You got soul on the dole
You're gonna have a good time down on the line.
You got soul on the dole
You're gonna have a good time down on the line.
I said get
Get
Get on down
I said get
Get get on down

I said get
Get
Get on down
I said get
Get
Get on down.
Hey
Everybody take a look at me
I've got street credibility.
I may not have a job but I have a good time
With the boys that I meet down on the line.
I said d.h.s.s. - man
The rhythm that they're givin' is the very best.
I said b-one b-two - make the claims on your names all you have to do.
Well
Folks can be a drag if work ain't your bag and when you let them know
You're more dead than alive in a nine to five
Then they say you'd got to go

And get yourselves a job or get out of this house.
Get yourself a job are you a man or a mouse.
A finger in each ear you pretend not to hear

Gotta get some space get out of this place.
Wham bam - I am a man
Job or no job
You can't tell me that I'm not.
Do you enjoy what you do if not just stop
Don't stay there and rot.
On the streets in the cars on the underground

If you listen real hard you can hear the sound

Of a million people switching off for work

Well
Listen
Mr. Average
You're a jerk.
Not me - you can't hold me down

Not me - I'm gonna fool around
Gonna have some fun.
Look out for number one
You can dig your grave
I'm staying young.
Wham bam - I am a man
Job or no job
You can't tell me that I'm not. . . .
If you're a pub man or a club man
Maybe a jet black guy with a hip hi-fi

A white cool cat with a trilby hat maybe leather and studs

Is where you're at
Make the most of everyday.
Don't let hard times stand in your way
Give a wham give a bam

But don't give a damn
'cos the benefit gang are gonna pay.
Now I reach up high and touch your soul
The boys from wham
Will help you reach that goal
It's gonna break your mama's heart

It's gonna break your daddy's heart

But you'll throw the dice and take my advice.
Because I know that you're smart
Can you dig this thing? - Yeah.
Are you gonna get down? - Yeah. Say wham - wham
Say bam - bam.
Wham bam - I am a man
Job or no job
You can't tell me that I'm not. . . .
Wham bam - I am a man
Job or no job
You can't tell me that I'm not. . . .
