"Jack of all trades" in lyrics

Over and over, I dig up dirt on the Inquisition times
Only those, executed by burning, know
What it feels like being turned into ashes.
I'm a jack of all trades. (0)
God gives horns to my butting cow.(1)
My force is not brute.

Rita Lee - Pagu


Say I heard my papa was a jack of all trades
Is that what papa sent to an early grave?
Folks say papa would beg, borrow or steal just

George Michael - Killer/Papa was a rollin' stone

Means I’m coming home my friend

Did you steal my name?
Oh, you Jack of all trades
You’re the master of none
Oh, the race has begun

George Ezra - Did You Hear the Rain?

I fear I'll die from complications, complications due to things that I've left undone
That all my debts will be left unpaid, feel like a cripple without a cane
I'm like a jack of all trades who’s a master of none

Then there's my father he's always looking on the bright side

City and Colour - The Grand Optimist

Over and over, I defy the Inquisition
only those who ever have died in the fire
know what feels to be the coal.
I'm a jack-of-all-trades
God gave wings to my snake

Rita Lee - Pagu

No fame or fortune,
No luck of the draw
When I dance with Queen of Hearts
A jack of all trades
But, a loser in love
It's tearing my soul apart

Whitesnake - Gambler

I ain't sayin' U're better, baby, I ain't sayin' U're not
I ain't sayin' anything until U stop
Baby, don't hold me back cuz baby, I.. baby I need a jack 4 all trades
A mind and body well made

Prince - Crucial

I make a mess in the Inquisition
Only those who died on the fire
Know what is like being a coal
I'm Jack of all trades
My adder can see
My strength isn't brute

Maria Rita - Pagu

Parade of one

I wanna be a parade
Hear the call me the jack of all trades
I'm passing by your house today
So cheer for me, I'll be okay

Donots - Parade Of One

Here's to your wink when my body was hurt,
here's to you.
To the hearts with no filling,
to jack-of-all-trades people,
here's to you.
To those taking up their past,

Macaco - Here's to you

I am the red mage, I can do it all
Both kinds of magic and swordplay too, y'all
So many skills that it takes to be a hero
A jack of all trades but the master of zero
What am I great at? Nothin' I'm told
You see I always get the bronze but never the gold

brentalfloss - Ballad of the Mages

And the juice of the barley for me"

Well, from that day to this, I have wandered alone
I'm a jack of all trades and a master of none
With the sky for me roof and the earth for me floor
And I'll dance out my days drinking whiskey galore
