Blue Arsed Fly

Alarm clock rings, ungodly hour, take a shower, nightmare,
Breakfast, coffee, hit the town ,hit the pedal, foot down,
Red light, roadworks, they're digging up the universe,
Gridlock, beat the clock, need a leak but can't stop.

Trains late, in a state, crammed in sardine tin,
Escalator can't pass, stuck behind a lardarse,
Revolving doors too slow, running late, touch and go,
,Network down, a frozen screen, all seems like a bad dream,

Oh, to sit and watch the world go by,
Why must I buzz around like a blue arsed fly(x2)

Internet at a crawl, photocopier broke and all,
Pens that write in morse code, stapler has no fixed abode,
Brownie points, can't compete, won't be worker of the week,
Manager a total pratt, arse licker, kick the cat.

Wall to wall, no time to think, headless chicken at the brink,
Work through lunchtime ,try to catch up, watch your step, watch your back,
All work no play, the modern way, lackaday,
Grabasnack, Burgermac, heading for the cardiac.

Oh, to sit and watch the world go by,
Why must I buzz around like a blue arsed fly(x2)

In the kazi, don't be long, time to sing the company song,
Hit the keys, stare at the screen, information, primal scream,
System crash, cut a dash, Jack Flash, earn the cash,
Holiday, St Tropez, convalesce not holiday.

Why did we invent machines, to fulfil our wildest dreams,
Who's the master, who's the slave, spend and save, to your grave,
Logoff, bogoff, braindead, when all is said,
Hit the bottle, hit the can, let the shit hit the fan,

Oh, to sit and watch the world go by,
Why must I buzz around like a blue arsed fly(x2)


Mortgage for a thousand years, get in debt up to your ears,
Kids a pain, a money drain, new bike, new trainers,
All the while, lifestyle, four wheel drive a country mile,
Sell your lkife expectancy, lemmings headed to the sea.

Oh, to sit and watch the world go by,
Why must I buzz around like a blue arsed fly(x2)
