I'll take those long nights Impossible odds Keeping my eye in the keyhole If it takes all that To be just what I am Well, I'm gonna be a blue collar man Make me an offer That I can't refuse Make me respectable man This is my last time In the unemployment line So like it or not I'll take those long nights Impossible odds Keeping my back to the wall If it takes all night To be just who I am Well, I'm gonna be a blue collar man Keeping my mind on a better life Where happiness is Only a heartbeat away Paradise can it be All I heard it was I close my eyes and Maybe I'm already there I'll take those long nights Impossible odds Keeping my back to the wall All that to be just who I am Well, I'm gonna be a blue collar man You don't understand I'll take those long nights Impossible odds Keeping my eye in the keyhole If it takes all that To be just who I am Well, I'm bound to be a blue collar Gotta be a blue collar Gonna be a blue collar man All right
