All She Wants To Do Is Work

June 19, 2014

Sung to the tune of All She Wants To Do Is Dance by Don Henley
http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/donhenley/allshewantstodoisdance.html

She just filled out twenty applications, sent them on their way
And all she wants to do is work, work
Jobs been in short supply for quite a while
And all she wants to do is work
Unemployment extension has just run out
And all she wants to do is work, work
Feeling crazy walkin’ round with her blood-shot eyes
And all she wants to do is work, work
Wild-eyed, raving, unafraid to have been trying
And all she wants to do is-
All she wants to do is work and make money
She can’t feel the sweat from her brow
She wants a salary
She wants some income
All she wants to do is-
All she wants to do is work

Well, the government swears that the economy will be getting better
And all she wants to do is work, work
Her husband’s divorcing her for a trophy wife
And all she wants to do is work
But dreaming doesn’t keep the bills paid and the kids fed
And all she wants to do is work, work
She can still sell her old car and refinance the house
And all she wants to do is-
All she wants to do is work and make money

Well she barely made the last payment for her credit card
As she totaled up the expenses she could be heard to shout
She said “Don’t give me a headache”
Whatever she needs to do
She will get a job
‘Cause all she wants to is work and make money
Never mind the sweat off of her brow
She wants a salary
She wants some income
All she wants to do is-
All she wants to do is work
All she wants to do is work and make money
All she wants to do is work

Emily
