Blue Collar Killer

from by Callum Gentleman



Wanted to get Simon Bridges to play drums & John Key to sing backing vocals but it didn't work out.


Blue Collar Killer
Blue Collar Killer
Is it just a job to you

I say Blue Collar Killer
Blue Collar Killer
It’s just another job to do
It’s just another dollar for you

Yesterday’s dinner lies cold on the table in the kitchen where your wife is crying alone
She wonders when she’ll see ya
She worries bout the life you’re leading
Maybe you should run to her now

Blue Collar Killer
Blue Collar Killer
Is it just a job that pays
You kill us & you walk away
Killing is just what you do

Your daughter’s sitting freezing by the gates of the school
She is waiting for her daddy to drive her home
Maybe it’s time you clocked out form this shift
And you go to her go to her go go go

Go Mr. Killer
Blue Collar Killer
Maybe you’re just working too hard
I think that you’re taking this all too far

And I know you’re just trying to make ends meet
But why why why does that mean
That you have to end me

Surely today
Surely today your job’s not me

I say hey Mr. Killer
Blue Collar Killer
Am I just a job to you?
Am I just a dollar?
Am I just a job?

Blue Collar Killer don’t
Please Mr. Killer
Oh now hey Mr. Killer
