The Lyrics

a song about being unemployed in Britain
Replaced by cheaper workers from Poland
The Job Centre Plus does the best it can
You're in the dole queue now
Oh you're in the dole queue now
Now you remember what the nice man said
Could be two months before you get paid
You're in the dole queue now
Oh you're in the dole queue now
You'll be the pariah of the neighbourhood
Everyone will think that you're no good
You're in the dole queue now
Oh you're in the dole queue now
Smiling faces as you go and sign on
But they lose your claim as soon as you're gone
You're in the dole queue now
Oh you're in the dole queue now

Lazy thoughts going through your head
Empty days going through your head
If you're looking for work, get out of bed
You're in the dole queue now
Oh you're in the dole queue now
Going to the cashpoint in the dead of night
To draw your dole, if it comes through right
You're in the dole queue now
Oh you're in the dole queue now

You got paid after a long hard fight
You survive each week, but it's really tight
You're in the dole queue now
Oh you're in the dole queue now
You're in the dole queue now
Oh you're in the dole queue now

Any sort of future you just can't see
You're losing friends and deeper in poverty
You're in the dole queue now
Oh you're in the dole queue, in the dole queue now
You're in the dole queue now
Oh you're in the dole queue now
You're in the dole queue now
In the dole queue now
Oh you're in the dole queue, in the dole queue now
Oh you're in the dole queue now
