The neighbors like him
Think he's a great guy
He wears a neck tie, he
He’s workin’ for the government

He get you elected
He take the heat y'all
He know the plan yeah, he
He’s workin’ for the government

Civil servant y'all
Mufti uniform
He keep a place in town, he
He’s workin’ for the government

He keep his mouth shut
Nobody know him
He G.I. Joe yeah, he
He’s workin’ for the government

Love come around
He never feel a thing
He see right through it all, he
He’s workin’ for the government

High places Low places
Man of influence
Mis-ter Invisible, he
He’s workin’ for the government

Hot war Cold war
Money and guns
It's all the same to him, he
He’s workin’ for the government

Your country My country
Gun for hire y'all
Mercenary 101, he
He’s workin’ for the government

He's a pro-fessional
He James Bond y'all
He come from nowhere, he
He’s workin’ for the government

Up town down town
Anywhere the chips come down he
Your town my town, he
He’s workin’ for the government
