IT'S MY JOB (Mac McAnally) Jimmy Buffet - 1981 Livingston Taylor - 1991 Michael Johnson - 2000 In the middle of late last night, I was sittin' on a curb Didn't know what about but something had me quite disturbed Street sweeper comes whistling by and he's bouncing every step Seems strange how good he felt so I asked him while he swept He said it's my job to be cleaning up this mess And that's the best reason to go for me It's my job to be better than the rest And that makes the day for me Got an uncle that owns a bank, he's a self made millionaire Never had anyone to thank, never had no one to care He always seemed kind of sad to me so I asked him why that was And he told me it's because in my contract there's a clause That says it's my job to be worried half to death And that's the thing people respect in me It's my job and without it I'd be less Than what I expect to be I've been lazy most all my life, singing songs and sleeping late Any manual labor I've done is purely by mistake If street sweepers can smile then I got no right to feel upset But sometimes I still forget till the lights come on and the stage is set And the song hits home and you feel that sweat It's my job to be different from the rest And that's the best reason to go for me It's my job to be better than the rest And that's a tough break for me It's my job to be cleaning up this mess And that's the best reason to go for me It's my job to be different from the rest And that makes the day for me
