Its a dirty job
But somebodys got to do it
Better get to it
Somebodys gotta do it
Whatever it takes, whatever it takes
Any work at all
Is better than none
Better buckle down to it
Gotta get the job done
Gotta earn my pay... I gotta earn my pay
I can't wait around on the lottery
And there aint no millionaires
Lookin for me

And somebodys gotta do it, do it
Somebodys gotta do it, do it
Somebodys gotta do it, do it
Somebody

I can think of better things
Id rather do
I might get lucky
And Im hopin to
But until I do
I gotta compromise
The job aint much
But at least it's mine
It beats standin
In the unemployment line
Put pride aside
And I'll improvise

Even if I do get a better job
Somebody else
Has gotta fill my spot

Somebodys gotta do it, do it
Somebodys gotta do it, do it
Somebodys gotta do it, do it
Somebody
Somebody
Somebodys gotta do it, do it
Somebodys gotta do it, do it
Its a dirty job
Its a low-down dirty job
Somebody

Even if the rules are too hard to follow
Even when pride is too hard to swallow
Its another day so it's another dollar
That's what it's all about, oh

Its a dirty job
But somebodys got to do it
Better get to it
Somebodys gotta do it
Whatever it takes
Gotta keep the faith
Any work at all
Is better than none
Better buckle down to it
Gotta get the job done
Gotta earn my way
And it's a workin day

The job aint much
But at least it's mine
It beats standin
In the unemployment line

Somebodys gotta do it, do it
Somebodys gotta do it, do it
Somebodys gotta do it, do it
Somebody
Somebody
Its a dirty job
Somebodys gotta do this low-down dirty job
Somebody
Its a dirty job, it's a dirty job
Its a low-down dirty job
Somebody
Somebody
Somebody
