The Lyrics

This is a true story. It happened to a friend of a friend of mine!
It's hard to make a living
Selling produce to the rich
Ain't worth his time, don't get paid a dime
Ain't that a bitch!
Oh oh oh, he's a work experience man

His living has been yobbo
Been on compo since 1989
Said he had a crook back
Migrane, toothache and piles
Oh oh oh, he's a work experience man

He is in a lot of trouble
By the imposin' tax man
He went out to investigate
While yobbo was on the can
He's a lazy man
Who's on the dole
In a conservative land
Oh, he's a work experience man

They'll lock him in jail
For fraud maybe 20 or his life
Nothing in this world
To prepare him for this strife
So he is workin' tomorrow
Cause him to be out of his mind
For now he is doin' work experience
Take it one day at a time
Oh oh oh, he's a work experience man
Oh oh oh, he's a work experience man
oh yeah
Yes he is
Well he's a work experience man
Oh
Ma ma, I tell ya he's a work experience man
Work experience
Work experience man
Yes he is
Work experience
Work experience man
I wanna tell ya he's a work experience man
Work experience
Work experience man
Ma ma ma
I got to tell you he's a work experience man
Work experience
Work experience man
Work experience
Work experience man
I tell ya he's a work experience man
Work experience
Work experience man
Work experience
Work experience man
I tell ya he's a work experience man
