Close your eyes and plug your ears and turn away
I will carry out the task without dismay
Just leave upon the table what you've agreed to pay
Then tell me

How do you like me now?
How do you like me now?
I will do your dirty work
Tell me, how do you like me now?

Chances are you'll never hear again from me
Not my style to put my business on the street
But you know where to find me and you also know my fee
So tell me

How do you like me now?
How do you like me now
That I've done your dirty work
Tell me, how do you like me now?

How do you like me now?
How do you like me now?
That I've done your dirty work
Tell me, how do you like me now?

I will lay a foe to waste
For a grudge I've never had
I will burn a field of grain
For a spite I've never had

And I will spoil the wealth of kings
For a greed I'll never have
I will bring a nation down
For a cause I'll never have

Close your eyes and plug your ears and turn away
You won't have to face the consequences today

Tell me, how do you like me now?
How do you like me now?
That I've done your dirty work
Tell me, how do you like me now?

How do you like me now?
How do you like me now?
That I've done your dirty work
Tell me, how do you like me now?
