song of the day

dirty jobs
dedicated to all the people he's met with dirty jobs
(from mike rowe's dirty jobs)

damn this thing is long

---

now everyone who's got a job has got his dues to pay
working for a paycheck and getting through the day
but if you're bored or otherwise inclined to be a slob
grab some boots and lose that suit and get a dirty job

fight a fire or tread a tire or ride a garbage truck
save a seal or mix a meal or manage miles of muck
misbehave inside a cave with forty million bats
find some friendly roaches in a sewer filled with rats

dirty jobs they're everywhere just take a look around
down the street or up the stairs or even underground
you don't need to borrow beg and you don't need to rob
all you've got to do is get yourself a dirty job
all you've got to do is get yourself a dirty job

smelly loads and foul commodes all need to be addressed
chimney sweeps and chicks that beep can make an awful mess
wrangle herds of cranky birds that bite and kick and stomp
mine for gold or dig a hole or navagate a swap

dig for clams or handle ham or work with stinging bees
clean a dump or lift a pump or labor out at sea
run a rig or chase a pig find vomit from an owl
change your course and shoe a horse or reach inside a cow

dirty jobs they're everywhere just take a look around
down the street or up the stairs or even underground
you don't need to borrow beg and you don't need to rob
all you've got to do is get yourself a dirty job
all you've got to do is get yourself a dirty job

cleaning skulls collecting balls or working down a drain
killing bugs or picking spuds or separating grain
sweat and toil or drill for oil or tear apart a float
pull a teat or chip concrete or shave an ornery goat

drive a nail replace a rail or disembowel a fish
tackle grime or grow some slime inside a petri dish
tar a roof or clean a hoof or handle posion toads
brew some beer or drag a deer across a busy road

dirty jobs they're everywhere just take a look around
down the street or up the stairs or even underground
you don't need to borrow beg and you don't need to rob
all you've got to do is get yourself a dirty job
all you've got to do is get yourself a dirty job

now dirty jobs don't guarantee a great big pile of loot
there ain't no perks or fancy cars or golden parachutes
the pension plan is also ran the pay is far from rich
but dirty jobs will keep you far from office politics

so don't be scared or unprepared to tackle something rank
pick up gum or have some fun inside a septic tank
don't begrudge a little sludge or working in a pit
but always ask to wear your mask when cleaning pigeon shit

dirty jobs they're everywhere just take a look around
down the street or up the stairs or even underground
you don't need to borrow beg and you don't need to rob
all you've got to do is get yourself a dirty job
all you've got to do is get yourself a dirty job
