Music and Lyrics Written By Fred Stein
What I want and what I need, I need a job, what I want and what I need, I need a job Somebody hire me, I need a job, somebody hire me, I need a job I'm competing with people everyday But everyone lies like a resume I want to be honest and do it the right way Hire me, I can do it, hire me, let me show you, hire me I'm tired of living off my friends and family, my future must depend on me Nothing is funny when you run out of money I toss and turn when I try to sleep, I need this job I'll work very cheap Starting at the bottom And work my way up Someday my name will be on a coffee cup Minimum wage is very little, minimum wage is hard to get by, but I give it one more try When you start out in your new career You have hope you have fear They want you to have experience, but where do you get it? If you don't have it, forget it I may have a college degree What good has that done for me Hire me, give me a chance, hire me you won't be Don't bother to apply If your old or overqualified Please give me one last try Stay with the job till I die Sweep the floors, I'll stay late Bring work home, never hesitate I love the job, it's just the work I hate My life has become a total wreck, just got my last unemployment check Come on and give me a job, you can do it, come on and give me a job, come on and do it I need a job, but not that kind, I need a job going out of my mind Trying to find work is hard to do, I have to go through so many interviews You know what I fear, that all the good jobs will disappear Whatever happened to the American Dream? Whatever happened to the American Dream? I moan and groan about my student loans. I moan and groan about my student loans. I NEED A JOB!
