  • 3 Nasty Secretary
  • You saw a sign on a pick up truck
    You bought a guitar with a borrowed buck -
    And you dig it, and you dig it
    They liked your songs
    they were hot for you
    You got the job
    there was work to do -
    And you dig it, and you dig it

    But waiting
    there was someone waiting for you
    Claiming a piece of everything that you do
    It seems I've heard your story all before
    Someone's standing knocking at your door

    The early morning wake up call -
    Your bags are packed and in the hall
    The managers ran off with all
    the money that you made

    You hit on the stage nearly every night
    You worked around till you get it right -
    And you dig it, and you dig it
    And then you signed for a record deal
    And off you go on the music wheel -
    And you dig it, and you dig it

    But waiting
    there was someone waiting for you
    Claiming a piece of everything that you do
    It seems I've heard your story all before
    Someone's standing knocking at your door

    The early morning wake up call -
    Your bags are packed and in the hall
    The managers ran off with all
    the money that you made

    You made the charts and all the
    hangers on were hanging on
    Flashing knives behind your back
    living in your money sack
    And you were thinking you got it made

    You do the tours and the interviews
    You meet the press and you're in the news -
    And you dig it, and you dig it
    You hear your song on the radio
    You see your face on the TV shows
    And you dig it, and you dig it

    Waiting
    there was someone waiting for you
    Claiming a piece of everything that you do
    It seems I've heard your story all before
    Someone's standing knocking at your door

    Your record isn't selling well
    the tickets to your shows don't sell
    You look around and suddenly
    you find that you've got leprosy
    The taxman's coming after you
    your lawyer and your girlfriend too
    And the managers ran off with
    all the money that you made

    And you dig it, and you dig it
    And you dig it, and you dig it
