about

i wrote this track some time ago, just on the subject of being a man in the modern world, from my own point of view at the time, anyway.

lyrics

I get up early, get out of bed
Shake the cobwebs from my head
Put on my clothes, switch on the TV
While i try to figure out what's wrong with me

Uh huh, oh yeah, i'm an undereducated member of the public
Uh huh, oh yeah, pay no attention to me
Uh huh, oh yeah, i'm a money scrounging student who has no rights
Uh huh, oh yeah, what else could i be?

Well i'm overdomesticated and my brain's gone numb
I'll never get a job 'cause i'm a lower class bum
Yes i know i'll never be any use
As i stumble down the stairs and drink some orange juice

Uh huh, oh yeah, i'm an undereducated member of the public
Uh huh, oh yeah, pay no attention to me
Uh huh, oh yeah, i'm a money scrounging student who has no rights
Uh huh, oh yeah, what else could i be?

Think of all the things i could do
If i put my mind to the job
Don't you think i'm just a bit like you
Or do you think you're different from the mob?
