GRATIFACTION From the film: "Tom Sawyer" aka "A Musical Adaptation of Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer" - 1973 (Robert B. Sherman / Richard M. Sherman) Sung by Tom Sawyer (Johnny Whitaker) & Boys Chorus Boys Chorus: You call this work? Well, ain't that funny We ain't doin' this for money Heck, it's just a regular Privilege to be occupied It's a source of pride Anyone can swim and fish on a Saturday Anyone can just lay down Layin' in a hammock, Layin' in the grass Like a lazy, no-good hound Tom: They just know that I'm softhearted I was barely getting' started Now I'm givin' all of my fun away They keep beggin' me And I'm generous I mean, when's the last time You could slosh a bucket Full of wash on a mile of fence? Look at them smilin' And havin' a time And all at my expense Boys Chorus: And you get that deep down inside gratifaction Gratifyin' satisfac— Well, I mean that deep-down inside gratifaction Oh, how good you feel When your shoulder's to the wheel You don't need nothin' except ambition Elbow grease for ammunition And bang, what a righteous glow you get From honest sweat, It's a natural bet Anyone who puts his Nose to the grindstone Is gonna get a great reward Your eyes will see the glory of The coming of the Lord And you get that deep-down inside gratifaction Pure enjoyment from employ— Well, I mean that deep-down inside gratifaction Oh, how good you feel When your shoulder's to the wheel You don't need nothin' except ambition Elbow grease for ammunition And bang, what a righteous glow you get From honest sweat, It's a natural bet Anyone who puts his Nose to the grindstone Is gonna get a great reward Your eyes will see the glory of The coming of the Lord And you get that deep-down inside gratifaction And you get that deep down inside gratifaction Gratifyin' satisfac— Well, I mean that deep-down inside gratifaction Oh, how good you feel When your shoulder's to the wheel (Transcribed by Carlene Bogle - April 2004)
