Ah get a real job
wish I could just get a job
wouldn’t that be great
need it now – got no money – just can’t wait.
But, what’s a por boy to do?
Got no money and need some new shoes.
Can’t go out walking without shoes on my feet
get strange looks from the people I meet,
people say I look like a lazy slob,
and that’s the reason why I’m singing the blues.
Life shouldn’t be this hard.
Just go out and try; you’ve got nothing to lose.
Do whatever makes you happy,
but, what if what makes you happy doesn’t make you money.
Money isn’t everything I hear you say
and it’s the root of all evil, we’ve all seen the perils of that way.
When you think that you’ve been dealt a rotten card,
you probably got nothing to lose
why not let your hair down and sing the blues.
Are you feeling sick and tired?
Got no energy can’t be bothered trying.
Don’t believe all those blinkin lies
people just trying to fool us with their fancy alibis.
Find something that gives you a lift,
stop wallowing in your shit.
Be more discerning with the choices you choose,
If all else fails just sing the blues.
If you find it’s all a waste of time
go for a swim in the clear blue ocean
don’t be foolish by mixing with swine.
With a little bit of trust and a dash of luck
you can see a pearl grow from a spec of dust.
So, it’s all worth cherishing no matter how big or small
Sow the seed, give it a try
who cares what they say about you when you die.
Get off your bum and have some fun
you’ve got nothing to lose
join in the chorus and sing the blues.
