The Lyrics

The earnings sag, downsize, my plight.
Fearful coward, that I am.
And I'm gonna need hired help to fire some men.

My crew, they earn too much, the budget's tight.
The only out is plain.
I'm not the firing type.

And I think I'm gonna need a strong, strong guy,
A tough lout slinging out the grim good-byes.
I'm not the man to swing the axe at plant,
Oh, no, no, no, need a hatchet man.
Hatchet man, purging out the crew I fear to can.

And I think I'm gonna need a strong, strong guy,
A tough lout winking out at men who cry.
A rotten man that thinks I'm in command.
Oh, so, so, so evil, hatchet man.
Hatchet man, purging out the crew I fear to can.

I ain't the kind to face the mates with kids.
They're apt to scold and yell.
And it's no fun chore to make them hit the skids.

I sulk in silence, I must craft a plan.
Don't want the job, I'm shy and need
A hatchet man, a hatchet man.

And I think I'm gonna need a strong, strong guy,
A tough lout slinging out the grim good-byes.
A rotten man that thinks I'm in command.
Oh, no, no, no, need a hatchet man.
Hatchet man, purging out the crew I fear to can.

Now I think I'll have to be a strong, strong guy,
The tough lout's stinky rout was done just fine.
I've got to can the man I hired, as planned,
Oh no, no, no, fire the hatchet man.
Hatchet man, purging out a dude I fear to can.

Now I think I'll have to be a strong, strong guy.
Now I think I'll have to be a strong, strong guy.
Now I think I'll have to be a strong, strong guy.
Now I think I'll have to be a strong, strong guy.
Now I think I'll have to be a strong, strong guy.
Now I think I'll have to be a strong, strong guy.
Now I think I'll have to be a strong, strong guy.
Now I think I'll have to be a strong, strong guy.
