The Lyrics

I did this one in a hurry...
I'm always lookin real hard
And I try to find a job
But it just keeps gettin tougher every day
The government promised, I think there's something amiss
The only jobs open are a $2 pay

Well I'm gettin quite nervous
With no op'nings for service
Cuz I need a job to pay the tax
But with 2 dollars pay what will my image portray
To my kids who have half dollar knicknacks

I'm unemployed right now baby
I'm unemployed right now baby
I'm unemployed right now baby
I'm unemployed right now baby

I went to Phoenix and Miami
And back to Alabamy
Philadelphia New York and LA
No one had a job that could give me money
So I could live life on the stretch that's sunny

I'm unemployed right now baby
I'm unemployed right now baby
I'm unemployed right now baby
I'm unemployed right now baby
Baby baby baby
Unemployed
Unemplyed baby
I'm unemployed
Unemployed baby

I'm getting frightened
Maybe I'm not enlightened
Cuz I cant find a nice job around
But with 2 dollars pay what will my image portray
To my kids who have half dollar knicknacks

I went to Phoenix and Miami
And back to Alabamy
Philadelphia New York and LA
No one had a job that could give me money
So I could live life on the stretch that's sunny

I'm unemployed right now baby
I'm unemployed right now baby
I'm unemployed right now baby
I'm unemployed unemployed unemployed
Baby baby baby
I'm unemployed right now baby
I'm unemployed right now baby
I'm unemployed right now baby
