"I Quit" as written by Colin Leslie Campsie and Phil Thornalley....
There was a time when
I would go walking backwards
Round the world if you said you're mine
And I'd run blindfold down the
Kings Road Monday morning
If you'd just for once arrive on time
But you turned into another liar
And you came on like a new Messiah
So before you say what you desire
I'm telling you nowÅ 

I Quit! I Quit!
'cause loving you's a job I don't need
Ain't gonna go to work no more
I Quit! I Quit!
The situation's vacant for me
Ain't gonna go to work no more
Ain't gonna go to work no more
Ain't gonna go to work

I got my hands dirty whole you rolled cigarettes
With one eye on the time
I tried my hardest, I've been conscientious
But I'm taking back that heart of mine
You can't roll me round your tongue no more baby
It's time to clear up your emotional debris
And if I'm falling overboard, please don't save me
'cause I'm telling you nowÅ 

I Quit! I Quit!
'cause loving you's a job I don't need
Ain't gonna go to work no more
I Quit! I Quit!
The situation's vacant for me
Ain't gonna go to work no more
Ain't gonna go to work no more
Ain't gonna go to work

It's too late to say you're sorry
You're just like every other lover
A shot rings out and you go running for cover
And I'm so sorry that I can't be your mother
And I'm telling you nowÅ 

I Quit! I Quit!
'cause loving you's a job I don't need
Ain't gonna go to work no more
I Quit! I Quit!
The situation's vacant for me
Ain't gonna go to work no more
Ain't gonna go to work no more
Ain't gonna go to work

I Quit! I Quit! I Quit! I Quit! I Quit! I Quit!
Ain't gonna go to work no more
Ain't gonna go to work no more
Ain't gonna go to work
