  1. Straight Job

From the album music tracks

Lyrics

Had a dream, the age of 13, I’d roam around the world
Hot spot lights, electric music, impressing fine young girls
I told my daddy what I was thinking
But before I got it done
He interrupted, I might consider
Something to fall back on

Get a Straight Job and you can play hard
On weekends and on holidays and 2 weeks every summer
You may realize there ain’t no free ride
You pay for every moment you get, one way or another

I lived that dream, so I seemed a fortunate young man
Played all night, slept all day, ain’t sayin’ I had no plan
If there was something to gripe about
Can’t remember what it was now
It all ended in a twist and shout
To make ends meet somehow

Got a Straight Job so I could play hard
On weekends and on holidays and two weeks every summer
And I realized. There ain’t no free ride
You pay for every moment you get, one way or another

I don’t know where the time went
Should be thinkin’ ‘bout retirement
I guess I should have saved somewhere along the line
I got nothing put away, but I still got some time

To get a Straight Job so I can play hard
On weekends and on holidays and 2 weeks every summer
I realize, there ain’t no free ride
You pay for every moment you get one way or another
Straight Job
Life is a Straight Job
