Everybody's Got a Job to Do

This song is by Bob Neuwirth.

They say everybody's got a job to do, well it looks like I just got fired
I was making my way back home to you, thought I had the whole thing wired
Suddenly I hear a voice in my hear saying "wait a minute, not so fast"
A man makes plans that knocks him flat and God sits back and laughs

If I don't make it home for Christmas, it don't mean I don't care
If I can't get leave by by new year's eve make believe that I'm not there
If I don't fly by by the 4th of July, it don't signify that I can't sigh
Only that I'm trying to clear my mind and it's tough through all of these tears

You may not want that blind folk, when they lead you to the wall
You may need to read the writing there before you take the fall
You might regret the last cigarette when it all goes up in smoke
And the voice in your hear says "hey in there, you finally get the joke"

If I don't make it home for Christmas, it don't mean I don't care
If I can't get leave by by new year's eve make believe that I'm not there
If I don't fly by by the 4th of July, it don't signify that I can't sigh
Only that I'm trying to clear my mind and it's tough through all of these tears

Woke up underneath the tree last year feeling just a little bit flat
Seems everybody's got a special gift, mine has come unwrapped
And I heard that voice in my ear again, this time it seemed to say
"Anything that you really want to keep, first you got a learn to give it away"

If I don't make it home for Christmas, it don't mean I don't care
If I can't get leave by by new year's eve make believe that I'm not there
If I don't fly by by the 4th of July, it don't signify that I can't sigh
Only that I'm trying to clear my mind and it's tough through all of these tears
