Lyrics

No work, we just got paid
But we're not on our holidays
'Cause there's not much to do
When you got a big brother like you
We all have the right
To go work, well if you like
But we never do
'Cause we got a big brother like you
We got a big brother like you
Tell me where will it end
There'll be no work for the working men
We're all lined up with nothing to do
'Cause we got a big brother like you
Now all they ever say
'Cause there's no work for you today
So go and join the queue
With the other poor beggars like you
And all I ever hear
Is you're not qualified my dear
You need GCEs and a high IQ
If you want to join the chosen few
Be one of the chosen few
Tell me what can we do
There'll be no work for the likes of you
Sit around all day with nothing to do
'Cause we got a big brother like you
But oh how will it take
For you to make the same mistakes
For you will never turn back
Or try to find another way
Tell me where will it end
There'll be no work for the working men
We're all lined up with nothing to do
We'll sit around all day and listen to you
But you can say what you like but you haven't a clue
What a big brother should do
Now when the time is right
We'll call on everyone to fight
And we'll show them what to do
With another big brother like you
Another big brother like you
With another big brother, we'll turn the screws
With another big brother, we just can't lose
With another big brother, 'cause we won't choose
Another big brother like you
Another big brother like you
