lyrics

HE TOOK A RIDE TO THE CITY FOR NOTHING
HE LOOKED FOR JOBS BUT HE COULD NOT FIND ONE
AND THEN HE CRIED ON HIS MAMA’S SHOULDER
HE DROPPED FROM SCHOOL WHEN HE WAS YOUNG
AND NOW WHAT WAS HE GONNA DO
HE HAD TO FEED A FAMILY OF TWO
HE THEN WALKED TO HIS UNCLE, A BARBER
HE ASKED TO HELP CLEAN THE SHOP FOR A WHILE
HE GOT THE JOB FOR FIVE BUCKS AN HOUR
HE FELT HAPPY, HE WOULD SLEEP TONIGHT
TOMORROW HE WOULD STRUGGLE AGAIN
HE KNOWS THE RULES: NO PAIN, NO GAIN

HE TELLS ME
GIRL YOU BETTER STUDY
HE TELLS ME
GIRL YOU BETTER DO YOUR HOMEWORK TODAY
HE TELLS ME
GIRL YOU GET READY
YOU GOTTA WORK EXTRA HARD TO SEE A BETTER DAY
YOU GOTTA FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO PARTY IN LIFE
TIME IS SHORT, SO USE IT RIGHT

HE TELLS ME
GIRL YOU BETTER STUDY
HE TELLS ME
GIRL YOU BETTER DO YOUR HOMEWORK TODAY
HE TELLS ME
GIRL YOU GET READY
YOU GOTTA WORK EXTRA HARD TO SEE A BETTER DAY
YOU GOTTA FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO PARTY IN LIFE
YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE, DON’T LOSE YOUR SIGHT

BRIDGE
YOU KNOW THERE IS SOMETHING
WHEN YOU’RE WORKING YOU’LL HAVE LUCK
DON’T LET SNEAKY PLEASURES TAKE AWAY
THE GIFTS YOU’VE GOT
YOUTH WILL FLY AWAY
BUT YOU’LL ALWAYS HAVE YOUR BRAINS

HE TELLS ME
GIRL YOU BETTER STUDY
HE TELLS ME
GIRL YOU BETTER DO YOUR HOMEWORK TODAY
HE TELLS ME
GIRL YOU GET READY
YOU GOTTA WORK EXTRA HARD TO SEE A BETTER DAY
YOU GOTTA FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO PARTY IN LIFE
TIME IS SHORT, SO USE IT RIGHT

INSTR. SOLO
