The Lyrics

Get a job you lazy bum
You’ll get paid when you are done
Throw those stupid signs away
Don’t you beg no more

I once gave you cash because you looked so depressing
Then you jumped up and then started singing
My ears were hurting very badly
And at last you stopped
Though you got a job you still are a poor man
You work at Wal-Mart, so you must be a dumb man
I can see you on the corner, begging
Can’t you hear the people say

Get a job you lazy bum
You’ll get paid when you are done
Throw those stupid signs away
Don’t you beg no more

As irritating as a man with a tumor
A parade is the feast of the season
And if you claim that you’re disabled
It surely means that you can act
On a noisy street of cop cars and gun shots
Duck and hide behind a building that rots
You’ll never get on Wheel of Fortune
Can’t you hear the people say

Get a job you lazy bum
You’ll get paid when you are done
Throw those stupid signs away
Don’t you beg no more
No!

Get a job, you will work very hard
Get a job, you’re a really stupid retard
Now your job’s no longer boring
Surely payment waits for you

Get a job you lazy bum
You’ll get paid when you are done
Throw those stupid signs away
Don’t you beg (don’t you beg no more)

Smeg And The Heads - December 13, 2007 - Report this comment
Couple of minor pacing issues but overall very good. I think it should be printed and handed out to all the strapping youths with their hands out on practically every street corner in downtown Vancouver.
