Lyrics

FOLLOWING ORDERS
words and music by MICHELLE MANGIONE & EXENE CERVENKA

It’s hard times
A man’s gotta do
Whatever he can
For a little food

It’s hard times
That’s my excuse
I had no choice
It was me or you

It’s hard times
I’m saving myself
If it wasn’t me
They’d hire someone else

Turn over all your weapons
I don’t give a fuck
I’m only following orders
Now get in the truck
I’ll shoot you I’ll beat you
They pay me to cause you this pain
I’m only following orders
Now get on the train

It’s hard times
And I got a wife
And two young sons
To raise up right
It’s hard times
and So I prayed hard
To god for a job
and now I’m a guard
It’s hard times I say to myself
if it wasn’t me they’d hire someone else

you’re going to be re-located
get out of the house
I’m only following orders
to burn the place down
i’ve got to kill more men tomorrow
it’s gonna be such a mess
but I gotta follow their orders
or they’ll kill me next.


I’m only following orders it’s hard times
