Give
me a job give, me security Give
me a chance to survive I'm
just a poor soul in the unemployment line My
God I'm hardly alive My
mother and father my, wife and my friends You're
seen them laugh in my face But
I've got the power and I've got the will I'm
not a charity case -- I'll take those Long
nights impossible, odds Keeping
my eye on the keyhole If
it takes all that to be just what I am Well
I'm gonna be a blue collar man Make
me an offer that I can't refuse Make
me respectable man This
is my last time in the unemployment line So
like it or not -- I'll take those Long
nights impossible, odds Keeping
my back to the wall If
it takes all night to be just who I am Well
I'm gonna be a blue collar man Keeping
my mind on a better life Where
happiness is only a heartbeat away Paradise--can
it be all I heard it was I
close my eyes and maybe I'm already there
