Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap is a song by the Australian hard rock band AC/DC. It is inspired by a cartoon guitarist Angus Young watched as a child, Beany and Cecil, in which the villain, Dishonest John, had a business card that read "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Holidays, Sundays, and Special Rates." It features a backing vocal consisting of a heavy breathing sound, made on the downbeat during verses. It also features the title in a spoken-word style at the end of the chorus; plus a scream at the end of the song. The full length recording (approximately 4:11) has the title of the song chanted four times starting at 3:09, but on the more common edited version (approximately 3:51) the chant is heard only twice.

LyricsEdit

If you're having trouble with the high school head
He's giving you the blues
You want to graduate but not in his bed
Here's what you gotta do
Pick up the phone, I’m always home
Call me anytime,
Just ring, 36 24 36
I lead a life of crime

Dirty deeds done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds and they're done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds and they're done dirt cheap

You've got problems in your life of love
You got a broken heart
He's double dealing with your best friend
That's when the teardrops start fella
Pick up the phone, I’m here alone
Or make a social call
Come right in, forget about him
We'll have ourselves a ball

Dirty deeds done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds and they're done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds and they're done dirt cheap

If you got a lady and you want her gone
But you ain't got the guts
She keeps nagging at you night and day
Enough to drive you nuts
Pick up the phone
Leave her alone
It's time you made a stand
For a fee
I’m happy to be
Your back door man

Dirty deeds done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds and they're done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds and they're done dirt cheap

Concrete shoes, cyanide, T.N.T.
Done dirt cheap
Neck ties, contracts, high voltage
Done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds, do anything you want me to
Done dirt cheap
Dirty deeds, dirty deeds
Dirty deeds, done dirt cheap
