YOU'VE GOTTA BE A HUSTLER IF YOU WANNA GET ON Sue Wilkinson - 1980 I remember Sally from number four She always had boys queueing up at her door She wasn't so good looking, but she seemed to have such fun While I had none, I asked my Mum, "How come?" Mother said Sally was loose and cheap And girls like that ended up on the street Not like me, I was good, you see Now I saw Sally in the deli today She's a lady now in every way So darn rich, people tell me she's a witch With lovers by the score, do I have to tell you more Oh, you've got to be a hustler if you want to get on Principles can only hold you back The only women makin' it are women who are shakin' it They're faking all their morals on the mat It's an act, it's a fact You've got to be a hustler if you want to make a name Bein' good can only get you hurt Chastity and virtue never brought a woman fame And men will always crave a cunning flirt When you read the newspapers every day There's always some hussy that's having her way By dating someone famous, she makes herself a name And no one blames her, I guess we'd all do the same But then they get married and before you know She wants divorce and half of his dough Gets herself a lawyer who's a really shrewd guy And get's the judge's sympathy by crying and crying Yes, you've got to be a hustler if you want to get on Principles can only hold you back The only women makin' it are women who are shakin' it They're faking all their morals on the mat It's an act, it's a fact You've got to be a hustler if you want to make a name Bein' good can only get you hurt Chastity and virtue never brought a woman fame And men will always crave a cunning flirt Well, the next time it happens as she starts to write Of her schemes through the days and her men through the nights And even though it's tasteless, the book sells coast to coast On all the chat shows, you can see her boast And now they're makin' a film of the book And no one gives a damn that the girl was a "Huh" They've got posters obscene, now she's mixin with the cream No one even cares what she's done or where she's been Ooh, you've got to be a hustler if you want to get on Principles can only hold you back The only women makin' it are women who are shakin' it They're faking all their morals on the mat It's an act, it's a fact You've got to be a hustler if you want to make a name Bein' good can only get you hurt Chastity and virtue never brought a woman fame And men will always crave a cunning flirt Yes, you've got to be a hustler if you want to get on (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2004)
