The Lyrics

When your sore hands try to tighten screws down
And you are getting irate.
Throw screwdrivers away
Then go and find your buddy
And grab his pounding tool.
Then watch your thumb, but don't wait

Go beat screws with your tool.
Hold the hammer over your head, high.
Beat screws with your tool now,
Let the hammer fly,
Beat screws with your tool.

You're unfettered, you feel better
With brute force that's blunt,
Yeah, give those damn screws a whack!
That's great hardware, now!
When you roughly pound
Those spiraled devils down.
So you go on the attack.


Align it 'fore you whack, or you'll make your foot lame.
A bit too far to the right,
And you might smash it now.
The thud'll sound like beating a soft tom-tom now
And you'll be yelling your plight.

You beat screws with your tool.
Then you must maintain a gimlet eye.
Beat screws with your tool now,
Pound 'em out of sight.
Beat screws with your tool.

Pound, pound, pound, beat screws with your tool! (4x)

I saw the name John Barry and the words "beating" and "tool" and I thought I was on Whatfreaks for a minute.
