Just A Job To Do
No use saying that it's alright, it's alright
Where were you after midnight, midnight?
Heard a bang, bang, bang, and down they go
It's just a job you do
'Cause the harder they run, the harder they fall
I'm coming down hard on you

No one saw what you looked like, what you looked like
Like a stranger you came out of the night, out of the night
'Cause someone put the word on you, I hope my aim is true

I got a name, I got a number, I gotta line on you
I got a name, and I got a number, I'm coming after you

Now, don't keep saying that it's alright, it's alright
It seems you went just a little too far this time
Heard a bang, bang, bang, and down you go
It's just a job I do
'Cause the harder you run and the harder you fall
I'm coming down hard on you, hard on you
I hope my aim is true

I got a name, I got a number, I got a line on you
I got a name, and I got a number, and I'm coming after you

Keep running, keep running
City to city, even if you're innocent
You can cause too much embarrassment
And now your heart is aching
And you know there's no mistaking
'Cause you feel your life line breaking (keep running, keep running)
Can feel your hands are shaking (keep running, keep running)
No one answers the telephone
You can never, never, never go home alone
And now your heart is aching
And you know there's no mistaking
The footsteps close behind

Now, don't pretend that you sleep at night, well, sleep tight
And can't you feel that the time is right? it's alright
With a bang, bang, bang, down you go
No one really cares
'Cause the harder you run, and the harder you fall
I'm coming down hard on you
(Hard on you)
I hope my aim is true

I got a name, and I got a number, I got a line on you
I got a name, I got a number, I'm coming after you
I got a name, and I got a number, I got a line on you
I got a name, and I got a number, I got a job to do
