Today I’m gonna get myself a real job
It’s time to be a standard working man
Oh this music thing’s been fun
But I think that I am done
Today I’m gonna get myself a real job

I’m contemplating getting on the payroll
No stress about what other people think
No ticket sales, no critics
Or Spotify statistics
Today I’m gonna get myself a real job

Now my insecurity
Got the best part of me
I’m gonna quit guitar and get a real job

Today I’m gonna get myself a real job
(He might just get a real job)
In the family business making food
(Making food at Wong’s)
I poured my heart out in these songs
Now it’s time to cook at Wong’s

I think someday I might just get a real job
I spent half of my life in a bus or on a flight
I’m getting off the road and in a real job

Now my friends have always said:
“This is all just in your head
Now get out of your bed (This is your)
Don’t read the comment threads (This is your)
Go write a song instead
This is your real job”

I was never made to have a real job
This passion’s burned inside since I was twelve
Now I may not be the best
But I know that I can rest
Knowing today that I don’t ever need a real job
