Maybe you collect or maybe you pay (whether) Still got to work that eight hour day Whether you like that job or not Youd better keep it on ice while youre lining up your long shot
Which is to say, hey hey, keep your day job Don't give it away, keep your day job, whatever they say Keep your day job till your night job pays.
Steady boys starting that eight day hour Never underrate that paycheck power By now you know that the face on your dollar Got a thumb on its nose and a hand on your collar With a chance to say, hey hey, keep your day job....
Daddy may drive a v-8 vette Mama may bathe in champagne yet God bless the child that's got his own stash Nine to five and a place to crash Which is to say... Sunday comes forget about work, ring that bell for whatever its worth. If you ask me like I know you wont Ill tell you what to do what I know that you wont.
