   Will you still love me,    will you still hug me,
Cadd9       G       D
   When Im eighty four,
G                 G/F#    Em7
   When Ive been working    all my life,
A7                      D D7
   And Im still bloody poor?
G                   G7
   Dust in my lungs,  a broken back,
C                        A7
   Still cant retire it hurts,
            G         G/F#     Em7         Cadd9
   Well Im   all for workers rights and that,
              G           D      G
   As long as   I dont have to work,

D                     Cadd9                                G
   So hats off to the schemers, to the scroungers, to the rats,
           D                Cadd9                                        G
   To the ones who sleep on mattresses on the floor, clutching baseball bats,
           D               Cadd9                              G  
   To the beggars and the cheaters and the kings who rise at noon,
          Am                            C                        D
   To the scoundrels, the misfits, the parasites, this ones for    you,

[NO GUITAR]
Dont send me on another New Deal course, I can already spell my name, you lot take the piss

Maybe Ill never shoot a rabbit,
Perhaps Ill never drink champagne,
But thats alright with me,
I prefer cider anyway,
Im happy doing nothing,
They tell me its all a waste,
But I aint never seen no 3 piece suit,
With a smile on his face,

[CHORUS]

[NO GUITAR]
I searched all the newspapers and made my CV, I swear there just aint nothing out there

A 9 to 5, 5 days a week,
Is bottom of my list,
I just couldnt live with myself,
Knowing there was something that I missed,
So dont go telling me Take it seriously,
Believe me I do,
But lifes for living, not for working,
And I got better things to do,

[CHORUS]
