The Lyrics

I WANT WORK

I want work, but it's impossible
A man like me, so reprehensible,
A man like me is downright lazy,
Other men say I’m quite crazy.

I can't work, I’m thick as hell,
Can’t do nothing, and tired as well.
Never learnt a thing at school,
People say that I’m a fool.

But I want work, just an easy kind
I want work, that pays a ton
Won't tire me out, but feel like fun,
I want to work, that isn’t too hard,
That's the work I want, I want work.

I want work on my own terms
Though there’s nothing I've ever learned
Me, I’m useless and I’m slow,
Make a mess wherever I go.

So bring it on, but make it quick,
Don't give me work that makes me sick.
I only want an easy time,
A two-day week, that suits me fine.

But I want work, just an easy kind
I want work, that pays a ton
Won't tire me out, but feel like fun,
I want to work, that isn’t too hard,
That's the work I want, I want work.
