reggie miles Seeking: Pacific Northwest Work and Labor Songs (48) Lyr Add: I'LL DO ANYTHING TO MAKE A BUCK (R Miles) 14 Dec 10


My Cd, <"War Mongerin' Man" 2008>, might be a good place to look/listen. The following titles might be of interest, "You Can Be A Street Musician", "Chasin' The American Dream", "I Scraped My Knuckle", "Blue Collar Blues", "I'm Old", "Hell No To The WTO!" and the title cut. Some others that might also be of interest are, "Shopping Cart Wrangler", "100 Years", "Wall Street Bail Out Blues", "Too Little Money" and "Blackballed". Some of these are posted online as Mp3s but presently, are not on a Cd. Others, I play but I've not yet recorded.

The following is one that I'd like to add to my next Blues Cd. I released an earlier version of it on one of my recordings that is now out of print but I enjoy the version that I'm offering now much more and want to re-record it.

"I'll Do Anything To Make A Buck" by Reggie Miles

I'll do anything to make a buck

I'll wash your car
Fix your truck
Unstick anything that's stuck
Even if it's caked with guck and muck
I'll do anything to make a buck

I'll do anything to make a buck

I'll wash your car
Fix your truck
Unstick anything that's stuck
Even if it's caked with guck and muck
I'll do anything to make a buck

I'll do anything to make a buck

I'll dig your ditch
Pick your fruits
Wash your clothes
Shine your boots
Got some corn you need to shuck?

I'll do anything to make a buck

I'll cut your grass
Pull your weeds
Chop your wood
Plant your seeds
I'll do whatever meets your needs

I'll do anything to make a buck

I'll clean your house
Cook your meals
Haul your water
Plow your fields
And I'll do it all in six-inch heels

I'll do anything to make a buck

I'll paint your walls
Sweep your floor
Take your calls
Sell door to door
I'll bag your groceries at the grocery store

I'll do anything to make a buck

And I will sing your favorite song
I'll table dance all night long
Wearing nothing but a thong
Even if I know it's wrong
I won't give a flying duck

I'll do anything to make a buck

I'll sell my body
Sell you dope
Sell you lies
And false hope
I'll sell my soul just to cope

I'll do anything to make a buck

I'll go to war
Kill your sons
Steal your freedom
Take your guns
I'll even rob your retirement funds

I'll do anything to make a buck

No, there isn't anything that I won't do
No deceit too great, profane or cruel
No deed to low, it don't matter who,
I have to screw or suck
I'll do anything to make a buck

I'll do anything to make a buck
I'll do anything to make a buck
I'll do anything to make a buck
