Genesis – Get 'em Out By Friday lyrics
John pebble of styx enterprises

Get em out by friday!
You don't get paid till the last ones well on his way.
Get em out by friday!
Its important that we keep to schedule, there must be no delay.

Mark hall of styx enterprises (otherwise known as the winkler)
I represent a firm of gentlemen who recently purchased this
House and all the others in the road,
In the interest of humanity weve found a better place for you
To go, go-woh, go-woh

Mrs. Barrow (a tenant)
Oh no, this I can't believe,
Oh mary, theyre asking us to leave.

Mr. Pebble
Get em out by friday!
I've told you before, s good many gone if we let them stay.
And if it isn't easy,
You can squeeze a little grease and our troubles will soon run away.

Mrs. Barrow
After all this time, they ask us to leave,
And I told them we could pay double the rent.
I don't know why it seemed so funny,
Seeing as how theyd take more money.
The winkler called again, he came here this morning,
With four hundred pounds and a photograph of the place he has found.
A block of flats with central heating.
I think were going to find it hard.

Mr. Pebble
Now weve got them!
I've always said that cash cash cash can do anything well.
Work can be rewarding
When a flash of intuition is a gift that helps you

Mr. Hall
Here we are in harlow new town, did you recognise your block
Across the square, over there,
Sadly since last time we spoke, weve found weve had to raise
The rent again,
Just a bit.

Mrs. Barrow
Oh no, this I can't believe
Oh mary, and we agreed to leave.

(a passage of time)
18/9/2012 T. V. Flash on all dial-a-program services

This is an announcement from genetic control:
It is my sad duty to inform you of a four foot restriction on
Humanoid height.

Extract from coversation of joe ordinary in local puborama
I hear the directors of genetic control have been buying all the
Properties that have recently been sold, taking risks oh so bold.
Its said now that people will be shorter in height,
They can fit twice as many in the same building site.
(they say its alright),
Beginning with the tenants of the town of harlow,
In the interest of humanity, theyve been told they must go,
Told they must go-go-go-go.

Sir john de pebble of united blacksprings international
I think I've fixed a new deal
A dozen properties - well buy at five and sell at thirty four,
Some are still inhabited,
Its time to send the winkler to see them,
Hell have to work some more.

Memo from satin peter of rock development ltd.
With land in your hand, youll be happy on earth
Then invest in the church for your heaven.
