ONE GOOD FAST JOB

I know you keep hoping history might change,
That hope comes in a yellow dress
And all the little things that stay the same.
One night, I promise,
Two nights, tops.
There's no need for drama,
This is one good fast job.


Planes dropping paper, jets dropping scissors,
Pretty soon all them chimps are becoming
Regular Wizards.
There's what was promised,
There's what was thought.
Never mind the commas,
This is one good fast job.

“Say, 'Art's shot!” Said Wellman to Fonda,
“Squeeze that line harder, Son,
Squeeze it like an anaconda.”
Forget the promise.
Here's what I got.
You can do it in your pajamas,
This is one good fast job.

I had to look,
I had to go,
I had to laugh.
I had to stop,
I had to jump,
I had to act.

Listen, you sound hard, you sound dope,
You sound like you lick
Your own envelopes.
Forget the promise.
Here's what I got.
How badly do you want this?
It's one good fast job.

Planes dropping paper, jets dropping scissors,
See the planes drop the paper and the jets dropping the scissors.
