In the sweet old country where I come from
Nobody ever works
Nothing ever gets done
We hang fire
We hang fire

You know marrying money is a full time job
I don't need the aggravation
I'm a lazy slob
We hang fire
Hang fire, hang fire, hang
Put it on the wire, baby
hang fire, hang fire
Put it on the wire baby

We got nothing to eat
We go nowhere to work
Nothing to drink
We just lost our shirt
I'm on the dole
We ain't for hire
Say what the hell, say what the hell!
Hang fire
Hang fire, hang fire
Put it on the wire baby
Hang fire, hang fire
Hang fire, hang fire
Hang fire, hang fire
Put it on the wire baby

Yeah, take a thousand dollars
Go and have some fun
Put it all on at a hundred to one
Hang fire
We hang fire
Put it on the wire baby
