The Lyrics

Construction is a job that can take a long time, to be sure. But sometimes it just feels like they're taking the piss...
Mmm-mmm, mmm-mmm, yeah-eah, not right
Ooh-ooh

Been in my home for a one-room extension
Thought you would get somewhere
In seven months, there's still not a hole there

It's not that hard to make somethin', just build somethin'
Make somethin', just build somethin'
Make somethin', just build somethin'
Not laid down one brick, no cement mix has been settin'
Why has nothin' been built? What I've paid for's not built, no, no
On cement bags, I keep trippin'
Can't you use them to build what I paid you to build? No, no, no
Would make too much sense, I'm bettin'
What are you waitin' for? Put on those hard hats
You can't be waitin' for somethin', got those bags
What are you waitin' for? Get up off your ass

Ev'ryone knows the joke 'bout slow-ass builders
Want to say that's unfair
But all I see is still-life scenes, no, I don't mean to spy
Ooh-ooh-whoa-oh-oh-ooh-whoa-oh-oh
You're spread all round my place

Takin' too long to make somethin', just build somethin'
Make somethin', just build somethin'
Make somethin', just build somethin'
Nothin's changed one bit, hammer in a nail or somethin'
No, all you do is mill around, makes me feel ill, no, no
"Waitin' on some parts"? Stop talkin'
You've got it all, just spilled your beer on them, so build, no, no, no
Don't you tell me that they're "rusted"
What are you waitin' for? Get on with your task
You can't be waitin' for somethin', got all that
What are you waitin' for? Slap on your hard hats
You can't be waitin' for permits, I've signed that
What are you waitin' for? Get those tools in hand
You can't be waitin' for weather, sky's clear, man
What are you waitin' for? Do your job at last
You can't be waitin' for nothin', don't be slack

You always say one day you'll make somethin'
But you've made nothin' at all
A constant claim you make to make somethin'
Promise worth nothin' at all
Want to exchange for mates who'll make somethin'
That would do nothin'

Cause this is, like, the sixth group who have not built shit, no, no
I just have to suffer all this
Mindless football gossip from a group of real dicks, no, no, no
Stop harrassin' random women
What am I payin' for? Not one laid brick slab
I know you hate me for callin' out your crap
What am I payin' for? All your beams lay flat
I know you hate me for provin' that you're slack
What am I payin' for? Barely shovelled crap
I know you hate me for "do your job" demands
What am I payin' for? Fillin' up my pad
I know you hate me for callin' your bossman

Not earned a break, you're paid to make somethin'
Yet you've made nothin' at all
Drive me insane with claims you'll make somethin'
Slack jerks make nothin' at all
Six months, five days, you've claimed you'll make somethin'
Besides "stains"? Nothin'

"But people just can't be arsed doing their jobs. That's the problem, y'know? It's, like, ah, apparently the number one profession people complain about in this country is builders, and I'm not surprised cause I've actually got builders in my house and I've had them there now...let me see, I'm 33 now...I've had them there as long as I can fucking remember." - Ed Byrne
