LyricsEdit

Leisure


They taught me how to work,

But they can't teach me how to shirk correctly


As you see,

Science once again robs us of our jobs

They've put a micro-chip in my place,

I hide behind screen of aggression nowadays,

It's just a way of saving some face

So now I'm permanently drunk,

Like the rest of the race with,

Leisure


If you think I'm clowning,

I assure you that I'm drowning here in,

Leisure


They taught me how to work,

But they can't teach me how to shirk correctly


I spend all day,

And all my allowance on T.V. games

Amusement heaven at the flick of a switch

Instead of a lathe I busy my fingers nowadays,

By scoring goals with the gentlest twitch

I've forgotten how to use my legs to invade the pitch

Leisure


If you think I'm clowning,

I assure you that I'm drowning here in,

Leisure


They taught me how to work,

But they can't teach me how to shirk correctly


They had retired me 'fore I left school,

(just saw no point in the standing in line)

So I spend lots of time lounging at home,

(why not come in 'cos the carpet is fine)

What a waste of breath it is,

Searching for the jobs that don't exist

So now I'm permanently drunk,

Like the rest of the race with,

Leisure


If you think I'm clowning,

I assure you that I'm drowning here in,

Leisure


They taught me how to work,

But they can't teach me how to shirk correctly


Lazybones, looking through The Sun

How'd you ever expect to find your day's work ...?
