Lyrics
Fired
writer: Marc Kuchner

Black dirt under your fingernails
Uniform in the garbage pail
Newspaper turned to something painful
You're home early in the afternoon
It doesn't look like you're going out soon
You're just resting your head down on the table
Darling, don't tell me why you're blue
Cause I can see what they've done to you
You gave your all, you gave your heart
Now everything feels like it's falling apart

But take a good look at me and you
That's something you can hold on to
There might be a little work to do
But when you're near I feel inspired
It doesn't matter what company folds
Your job is holding me close
With me you'll always be loved and desired
And you'll never be fired

We'll sell my old necklace covered with dust
Spend some time just working on us
Maybe take a weekend in Colorado
Remember how we promised ourselves
Even if it meant going through hell
We'd stick together at any cost
I know you're thinking about what you lost, baby

But take a good look at me and you
That's something you can hold on to
There might be a little work to do
But your skills will always be admired
It doesn't matter what company folds
Your job is holding me close
With me you'll always be loved and desired
And you'll never be fired

My love for you will never quit
Show me the flame and I'll walk through it
Our little firm was never stronger
Next shooting star that comes to town
You'll get right on; I'll flag it down
But I can't stand to see you sad any longer

So take a good look at me and you
That's something you can hold on to
There might be a little work to do
But when you're near I feel inspired
It doesn't matter what company folds
Your job is holding me close
With me you'll always be loved and desired
And you'll never be fired
(I'll stand by you)
You'll never be fired
(I'll stay with you)
And you'll never be fired
