4...Why!
must we be put down when we try to get away Why ?
must we all grow up when we could just play and play Good ?
things in life are free Can't,
buy everything - that's true Only.
one thing wrong with that What;
I don't buy I don't use Only.

thing I'm thinking of is why are we all here There ?
must be more to do at nights than drinking rotten beer The.
world's a very shady place and, you can't trust a soul "grin.
and bear it" seemed the thing When,
it just gets a hold At.

a later date I, come out a fright At.
a later date I, hope that you're alright Human.

beings are dangerous and they call me in the dark But.
everything gets twice as cold in marching for a lark There's.
loads of things I'd like to do if, I could find a time Working.
really tires me and I think I'll turn to crime At.

a later date I, come out a soon At.
a later date before, we hit the moon I.

just can't be bothered to make an effort here at all People.
make your paying contributions all too small I.
just can't be bothered to make an effort here at all People.
make your paying contributions all too small At.

a later date I'll, be awful great At.
a later date someone, somewhere blew it At.
a later date At.
a later date
