People Say a Lot - Carly Simon

 

People say a lot when they want the job yeah

Lining up sideways around the block

 

"It's not for the money" she say to you

 

Almost convincing herself that it's true

"I'll take care of your dog when you're away"

 

"I don't mind working Saturdays"

"When you wanna work I'll work with you" she say

"And I'll go on working when you wanna play"

 

"Nothing gonna hurt you when I'm around"

"I'll keep my eyes wide open and my nose to the ground"

"I'll be like a mama with a baby cub"

 

People say a lot when they want the job

 

People say a lot when they want the job yeah

People say a lot when they want the job

 

When you begin to see a sinister gleam

You're locked in too tight on the same team

There's a little holiday in her heart

When she sees you slip up Ahhhhh

It's like Christmas Eve just to see you trip up

 

Ooops then down again

She'll sit on the floor hardly hiding a grin

When her tears spill out crocodile chagrin

It's her contempt for you she thinks you're a slob

People say a lot when they want the job yeah

People say a lot when they want the job

 

People say a lot when they want the job

 

Greatest cook to bring a meal (didn't need a recipe)

Said she'll also deal the cards (dealt the knave and two and three)

Said she also feel the thrill of the willow in the wind

(feel the thrillo the willow---- or oak or elm or ash or pine sol)

It's already too late when she's reading your mail

Calling your agent and making the deal

She'll just copy and paste it and make it last

Nothing is sacred about your past

She'll tell of the poppies in the July fest

Maybe her brother with the badge can make the arrest

"You could go to jail fail all the tests"

"Forget your keys and your secrets and your little black box"

 

People say a lot when they want the job yeah

People say a lot when they want the job yeah

People say a lot when they want the job

 

She was awfully good at fire (fiery fiery hussy burn)

She burned bridges where she could (she really couldn't burn them very well)

She turned young men into torches (burning scarecrow)

She had a way with wood (do away with wood do away with wood)

People say a lot when they want the job

Lining up eager around the block

 

Promising promising never to quit

Well it's a full time job to be a hypocrite

 

Maybe they remember that they've done it before

Practicing with their dolls on the floor

The lie itself becoming the seed

The messy mascara the future deed

The actor's bow the junkie's need

They line up again just to wipe you clean

They line up again just to wipe you out

 

Line up again around the block

 

A mighty force of youth for hire

Spouting ideas that geniuses would rob ohhhhh

People say a lot when they want the job oh

People say a lot when they want the job ah

People say a lot when they want the job yeah

People say a lot when they want the job

 

People say a lot when they want the job

 

"Tell me Phoebe do you want someday

To have an award like that of your own "

 

"More than anything else in the world"

 

"Then you must ask Miss Harrington how to get one

 

…Miss Harrington knows all about it"
