I love my job almost as much as I do you
It's a good job
I may not get paid as much
but I more than make up
with an enormous sense of self-worth
My job

Some people just work to
pay the bills and put bread on the table
I couldn't do that
I need feeling and purpose
My job

Although i admit sometimes
it's not very fun
in fact, it can be pretty stressful
at the end of the day
I know I begun and completed the work
only by my own willpower

There is work that is play
There is play that is work
And play that is play
And work that is work
And in only one of these
lies happiness
I'm a pretty lucky guy
I love you and i love my job

    General CommentTaking away the morbid context of the video and the title of the song, to me it just sounds like a beautifully flowing song about someone that is content with work and love… accepting and appreciating the good he/she receives?! In a 'money is not all that important to happiness' sort of way?!

    Not sure why it is called the executioner song or why a hanging is part of the song in the video… I think it is quite comical that these things got put together- song- title- hanging. Maybe in a strange and bizarre world someone that is getting paid to ‘kill’ (in the broadest sense of the meaning) is grateful and justifies this as it being just a job to make ends meet.
