Lyrics of

Dirty work

View the transcriptions
	
Times are hard, you're afraid to pay the fee
So you find yourself somebody who can do the job for free
When you need a bit of lovin' 'cause your man is out of town
That's the time you get me runnin' and you know I'll be around

I'm a fool to do your dirty work oh yeah
I don't wanna do your dirty work no more
I'm a fool to do your dirty work oh yeah

Light the candle, put the lock upon the door
You have sent the maid home early like a thousand times before
Like the castle in his corner in a medieval game
I foresee terrible trouble but I stay here just the same
