[G] Will you still [G/F#]love me, [Em7] will you still hug me,
[Cadd9] When I?m [G]eighty f[D]our,
[G] When I?ve been [G/F#]working [Em7] all my life,
[A7] And I?m still bloody [D]po[D7]or?
[G] Dust in my lungs,[G7] a broken back,
[C] Still can?t retire it [A7]hurts,
Well I?m [G] all for [G/F#]workers? [Em7]rights and t[Cadd9]hat,
As long as [G] I don?t ha[D]ve to w[G]ork,
[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 one?s for [D] you,
?Don?t send me on another New Deal course, I can already spell my name, you lot take the piss?
Maybe I?ll never shoot a rabbit,
Perhaps I?ll never drink champagne,
But that?s alright with me,
I prefer cider anyway,
I?m happy doing nothing,
They tell me it?s all a waste,
But I ain?t never seen no 3 piece suit,
With a smile on his face,
?I searched all the newspapers and made my CV, I swear there just ain?t nothing out there?
A 9 to 5, 5 days a week,
Is bottom of my list,
I just couldn?t live with myself,
Knowing there was something that I missed,
So don?t go telling me ?Take it seriously?,
Believe me I do,
But life?s for living, not for working,
And I got better things to do,
[end on G, presumably]
