Well excuse me mam’ I wants ta put in my unemployment form please
Now hold on a minute mister, now it says here that you ain’t been working for 3 years
That’s right
Hey, wanna tell ya, ain’t it bout time you got yourself a job?
I’m looking for a job right now
Looking for a job and praying you ain’t gonna find one
You tell me what the last thing you done now
The last one?

I used to get up in the morning
Go to work with rain comin’ down
And when I was a handyman
Working in a country town
When I was a handyman
I cut down every tree in the yard
And the reason being
I swang my axe so hard

Is a good thing to be
You’re working hard
It’s from eight till three
When I was a handyman
I’d trim the rough edges of your lawn
I’d trimmed it so close
A cold chill run through your bones

Can fix your squeaking floors
Can shine the bit of your front door
When I was a handyman
The women had me deep in the mud
When my spade hit bedrock
She hollered ‘Oh my lord’
Oh my lord
