You said you needed full time help
'cause you're all alone
I said I'd work for nothing at all
If I just could take you home
And now you're taking applications
For your love
You wanted certain specifications
I circled the one that said all the above
Work... for love
Finally got my resume
And you said you'd reviewed it some other day
I said, 'girl, hey, do it if you dare
Where I'd like to go our love will flare'
Finally my letter arrived
And I knew you would be mine
Instead I had to prove my turf
For the first two weeks work overtime
Work... for love
You've got to work
You've got to work for love
