Give me a job, give me security
Give me a chance to survive
I'm just a poor soul in the unemployment line
My god, I'm hardly alive
My mother and father, my wife and my friends
You see them laugh in my face
But I've got the power, and I've got the will
I'm not a charity case

I'll take those long nights, impossible odds
Keeping my eye to the keyhole
If it takes all that to be just what I am
Well I'm gonna be a blue collar man

Make me an offer that I can't refuse
Make me a respectable man
This is my last time in the unemployment line
So like it or not, I'll take the

Long nights, impossible odds
Keeping my back to the wall
If it takes all night to be just what I am
Well, I'm gonna be a blue collar man

Keeping my mind on a better life
Where happiness is only a heartbeat away
Paradise, can it be all I heard it was
I close my eyes and maybe I'm already there

I'll take those long nights, impossible odds
Keeping my back to the wall
All that to be just what I am
Well I'm gonna be a blue collar man

Do, do do do, do do do do

You don't understand

Do do do do do do do do do do do

I'll take those long nights, impossible odds
Keeping my eye to the keyhole
If it takes all night to be just who I am

Well, I'm bound to be a blue collar
Got to be a blue collar
Gonna be a blue collar man

All right!

Believe it.
