Richard Dawson

"Civil Servant"

[Verse 1]
Open your eyes, time to wake up
sh*t, shower, brush your teeth, drain your cup
Wolf down a bowl of Ready-Brek
Fasten a tie around your neck

[Pre-Chorus]
All over the city we arise, arise
For a job we despise, despise, despise

[Chorus]
I don't want to go into work this morning
I don't think I can deal with the wrath of the general public
And I don't have the heart to explain to another poor soul
Why it is their Disability Living Allowance will be stopping shortly

[Verse 2]
Busfulls of meat slumped in our seats
Staring at phone screens and our own feet
Shuffling off at the business park
Let's linger awhile in the smoking bubble

[Pre-Chorus]
From every direction we arrive, arrive
With a swipe of the fob, the fob, the fob, the fob

[Chorus]
I don't want to go back to that seething viper's nest
I can't listen anymore to the bleating of the terminally depressed
Or the stream of opinions from the creep in the office next to mine
I dream of bashing his skull into a brainy pulp with a Sellotape dispenser

[Verse 3]
In the staff room, lost in a daze
Shovelling crisps into my face
After an unspeakably awful
Call with a grieving mother
In Wetherspoons on the fruit-machines
Sinking my umpteenth Peroni
Cackling like a hyena
At the nasty jokes of my colleagues
None of whom I can stand

[Pre-Chorus]
In my bed, I can hear the strangled voices
Of all the people I've failed, I've failed, I've failed

[Chorus]
I don't want to go into work this morning
I just want to lie here and play the new Call of Duty
I finally gathered the courage to ring in sick

[Outro]
I'm not coming into work today
I'm really ill
Not coming into work today
Or for that matter any other day
I'm sick to my soul
I refuse to do this dirty work anymore
I refuse, refuse, refuse, refuse
Refuse, refuse, refuse
