Down in the man power office I was lookin' for work
When along comes the feller in a big white shirt
He said you'll have to state your occupation son
He broke the lead of his pencil when I said, Which one?
I'm the jack of many trades, I took a hundred school grades
I wore out more axe blades, hammers, picks and dull spades
I'm the jack of many trades, a master of them all
I'm a fisherman, a fireman, a repairman, a cowboy, a roofer
A dog catcher, paymaster, bellboy, giant killer, diamond driller
Pig striller, milkman, gas pumper, coal dumper, bounty hunter, baker man
Surveyor, brick layer, hockey player, DJ, high rigger, grave digger, cotton picker, Chess player
I'm the jack of many trades, I took a hundred school grades
I wore out more axe blades, hammers, picks and dull spades
I'm the jack of many trades, a master of them all
I'm a farmer, snake charmer, doctor, a lawyer, a mule skinner, cat skinner,
Poker player, sawyer, floor sweeper, meter reader, miner, bum enroll, moss rigger
Ticket taker, lumberjack, sonomer, blood doner, matador, Steveador, Gun slinger
Pub singer, bell ringer, book maker, dry cleaner.
I'm the jack of many trades, I took a hundred school grades
I wore out more axe blades, hammers, picks and dull spades
I'm the jack of many trades, a master of them all
I'm a blacksmith, junkman, factory worker, lawman, bus driver, cab driver, truck driver
Weather man, sqiudjigger, babysitter, carpenter, psychriatrist, body man, service man
Taylor, archioligist, home maker, law breaker, lead breaker, paper boy, bus boy
A Water boy, bat boy, A lover boy.
I'm the jack of many trades, I took a hundred school grades
I wore out more axe blades, hammers, picks and dull spades
I'm the jack of many trades, a master of them all
I'm an oil man, train man, a garbage collector, mechanic, teacher, professor
movie director, a shoemaker, cook, painter, bar tender, vetranary, plumber
Tobacco man, barber, pipe setter, reporter, and salesman, postman, dealer man
Store man, butcher man, hydro man, potatoe man.
I'm the jack of many trades, I took a hundred school grades
I wore out more axe blades, hammers, picks and dull spades
I'm the jack of many trades, a master of them all
And if you have a job around, sir
I'd be the man to call, sir I'd be the man to call
