COMES A SALESMAN

Have a look at all you’ve got, from clothing to the music box 

Nothing changes hands if not, for the salesman

The maker of the goods you see, moves his stuff from A to B

To do the job he pays a fee, comes a salesman

 

chorus

HE’S GOTTA KNOCK ONCE, KNOCK TWICE KEEP ON CALLING TIL IT’S RIGHT,

SHOW THE PRODUCT SET THE PRICE CLOSE THE DEAL AND SAY GOOD NIGHT 

HE’S GOTTA KNOCK ONCE KNOCK TWICE FIND A BUYER ONE THAT’S RIGHT 

TELL HIS STORY SET THE PRICE CLOSE THE DEAL AND SAY GOOD NIGHT.

 

For a home or a holiday, sporty cars or games to play 

For anything that you might crave, call a salesman 

Food we need, chains of gold, politics ‘n’ religion told 

Everything we’ve got is sold, by a salesman 

 

Chorus

 

Convince your boss, persuade your wife, children wangle your last dime 

Look around and you will find, we are all salesman 

Sell your heart, do your part, move those goods from dawn till dark 

Keep on knockin’ that’s your goal, but don’t sell your soul 

 

Chorus

 

“Give us your pitch now” 

HE’S GOTTA KNOCK ONCE, KNOCK TWICE 

KEEP ON CALLING TIL IT’S RIGHT,

SHOW THE PRODUCT SET THE PRICE 

CLOSE THE DEAL AND SAY GOOD NIGHT
