Gotta Serve Somebody Lyrics

Play "Gotta Serve Somebody"
on Amazon Music

You may be an ambassador to England or France
You may like to gamble, you might like to dance
You may be the heavyweight champion of the world
You may be a socialite with a long string of pearls.

But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes...

    This song by Bob Dylan can certaintly makes you think about 'Who are you serving really? or 'Who are you really working for? Man, i think it is not as simple to understand our position of work we are doing in our everyday life to make a choice between the two. If most people will realize who are they really serving in their society part of the world that they are living in, we could have a total collapse of the economy by most of us quitting our jobs when all the people wake up to really realize who are they serving, 'cause most of us according to this song do not serve the Lord JESUS CHRIST in GOD.

    There are only two choices - if you don't serve the Lord, you serve the devil.

    I think it means you must make choices in life, do you follow the lord or do you follow the devil.
