The Boss is a Lord of an earlier Day Work when they want Work when they say Go on! - Work your whole life away! A cog in a machine A life-long bad dream But you never can win Only can lose A mean old thing is Working Life Blues (Chorous) A bum if you don't A mug if you do The life of a drone Make stuff you'll never use Make stuff you'll never own Just to get by Just to pay your dues A mean old thing is Working Life Blues A slave but by name A real loser's game They'll tell you! - Your Free! But you aren't! They'll tell you! - You Can! But you can't! Cos there's no other choice you get to choose A mean old thing is Working Life XXXXX XXXXXXXXX XX XX XXX X XXXXX XX XXXX XX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XX XXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXXX X XXXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXX XX XXXXX
