Lyrics

Dirty work, someone's got to do it
dirty work, now do not you make a fuss
Dirty work, someone's got to do it
Dirty work, and That someone is us

Rich pickings on the dirt pile
Shoveling junk
Rooting through the rubbish
The smell and the funk
Standing on the scrap heap
The Rotten and the bad
Filling up our bellies
Rich pickings to be had

Dirty work, someone's got to do it
dirty work, now do not you make a fuss
Dirty work, someone's got to do it
Dirty work, and That someone is us

Keep on working, keep it going
We grow stronger by the day
As the cats grow soft and lazy
in their crunchie munchie way
Suffer for success
And we'll overcome the cats
The time is near, surely
When the city will belong to rats!

Dirty work, someone's got to do it
dirty work, now do not you make a fuss
Dirty work, someone's got to do it
Dirty work, and That someone is us
