LyricsEdit

You say I'm evil
That's what you say
But I'm true to you, dear
In my own special way
You say I'm evil --
Then I guess I must be!
But such a nessa nessa nessa nessa necessary evil
Well you gotta put your trust in me!

Chaka! Chaka! Chaka! Chaka!

I can tear out your heart
I can suck out your soul
I can pull you apart
And put you back again whole
I can flicker and flame
I can do as I dare
'Cause it's all just a game
And I really don't care
Yes, I'm vicious and malicious, avaricious, it's true
But if I weren't around, love, just tell me what would you do?

Who'd do the dirty
Who'd do the dirty
Who'd do the dirty dirty work and keep your power alive?
Who'd do the dirty
Who'd do the dirty
Who'd do the dirty dirty work and then the shuck and the jive?
Who'd do the dirty
Who'd do the dirty
Who'd do the dirty and ya know it's really how ya survive
Listen to every little word I say
I'm gonna dirty the night away!

I'm the father of lies
I'm a maker of schemes
A philandering, meandering, a breaker of dreams
The betrayer of love
I'm the conveyor of hate
So go on, put a lid on me
Before it's too late
'Cause I'm so treacherous, so kvetcherous, so lecherous too
But that's only to others, baby, no never to you!

And I do the dirty
I do the dirty
I do the dirty
I do the dirty dirty work and keep your power alive?
I do the dirty
I do the dirty
I do the dirty dirty work and then the shuck and the jive?
I do the dirty
I do the dirty
I do the dirty and ya know it's really how ya survive
Listen to every single word I say
We're gonna dirty the night away!

What's happened to us, love
I just have to laugh
I gave you my trust
But then you gave me the shaft
Your friends want me elsewhere
Get rid of me -- do!
But when I'm not around
Who'll do what only I can do!?
Oh, I'm seditious, and capricious, and delicious, well, I guess
Stick with me, babe, you will see, I can clean up any mess
I'm gonna make you a success
And I'll do the dirty
