They often look so mean and miserable
With their cross faces and briefcases.

During the week they long for the weekend
But even when work’s done they don’t have fun.

They’ve forgotten what it’s like to wake up earger for endless hours of eye spying and kite flying.

Now all they ever do is talk to each other about on mobile phones about home loans.

And wait for the future to relax with pipe dreams and pension schemes.
