Career Opportunities Lyrics


    The offered me the office, offered me the
    They said i'd better take anything they'd got
    Do you wanna make tea at the bbc?
    Do you wanna be, do you really wanna be a cop?

    Career opportunities are the ones that never knock
    Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
    Career opportunity, the ones that never knock

    I hate the army an' i hate the r.a.f.
    I don't wanna go fighting in the tropical heat
    I hate the civil service rules
    And i won't open letter bombs for you

    Bus driver....ambulance man....ticket inspector

    They're gonna have to introduce conscription
    They're gonna have to take away my prescription
    If they wanna get me making toys
    If they wanna get me, well, i got no choice


    Ain't never gonna knock
