My telephone wakes me in the morning
Have to get up to answer the call.
So I think I'll go back to the family
Where no one can ring me at all.

Living this life has its problems
So I think that I'll give it a break.
Oh, I'm going back to the family
'Cause I've had about all I can take.

Master's in the counting house
Counting all his money.
Sister's sitting by the mirror
She thinks her hair looks funny.
