"Happiness and Penniless" as written by and David Jackson David Healey....
Well he's watching all the wealthy folk on his way to work,
Saturday's so far away theres so much shit to shurk,
He's gotta keep his chin up,
He's gotta keep his nerve,
but he just wants to skin up,
Sit down,
And flaming well sod those who he serves,

'Cus whats the use in money if you've got no time to use it?
He dont wanna sell his life to you,
still he'd rather have his time than a bob or two,

But you cant find the money for your rent,
Or to pay the laundry lent,
You better turn to god 'cus your up shit creak,
And your sailing into hell,
You'll be wailing when they sell your soul to the repo man,

And now he's unemployed,
He lives off milk and bread,
His graduate account is so far in the red,
He listened to his heart when he should have used his head,
He suffers for his art,
He's so skint his tenancy is hanging by a thread,

And now he's got the time,
But he has'ent got the money,
to do the things that people do,
Still he'd rather have his time than a bob or two,

But you cant find the money for your rent,
Or to pay the laundry lent,
You better turn to gos 'cus your up shit creak,
And your sailing into hell,
You'll be wailing when they sell your soul to the repo man,

All of his money is gone,
What did he spend it all on?
He's never had so much fun,
All of his money has gone,

Oh no,
Now my last penny has been spent,
still my life is heaven sent,
'Cus i've got my friends to help me through this time,
I'll repay you in the end dont you worry,
I promise you i'll pay you back with time,

Find the money for your rent,
or to pay the laundry lent,
you better turn to god 'cus your up shit creak,
And your sailing into hell,
you'll be wailing when they sell your soul to the repo man,
Find the money for your rent
Find the money for your rent
