Mees Dierdorp (Swing Version)

You may be an ambassador to England or France
You may like to gamble, you might like to dance
You may be thee heavyweight champion of the world
You might be a socialite with a long string of pearls

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well  it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

Might be a rock ’n’ roll addict prancing on the stage
Might have drugs at your command, women in a cage
You may be a businessman or some high-degree thief
They may call you Doctor or they may call you Chief

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes you are
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

You may be a state trooper, you might be a young Turk
May be the head of some big TV network
You may be rich or poor, you may be blind or lame
May be living in another country under another name

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes you are
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

May be a construction worker working on a home
Might be livin in a mansion, ya might live in a dome
You may own guns and you may even own tanks
You may be somebody’s landlord, you may even own banks

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil it a, might be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

You may be a preacher preachin’ spiritual pride
May be a city councilman takin bribes on the side
May be workin’ in a barbershop, you may know how to cut hair
You may be somebody’s mistress, may be somebody’s heir

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

Might like to wear cotton, might like to wear silk
Might like to drink whiskey, might like to drink milk
Might like to eat caviar, ya might like to eat bread
May be sleepin on the floor, sleepin in a king-sized bed

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

A you may call me Terry, a you may call me Timmy
You may call me Bobby, a you may call me Zimmy
You may call me R.J., you may call me Ray
You may call me anything, no matter what you say

Still gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil an it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody
