In the sweet old country where I come from
Nobody ever works, nothing ever gets done

We hang fire

You know, marrying money is a full time job
I don't need the aggravation, I'm a lazy slob

I hang fire

Hang fire, hang fire
Put it on the wire, baby

Hang fire

We've got nothing to eat, we've got nowhere to work
Nothing to drink, we just lost our shirts
I'm on the dole, "we ain't for hire"
Say what the hell, say what the hell

Yeah, take a thousand dollars, go and have some fun
Put it all on at a hundred to one
