Valley of Waste   (Ken Stewart)

My life is a week full of Mondays! Deadlines, the line is dead!
Outside everything is better off! I want to go back to bed!
(He needs to rest his head!)
My neighbour is a horrible man! Red tiles! The houses are red!
Built long ago! No accounting for taste! Iím living in a valley of waste!
(No accounting for taste!)
My boss wants his Ďpound of flesh!í Whips crack across my back!
Production lines, consumer items! Churning out the things I lack!
(He hopes he doesnít get the sack!)

 
Thereís people that do! and thereís people that donít!
We all look up to those that wonít! Nothings surer but nothing is safe!
Another day passes in the valley of waste!

My life is a week full of Mondays! Go!,go! Go! Go! I might collapse!
I didnít finish what I started last Friday I shouldíve stayed in bed!
(He should have used his head!)
My boss doesnít want me anymore! Automation put me out the door!
To the end of a very long dole queue! Who needs a fridge when youíre out in the cold?
(He shouldíve been told!)

 
Thereís people that do! and thereís people that donít!
We all look up to those that wonít! Nothings surer! but nothing is safe!
Another day passes in the valley of waste!

I light a cigarette! I think on what you said!
Why arenít you satisfied with your lot!   (Do something about it!)
Iím jumping up and down! I shake it all around!
Oh!  This is so frustrating!                     (Do something about it!)
I hear the penny drop! I hear you all say stop!
How can you sit there just complaining! (Do something about it!)
The valley of waste!
