(Elliott, Collen, Campbell, Savage, Allen)

I need a job
I need it right now
Not just any old job
But I need it right now

It's gotta be a good one
It's gotta last
Longer than the other ones
In the past

I can work hard
And do my thing
Twenty-four seven
Anything

Yeah

Gimme a job
My love is unemployed
Gimme a job
And my heart ain't overjoyed
Gimme a job
I don't mean to be paranoid
So come on over baby
And gimme a job

Oh yeah

I don't care
If the pay's no good
Just gimme some shelter
And throw me some food

I can do the overtime
And I won't strike
Sign on the dotted line
Anything you like

Yeah

Gimme a job
My love is unemployed
Gimme a job
And my heart ain't overjoyed
Gimme a job
I don't mean to sound paranoid
So come on over baby
And gimme a job

[guitar solo]

I don't need no money
To make my dream come true
I don't need anything
All I want is you

Ain't that the truth!

Uh!

Gimme a job
My love is unemployed
Gimme a job
And my heart ain't overjoyed
Gimme a job
I don't mean to be paranoid
So come on over baby

Gimme a job
My love is on it's knees
Gimme a job
If you want it, then baby please
Gimme a job
Get me out of this deep, deep freeze
So come on over baby
And gimme a job
