"Dirty Business"by Mr. Blink

DIRTY BUSINESS - Words by Mike Caucutt


Checking out the local scene
- wondering why they act so mean
tired of trying to please every Tom, Dick, and Jane


Started out to impress,
a small town girl in her Sunday dress
now I guess - it's too late to start again


Been deported- I've been shorted
phone pushed through my brain
been arrested and molested
say, "I ain't never playing here again"


CHORUS:

It's a dirty - d-d-d-dirty
It's a dirty business


Breathing in that second hand air -
La,la,la with no monitor
beer sweat stings my eyes - I am blind


Blowing speakers left and right -
jumping in to stop a fight -
working every week-end 'til bar-time


Been ignored- I've been bored
I'm a broken video game
been ripped off and pissed off
They're yelling 'Freebird' again


CHORUS


Pile into that old Dodge van - the band is on the road again
gotta play in Texas Friday night


Sun and snow and wind and rain -
those Interstate tolls are such a pain but I got no change -
on my mind tonight


Been broken down in a shitty town
not a friendly jump start in sight
Been publicized and critisized
for doing what I like


CHORUS
