Jack of All Trades Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Now, I don't mind workin' hard
You can't burn me down
They ain't made a job
That I can't work my way around

Sometime, I do it for the money
Sometime, for the glamor
Sometime, I use my head
Sometime, I get a bigger hammer
Get a bigger hammer

I worked on the railroad
I worked in the fields
I'm a steeple jack and it's a fact
I drive anything on wheels

I can frame a house, drive pilin'
Pour that wet concrete
Take a weldin' rig and build a bridge
And I can do it in my sleep
Do it in my sleep

But I'm the jack of all trades
I love every lick I get
If I ain't got the job done, son
I might not want to quit

I'm the jack of all trades
That makes me the boss
You gon' get your money's worth
No matter what it costs

I don't work assembly line
Doin' the same ol' thing
The same ol' shop, the same ol' clock
Is playin' the same ol' game

And I don't want no desk job, man
It don't suit my clothes
And I don't need no engineer
Just to show me how it goes
C'mon, show me how it goes

I'm the jack of all trades
I love every lick I get
If I ain't got the job done, son
I might not want to quit

I'm the jack of all trades
That makes me the boss
You gon' get your money's worth
No matter what it costs

Well, there ain't no need to do a job
If I can't do it right
I may not be gettin' rich
But I'm sleepin' good at night

Some call me a gypsy
Some call me a flake
But I'll kiss your ass if I don't earn
Every dime I make
Every dime I make

I'm the jack of all trades
I love every lick I get
If I ain't got the job done, son
I might not want to quit

I'm the jack of all trades
That makes me the boss
You gon' get your money's worth
No matter what it costs
