Here we go on another greasy Friday night
I'm gonna be well-lit when the party lights light
I'm gonna be three Snowcap one-hitters into my flight
But I'm still always ready for a Friday night fight

You see, you sweat in effect, you swung bags in her doorways
A song for her workers where the corporate whores gaze
Just lookin' for work I don't hate with more pay
I'm changin' my tune but I'm not goin' away

You see, I've been hangin' around for a long time
On the outside lookin' in
And I even reconsidered givin' up tellin' the truth for a while
About the things I haven't done and the places I have been
Yeah, I've been hangin' around
I've been hangin' around
I can't get out of this town
Well, I've been hangin' around
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

Alright

Aw, we got up in the middle of a bad deal
Where the management fucks you and the workers all steal
And the girl from Human Resources sweet talks me to squeal
But she don't really know exactly how I feel

She's such an interesting girl
Must have been some gorgeous child
She'd make a virginal mother
Not some black dress bride
She's no cunning little grifter
Got no Irish pride
She'd make a beautiful corpse
But I don't want her to die

You see, I've been hangin' around her office
Just to see if she'd be workin' late
And I would lick the sweat off the Human Resource facet
Just to kill a little time with her
Outside of these gates

Yeah, yeah, I've been hangin' around
I've been hangin' around
I can't get free of this town
Well, I've been hangin' around
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

She said she saw me singin' at the company picnic
I said, 'I seen you writin' down the names of the strikers when they picket
And I seen you at the clubs'
And she said, 'the ones I'm so sick of?'
And I said, 'I love it when you mix your power and your mischief'

Then the workers went home
And the lights went down
And the deal was made
And yeah, I sold out
I'll sell out tomorrow, last night and today
I'm changin' my tune
Not really goin' away

You see, I've been hangin' around for a long time
On the outside lookin' in
And I even reconsidered givin' up tellin' the truth for a while
About the things I haven't done and the places I have been
Yeah, I've been hangin' around
Yeah, I've been hangin' around
I can't get out of this town
Well, I've been hangin' around
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah! (x3)
