Verse Bit in ska rhythm (upstrummed chords... you know- it's a piece of
piss)

 Em1BGA
   You'll never make the charts if you sing about repression
 Em1BGA
   Because pretending to be in control is a national obsession
 Em1BGA
   Even when the self control is let loose as agression
 Em1BGA
  "Oh, you know, he doesn't mean it man, it's his natural expression"

Interludy bit betwixt verse 1 and 2

"It's his natural expression"

 Em1BGA
   Some say the constant hammering is following a beat
 Em1BGA
   And popsongs heard to pass the time will break up the routine

Chorus: (power chords)

 BEBE
In some hazy day pre-radio, you hear the hammers sing
 CGF#B
Now they shout above the popsongs, go unnoticed and give in

 BBGA
 BBGA
      Go unnoticed and give in

Verse 3

 Em1BGA
   Claims to break up the routine- becomes a part of it
 Em1BGA
   But no signs of improvement in the way the hammers hit
 Em1BGA
   You see the way the workers act when the chains relax a bit
 Em1BGA
   It indicates their mental state as happy clean and fit

Interlude bit again

A bunch of B majors some ska, then some not.... and stuff

Chorus bit again

 BEBE
 After day long happy tunes it's prime reaction time
 BEBE
 Blob out horizontal to the spectacle sublime
 CGCG
 Replacing conversation space with pleasantries that rhyme
 CGF#B
 "Have a good weekend folks just make sure you're back by 9"

 BBGA
 BBGA
      Just make sure you're back by 9

Verse 4

 Em1BGA
   So when the batteries went flat and the DJ went off air
 Em1BGA
   The atmosphere in the factory made everyone aware

Chorus again

 BEBE
They'd been replacing conversation space with dependency on sound
 CGF#B
So when the popsongs came back on, they turned the whole thing down
 CGF#B
So when the popsongs came back on, they turned the whole thing down
