{ 1 phrase guitar alone }

{ 3 phrase band }

They get up every morning from their long clock's warning
Take the eight fifteen into the city
There's a whistle up above and people push and people shoving
and the girl's who try to look pretty
and if your train's on time you can get to work by nine
and start to sleep and talk to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day
