Let's Work Lyrics

by Mick Jagger

No sittin' down on your butt
The world don't owe you
No sittin' down in a rut
I wanna show you

Don't waste your energy
On makin' enemies
Just take a deep breath
And work your way up

Let's work, be proud
Stand tall, touch the clouds
Man and woman, be free
Let's work, kill poverty
Now work your way up

Let's work, be proud
Stand tall, touch the clouds
Man and woman, be free
Let's work, kill poverty

You're sittin' down on your butt
And you get greedy
You start to lose your nuts
Don't you look seedy
Can generosity bring you humility
So take a deep breath

Ain't gonna sweat for you
Ain't gonna sigh for you
Ain't gonna cry for you
If you're lazy

Ain't gonna slave for you
Ain't gonna hurt for you
It just won't work for you
If you're lazy
Come on, come on, come on

Let's work, be proud
Stand tall, touch the clouds
Let's work, let's eat
Let's live in ecstasy
Man and woman, be free
Let's work, kill poverty

Let's work, be proud
Stand tall, touch the clouds
Man and woman, be free

Let's work, let's work
Get down, get down, get down
Get down in the dirt and let's work
Get down in the dirt and let's work

Get up, be free
Get down in the dirt, let's work
Get down in the dirt and let's work
Get down in the dirt, take off your shirt
Get down in the dirt and let's work

Let's work
Let's work
Let's work
Let's work
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah
