The Lyrics

The money is always greener
when somebody else's is paying
You dream about going up to work there
But that is a big mistake
Just look at the world around you
Right here on the Job Seeking floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin' for?

Under Employment
Under Employment
Darling it's a terror
Down where its no better
Take it from me
Up in employment they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin'
Full time to floatin'
Claiming is free

Down here all the people is happy
As off through the working day
The workers on the land ain't happy
They sad 'cause there not been paid
But workers in the factorys isnt lucky
They in for a worser fate
One day when the boss get hungry
Guess who's gon' be on the plate

Under unEmployment
Under unEmployment
Nobody claims It
sign it and enjoys it
In fricassee
We what the land folks loves to cook
Under unemployment we off the hook
We got no troubles
Life is smoking bubbles
Under unEmployment
Under unEmployment
Since life is sweet here
We got the beat here
Even the sturgeon an' the ray
They get the urge 'n' start to pay
We got the spirit
You got to hear it
Under unemloyment

The bankmen pay the taxes
The goverment pay the civil service
The managers pay the boss
And they soundin' sharp
The Boss pay the workers
The workers pay the taxes
The unemployed is the claimer of thoses taxes
The ray he can pay
The money on the honey
The banks are sold out
The bankers dont like the sting
The smelt and the sprat
They know where it's at
An' oh that money load

Under unemployment
Under unemployment
When you get beniffits
Begin the job seeking
It's music to me
What do they got? A lot of sand
We got a income supporting us band
Each little claim here
know how to jam here
Under unEmployment
Each little slug here
Cuttin' a money suck here
Under Employment
Each little snail here
Know having a wail with money here
That's why it's free
Under Unemployment
Ya we in luck here
Down in the muck here
