You get the job done

Back to Album listing


If they asked you
You’d pull down the stars
And snuff them one by one
You get the job done
You get the job done

You’d swing your hammer
Till the end of the world
Cos that’s the team you’re on
You get the job done
You get the job done

You say I’d stand with the angels
But they don’t represent me
I’m thinking right but I’m doing wrong
It’s just the way it’s got to be

Tell me what you want
You’ll get it on a plate
I’m just a hired gun
I get the job done
I get the job done

Here in the compound you’ve been happy for a while
Did you think it came from a wink and a smile?
And by just being friendly to everyone?
I get the job done.

There’s an ugly mob chanting outside the city gate
They’re hoping for a death worse than fate
No pity in their hearts - so they will find none
No, they will find none

So drink to the bad girls wherever they may be
And drink to the bad men who’re keeping you free
We’ll never get a medal, or thanks from anyone,
But we get the job done

I’d like to vote for the angels
But they don’t represent me
I’m thinking right but I’m doing wrong
It’s just the way it’s got to be

Tell me what you want
You’ll get it on a plate
I’m just a hired gun
I get the job done
I get the job done
