Lyrics

VERSE 1 -
FIRST THING MY PAPA SAID BACK WHEN I WAS BORN
“YOU GOT TO LEARN TO SWING A HAMMER”
TOLD ME FIVE THOUSAND TIMES BEFORE I WAS FOUR
“YOU GOT TO LEARN TO SWING A HAMMER”

WELL, WAM BAM, HOT DAMN, GO GRAB THAT TOOLBOX MAN
AND LEARN TO SIWNG A HAMMER
‘CAUSE EVEN WHEN YOU GOT YOUR PLANS
YOU’RE GONNA WANT TO USE THEM HANDS
AND YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU LEARNED TO SWING A HAMMER

BRIDGE 1 -
WELL DON’T YOU WORRY BABY EVEN WHEN THINGS GET CRAZY
GONNA KEEP THAT BREAD ON OUR TABLE
AND NO I DON’T MEAN MAYBE ‘CAUSE I WASN’T RAISED UP LAZY
GONNA SWING THAT HAMMER LONG AS I’M ABLE, SO…


VERSE 2 -
FIRST THING I TOLD YOU SON BACK WHEN YOU WAS BORN
“YOU GOT TO LEARN TO SWING A HAMMER”
TOLD YOU FIVE THOUSAND TIMES BEFORE YOU WAS FOUR
“YOU GOT TO LEARN TO SWING A HAMMER”

SO, WAM BAM, HOT DAMN, GO GRAB THAT TOOLBOX MAN
AND LEARN TO SIWNG A HAMMER
‘CAUSE EVEN WHEN YOU GOT YOUR PLANS
YOU’RE GONNA WANT TO USE THEM HANDS
AND YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU LEARNED TO SWING A HAMMER

BRIDGE 2 -
NA, NA, NA, NA….YOU’VE GOT TO LEARN TO SWING A HAMMER

VERSE 3 -
FIRST THING MY PAPA SAID BACK WHEN I WAS BORN
“YOU GOT TO LEARN TO SWING A HAMMER”
TOLD ME FIVE THOUSAND TIMES BEFORE I WAS FOUR
“YOU GOT TO LEARN TO SWING A HAMMER”

NO IT DON’T MATTER WHAT THEY SAY NO IT DON’T MATTER WHAT THEY BE
JUST TURN TO ME AND LEARN TO SWING A HAMMER
NO IT DON’T MATTER WHAT THEY SAY YOUR SWEAT AND BLOOD WILL ALWAYS PAY
SO SAY OK AND LEARN TO SWING A HAMMER
