I'm sick of working for a living,
I'm just ticking off the days till I die
Oh, I miss you Louise, – yeah...
And the sickest little pleasures keep me going in between pulling teeth

Oh periscope up – I've been looking for a ladder
I need to see the Commander in Chief..
And remind him what was passed onto me, oh..

Your mum don't sleep.
And the friends you keep.
I didn't raise a thief..
I didn't raise a thief!

But the Leaders of The Free World are just little boys throwing stones..
And it's easy to ignore till they're walking on the door of your home..

My thinking isn't driven
But the music always gives me a lift
I'm so easy to please, – yeah
But I think we dropped the baton like the 60's didn't happen, oh no!

Oh periscope up should be looking for a ladder
I need to see the Commander in Chief, ooh
And remind him what was passed onto you and me

Your mum don't sleep!
And the friends you keep!
I didn't raise a thief!
I didn't raise a thief!

But the Leaders of the Free World are just little boys throwing stones..
And it's easy to ignore till they're knocking on the door of your homes

But the Leaders of the Free World are just little boys throwing stones!
And it's easy to ignore till they're knocking on the door of your homes..

Passing the gun from father to feckless son
We're climbing a landslide where only the good die young,
Passing the gun from father to feckless son
We're climbing a landslide where only the good die young,
Passing the gun from father to feckless son…
