Stranglers – Always The Sun lyrics

How many times have you woken up and prayed for the rain?
How many times have you seen the papers apportion the blame?
Who gets to say, who gets the work and gets to play?
I was always told at school, everybody should get the same
How many times have you been told, if you don't ask you don't get?
How many liars have taken your money, your mother said you shouldn't
Who has the fun, is it always the man with the gun?
Someone must have told him, if you work too hard you can sweat
There's always the sun
There's always the sun
Always, always, always the sun
How many times have the weathermen told you stories that made you laugh?
Y'know it's not unlike the politician and the leaders when they do
Things by half
Who gets the job, of pushing the knob
That sort of responsibility you draw straws for, if you're mad enough
There's always the sun
There's always the sun
Always, always, always the sun
