Jimmy Buffett – You'll Never Work In Dis Bidness Again lyrics

He told it to the monkeys and they didn't talk back
Then he told the old iguana and he didn't attack

They told me before I started
That it never ever would work out
Stay in school, don't be afool
But I had to see what life is about

So I went to Biloxi seeking fortune and fame
I got hired, I got fired, I got called dirty names
You'll never never work in this bidness again
No you'll never, no never
Never work in this bidness again

I knew I needed representation
And I found it one night in a bar
He was a bondsman and a part time agent
And he said that he would make me a star

He said, "You don't have to be that good
To make it out in Hollywood
You just have to change and complain. "
Or you'll never, never work in this bidness again
You'll never, no, never, never work in this bidness again.

I parked cars at the Rainbow
I sold maps of the stars
I got my nose broken in Spago's
When I puked on the bar

All I played's a double bar mitzvah
Bubba played a double bar mitzvah

It's a jungle out there
We love it
Hell, I don't care
I'm going back to my predator friends
I will never, never work in this bidness again
No, I'll never, no never, never work in this bidness again
You'll never, never work in this bidness again
