  • Times are hard
    You're afraid to pay the fee
    So you find yourself somebody
    Who can do the job for free
    When you need a bit of lovin'
    'Cause your man is out of town
    That's the time you get me runnin'
    And you know I'll be around

    I'm a fool to do your dirty work
    Oh yeah
    I don't wanna do your dirty work
    No more
    I'm a fool to do your dirty work
    Oh yeah

    Light the candle
    Put the lock upon the door
    You have sent the maid home early
    Like a thousand times before
    Like the castle in its corner
    In a medieval game
    I foresee terrible trouble
    And I stay here just the same

    I'm a fool to do your dirty work
    Oh yeah
    I don't wanna do your dirty work
    No more
    I'm a fool to do your dirty work
    Oh yeah

    I'm a fool to do your dirty work
    Oh yeah
    I don't wanna do your dirty work
    No more
    I'm a fool to do your dirty work
    Oh yeah
    I don't wanna do your dirty work
    No more
    I'm a fool to do your dirty work
    Oh yeah Writer/s: Donald Fagen, Walter Carl Becker
