Ry Cooder – Do You Want My Job lyrics
Cool breezes from the mountains blow
As I wake up and dress to go
On the island dawn is breaking
In the harbour tanker's waiting
From the land of the rising sun
They bring their old plutonium
And we unload it in the bay
For two dollars forty cents a day

Chorus:
Do you want my
Do you want my
Do you want my
Do you want my job

I hump the stuff I take the cash
So my kids can wear Adidas
And if you live here home you know
We ain't got no place else to go

I remember when the air was sweet
And I brought home the fish to eat
Now we buy Spam from the grocery store
Cause you can eat the fish no more

Chorus
