  1. I just discovered this song. I like its lyrics very much.

    I remember Sally from number four
    She always had boys queueing up at her door
    She wasn’t so good looking, but she seemed to have such fun
    While I had none, I asked my Mum, “How come?”
    Mother said Sally was loose and cheap
    And girls like that ended up on the street
    Not like me, I was good, you see

    Now I saw Sally in the deli today
    She’s a lady now in every way
    So darn rich, people tell me she’s a witch
    With lovers by the score, do I have to tell you more

    Oh, you’ve got to be a hustler if you want to get on
    Principles can only hold you back
    The only women makin’ it are women who are shakin’ it
    They’re faking all their morals on the mat
    It’s an act, it’s a fact
    You’ve got to be a hustler if you want to make a name
    Bein’ good can only get you hurt
    Chastity and virtue never brought a woman fame
    And men will always crave a cunning flirt

    When you read the newspapers every day
    There’s always some hussy that’s having her way
    By dating someone famous, she makes herself a name
    And no one blames her, I guess we’d all do the same

    But then they get married and before you know
    She wants divorce and half of his dough
    Gets herself a lawyer who’s a really shrewd guy
    And get’s the judge’s sympathy by crying and crying

    Yes, you’ve got to be a hustler if you want to get on
    Principles can only hold you back
    The only women makin’ it are women who are shakin’ it
    They’re faking all their morals on the mat
    It’s an act, it’s a fact
    You’ve got to be a hustler if you want to make a name
    Bein’ good can only get you hurt
    Chastity and virtue never brought a woman fame
    And men will always crave a cunning flirt

    Well, the next time it happens as she starts to write
    Of her schemes through the days and her men through the nights
    And even though it’s tasteless, the book sells coast to coast
    On all the chat shows, you can see her boast

    And now they’re makin’ a film of the book
    And no one gives a damn that the girl was a “Huh”
    They’ve got posters obscene, now she’s mixin with the cream
    No one even cares what she’s done or where she’s been

    Ooh, you’ve got to be a hustler if you want to get on
    Principles can only hold you back
    The only women makin’ it are women who are shakin’ it
    They’re faking all their morals on the mat
    It’s an act, it’s a fact
    You’ve got to be a hustler if you want to make a name
    Bein’ good can only get you hurt
    Chastity and virtue never brought a woman fame
    And men will always crave a cunning flirt

    Yes, you’ve got to be a hustler if you want to get on
