gotta get a job lyrics – fats domino

i’ve gotta get a job
first thing in the mornin’
dress up real sharp
take an early bus downtown
i borrow your paper
i read the want ads
take what they got
’cause i need a job real bad
i’m tired of bein’ broke
ain’t got a dime
man, he’s always callin’
pay my rent on time
so i’ve put on my hat
and my old cashmere coat
if i don’t get a paper
it won’t be much hope
i ain’t got a friend
no one i can find
i can’t even borrow the right time
ain’t got no money
can’t get a dime
i can’t even shame my own mind

i’ve gotta get a job
first thing in the mornin’
dress up real sharp
take an early bus downtown
i borrow your paper
i read the want ads
take what they got
’cause i need a job real bad
