You've got the style it takes


You've got the style it takes



Andy was a Catholic

the ethic ran through his bones

He lived alone with his mother,

collecting gossip and toys

Every Sunday when

he went to Church

He'd kneel in his pew and say

"It's just work,

all that matters is work. "

Andy was a lot of things,

what I remember the most:

He'd say, "I've got to

bring home the bacon

someone's got to

bring home the roast. "

He'd get to the factory early

If you would ask him

he would tell you straight out

It's just work,

the most important thing is work

No matter what I did

it never seemed enough

He said I was lazy,

I said I was young

He said, "How many songs did you write?"

I had written zero,

I lied and said, "Ten. "

"You won't be young forever

You should have written fifteen"

It's work, the most important thing is work

"You ought to make things big

People like it that way

And the songs with the dirty words

- record them that way"

Andy liked to stir up trouble

he was funny that way

He said, "It's just work"

Andy sat down to talk one day

He said decide what you want

Do you want to expand

your parameters

Or play museums

like some dilettante

I fired him on the spot

he got red and

called me a rat

It was the worst word

that he could think of

And I've never seen him like that

It's just work,

I thought he said

it's just work

he said it's just work

Andy said a lot of things

I stored them all away in my head

Sometimes when I can't decide

what I should do

I think what would Andy have said

He'd probably say you think too much

That's 'cause there's work

that you don't want to do

It's work, the most important thing is work


The trouble with a classicist

he looks at a tree
