In the sweet old country where I come from

Nobody ever works

Yeah nothing gets done

We hang fire, 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, I hang fire

Hang fire, put it on the wire

We’ve got nothing to eat

We 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, hang fire

Hang fire, hang fire, put it on the wire

Doo doo doo

Take a thousand dollars go have some fun

Put it all on at a hundred to one

Hang fire, hang fire, put it on the wire
