Dirty Work Lyrics

Steely Dan – Dirty Work Lyrics

from album: Can't Buy A Thrill (1972)
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 it's corner
In a medieval game
I foresee terrible trouble
And I stay here just the same
