 days
With a little better aim I'd been in there for my life

So you see, broke won't take much getting used to
Neither will a barb wire jail house wall
Watch what you say to someone with nothing
It's almost like having it all

I was looking for a job when I found this one
Don't need the work like you need the work done
You look like you're under pressure
I was already looking for a job two weeks ago when I met you, remember?

SPOKEN:
You know what I really ought to get is a job like you got, chief
You know
Driving around checking on guys like me
Yelling from the window of a pickup truck with the A/C cranked up and your clothes all nice and clean
Yeah
That might be nice
On the other hand
