Working Undercover for the Man

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the EP Working Undercover for the Man (2000) and on the album Mink Car (2001).

I've been working hard, trying to sing and play guitar.
Growing out my hair, and practicing my stare.

Paid to fake it in a traveling band,
And I'm working undercover for the man.
Sha-la-la-la-la Sha-la-la-la-la

Planning midnight raids on our unsuspecting fans,
While roadies rig the video surveillance van.

Paid to fake it in a traveling band,
And I'm working undercover for the man.
Sha-la-la-la-la Sha-la-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la-la Sha-la-la-la-la

I've been working hard, trying to sing and play guitar.
Growing out my hair, and practicing my stare.

Paid to fake it in a traveling band,
And I'm working undercover for the man.
Sha-la-la-la-la Sha-la-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la-la Sha-la-la-la-la
