A line of X's stand for a muted strum, in a vain attempt to
represent rhythm.

The keyboard intro can be simulated (and is later played):

 Give me a job, give me security.   give me a chance to survive

 I'm just a poor soul in the unemployement line, my God I'm hardly alive

 But I've got the power, and I've got the will - I'm not a charity case. 
I'll take those

  All night to be just what I am   I'm gonna be a blue collar man


Once more thru the keyboard riff, then thru the verse again.


Make me an offer, that I can't refuse.
Make me a respectable man.
This is my last time in the unemployement line,
so like it or not I'll take those...

then a muted tacit on D5, C5, Bb5, and A:
