It's My Job!!!

"In the middle of late last night, I was sittin' on a curb
I didn't know what about, but I was feelin' quite disturbed
A street sweeper came whistlin' by, he was bouncin' every step
It seemed strange how good he felt, so I asked him while he swept

He said "It's my Job, to be cleaning up this mess, and that's enough reason to go for me"
"It's my job, to be better than the rest, and that makes a day for me

I got an Uncle who owns a bank, he's a self-made Millionaire
He never had anyone to love, never had noone to care
He always seem kinda sad to me, and I asked him why that was
And he told me it's because ... in my contract there's this clause

That says "It's my job, to be worried half to death, and that's the thing people respect in me"
"It's my job, but without it I'd be less than what I expect from me"

Now, I've been lazy most all my life, writin' songs and sleepin' late
And any manual labor I've done was purely by mistake
If street sweepers can smile, then I've got no right to feel upset
But sometimes I still forget...
Til the lights go on, and the stage is set, and the song hits home, and you feel that sweat

"It's my job, to be different than the rest, and that's enough reason to go for me"
"It's my job, to be better than the rest, and that makes a day for me"
