Dirty Job

This song is by Dolly Parton and appears on the album Straight Talk (original soundtrack) (1992).

It's a dirty job
But somebody's got to do it
Better get to it
Somebody's gotta do it
Whatever it takes, whatever it takes
Any work at all
Is better than none
Better buckle down to it
Gotta get the job done
Gotta earn my pay... I gotta earn my pay
I can't wait around on the lottery
And there ain't no millionaires
Lookin' for me

And somebody's gotta do it, do it
Somebody's gotta do it, do it
Somebody's gotta do it, do it
Somebody

I can think of better things
I'd rather do
I might get lucky
And I'm hopin' to
But until I do
I gotta compromise
The job ain't much
But at least it's mine
It beats standin'
In the unemployment line
Put pride aside
And I'll improvise

Even if I do get a better job
Somebody else
Has gotta fill my spot

Somebody's gotta do it, do it
Somebody's gotta do it, do it
Somebody's gotta do it, do it
Somebody
Somebody
Somebody's gotta do it, do it
Somebody's gotta do it, do it
It's a dirty job
It's a low-down dirty job
Somebody

Even if the rules are too hard to follow
Even when pride is too hard to swallow
It's another day so it's another dollar
That's what it's all about, Oh

It's a dirty job
But somebody's got to do it
Better get to it
Somebody's gotta do it
Whatever it takes
Gotta keep the faith
Any work at all
Is better than none
Better buckle down to it
Gotta get the job done
Gotta earn my way
And it's a workin' day

The job ain't much
But at least it's mine
It beats standin'
In the unemployment line

Somebody's gotta do it, do it
Somebody's gotta do it, do it
Somebody's gotta do it, do it
Somebody
Somebody
It's a dirty job
Somebody's gotta do this low-down dirty job
Somebody
It's a dirty job, it's a dirty job
It's a low-down dirty job
Somebody
Somebody
Somebody
