Just Who Is The 5 Oclock Hero - Lyrics by Jam, The


Lyrics

Hello darlin' - i'm home again
Covered in shit and aches and pains
Too knackered to think so give me time to come round
Just gimme the living room beat to the tv sound -
My hard earned dough goes in bills and the larder
And that prince philip tells us we gotta work harder!
It seems a constant struggle just to exist
Scrimping and saving and crossing of lists -

From this window i've seen the whole world pass
From dawn to dusk i've heard the last laugh laughed
I've seen enough tears to wash away this street
I've heard wedding bells chime and a funeral march
When as one life finishes another one starts -
Alright then love so i'll be off now
It's back to the lunchbox and worker/management rows
There's gotta be more to this old life then this
Scrimping and saving and crossing of lists
