G G/f# Em7
Will you still love me, will you still hug me,
[Cadd9] When Iā??[G]m eighty[D] four,
G G/f# Em7
When Iā??ve been working all my life,
[A7] And Iā??m still blood[D]y [D7]poor?
[G] Dust in my lungs,[G7] a broken back,
[C] Still canā??t retire i[A7]t hurts,
G G/f# Em7 Cadd9
Well Iā??m all for workersā?? rights and that,
As long as [G] I donā??t [D]have to[G] work,
[D] So hats off to the [Cadd9]schemers, to the scroungers, to the r[G]ats,
To the o[D]nes who sleep on [Cadd9]mattresses on the floor, clutching baseball b[G]ats,
To the b[D]eggars and the c[Cadd9]heaters and the kings who rise at n[G]oon,
To the [Am]scoundrels, the misfits, the p[C]arasites, this oneā??s fo[D]r you,
ā??Donā??t send me on another New Deal course, I can already spell my name, you lot take the p**sā??
Maybe Iā??ll never shoot a rabbit,
Perhaps Iā??ll never drink champagne,
But thatā??s alright with me,
I prefer cider anyway,
Iā??m happy doing nothing,
They tell me itā??s all a waste,
But I ainā??t never seen no 3 piece suit,
With a smile on his face,
ā??I searched all the newspapers and made my CV, I swear there just ainā??t nothing out thereā??
A 9 to 5, 5 days a week,
Is bottom of my list,
I just couldnā??t live with myself,
Knowing there was something that I missed,
So donā??t go telling me ā??Take it seriouslyā??,
Believe me I do,
But lifeā??s for living, not for working,
And I got better things to do,
[end on G, presumably]
