The Lyrics


This here’s a story about Useless Joe and Lazy Sue
Two young loafers with nothin’ skillful they knew
They Googled all the sites, and tried to find some work
And here is what happened when they found that “Ahnold” jerk

They headed down to-- ooh “Sacra-hustle”
That’s when they ran into that great big “muscle”
Useless Joe got a gig, which was a puzzle
Lazy Sue got a government job

Got on, got a government job
Big con, got a government job
Got on, got a government job
Big con, got a government job

Gloria is a big lawyer that’s a news whore
You know she sues so people can abuse more
She ain’t just gonna let those two just get paychecks
They dis-abled so she thinks they are due more

Lazy Sue, whoa whoa, she took the stand
Useless Joe, he hurt himself and got 20 grand
They got the money, hey
You know they got their pay
They headed down south to live in good old L.A.
Saying, we gone, got a government job

We gone, got a government job
Got on, got a government job
Big con, got a government job
Got on, got a government job
Big con, got a government job
We gone, we the government rob
