Ring! Ring! It's seven A.M.!
Move y'self to go again
Cold water in the face
Brings you back to this awful place
Knuckle merchants and you bankers too,
Must get up-an learn those rules
Weather man and the crazy chief
One says sun and one says sleet
A.M. the F.M. the P.M. too
Churning out that boogaloo
Gets you up and gets you out
But how long can you keep it up?
Gimme Honda gimme Sony
So cheap and real phony
Hong Kong dollars + Indian cents
English pounds & Eskimo pence

★You lot! what? don't stop!
Give it all you got!

Working for a rise, better my station
Take my baby to sophistication
She's seen the ad's,
She thinks it's nice
Better work hard-
I seen the price
Never mind that it's time for the bus
We got to work-
An you're one of us
Clocks go slow in a place of work
Minutes drag and the hours jerk

("When can I tell 'em wot I do?
In a second maaar... oright chuck!")

Wave bub-bub-bub bye to the boss
It's our profit-it's his loss
But anyway lunch bells ring
Take I hour and do your thanng!
Cheeesboiger!

What do we have for entertainment?
Cops kickin' Gypsies on the pavement
Now the news-snap to attention!
The lunar landing of the dentist convention
Italian mobster shoots a lobster
Sea-food restaurant gets out of hand
Wanna car in the fridge
Or a fridge in the car?
Like cowboys do in T.V. land

★ Repeat

So get back to work an sweat some more
The sun will sink an we'll get out the door
It's no good for man to work in cages
Hits the town, he drinks his wages
You're frettin' you're sweatin'
But did you notice you ain't gettin'?
You're frettin' you're sweatin'
But did you notice you ain't gettin'?
Don't you ever stop long enough to start
To get your car outta that gear?
Don't you ever stop long enough to start
To get your car outta that gear?
Kario Marx and Fredrich Engels
Came to the checkout at the 7-11
Marx was skint-but he had sense
Engels lent him the neccessary pence

What have we got? Yeh-o, magnificence!!

★★ Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi
Went to the park to check on the ball
But they was murdered by the other team
Who went on to win-50-nil
You can be true, you can be false
You be given the same reward
Socrates and Milhous Nixon
Both went the same way-thru the kitchen
Plato the Greek or Rin-Tin-Tin?
Who's more famous to the billion millions?
News Flash!
Vacuum cleaner sucks up budgie
Ooh bub-bye! magnificence!
