Wake up, shake up, shut up, and let’s get down to Brass Tacks
 
I want the word like a sum of destructions
I want the story like a bride stripped bare
I don’t want the fat if I can’t have the axe
So wake up, shake up, shut up, and let’s get down to Brass Tacks
 
I want a plain deal like a ticklish catastrophe
I want the nail and a hammer of glass
I don’t want your ass if I can’t have the facts
So wake up, shake up, shut up, and let’s get down to Brass Tacks
 
I don’t want to go halfway
I don’t want a half-baked crust
I don’t want a passion play
‘Cause that ain’t worth an ounce of dust
 
So throw away the baggage
And empty the sacks
Or go ahead and pack up the package if you can’t get down to Brass Tacks
 
I want the word like a sum of destructions
I want the story like a bride stripped bare
I don’t want the fat if I can’t have the axe
So wake up, shake up, shut up, and let’s get down to Brass Tacks
 
Wake up, shake up, shut up, and let’s get down to Brass Tacks
Wake up, shake up, shut up, and let’s get down to Brass Tacks
