New Order – Working Overtime lyrics
Who's that over there
Looks like he don't care
Almost lost his time
Too much working overtime

Gotta get up every night
Sit against an open wide
Gonna get away from here
Take that car and push that gear

You turn me in no one
He's the rising sun
He wont share no tears
Got no time to break down here, Hey!

He's going nowhere fast
Just a piece of dirty trash
All alone by himself
He don't need nobody else

Walking down the street
So much going on
People everywhere
Look at him but they don't care

See that world out there
Make it go away
You can change his mind
Too much working overtime
Hey! Overtime [5x]
Overtime [4x]

He crossed that wicked line
In trouble all the time
Where did it all go wrong
Hands easy all night long

All those girls out there
Looking for the one
Do they really care
Could they just be having fun

He did all he could
Try to get it right
Somewhere he went wrong
Too much working overtime
Hey! Overtime [5x]
Overtime [4x]
