I need you up
Up on your feet
Let’s hit the floor
Let’s hit the street

Take notice of
The safety cones
We can watch the scene
From a safety zone

He’s not worried
About going to jail
His hard hat funk
Composed with hammer and nails

Work kills him slow
His life’s a loss
Boogie of death
Let’s fuckin kill the boss!

I’m the driller killer (Driller killer)
Come get this hard hat funk
I’m the driller killer (Driller killer)
I’ll kill the boss, that punk

The urban sun sets
(Air hot and sidewalk wet)
His muscles glisten
(Sticky with his sweat)

Come and dance with him
(Beneath the stars)
Construction beam high up
(So high above the cars)

Filled with rage to murder
(He’s just a village person)
A simple working man
(Dancing off his burden)

To make him come
(There are only two things)
Torturous killing-sprees
(And then there’s disco-funk)

Construction tape
Over the boss’s lips
Power saw in his gut
Ripping south past his hips

Slicing up into coleslaw
Gone beyond the law
Working through his flaws
With torture and dance

Inside the driller killer
A man who hates his job
Common everyman builder
Talk about miserables

The bell tolls 5 on the clock
Driller hits the lock
On the port-O-pot
Steps in, works over the boss

The foreman sold out
(A traitor to his class)
For a tiny pay raise
(For us to kiss his ass)

DK takes so much pleasure
(In doing bodily harm)
To that treacherous boss
(Witness his hard hat charm)

Brings down upon the nuts
(Full weight of a sledgehammer)
Flips the power switch
(On the jackhammer)

Looks into the eyes
(Of his deceiver)
Lowers it over the heart
(And slays his betrayer)
