She leaves the office at 6 o'clock
Gets off at her bus stop and goes home
(Never thought she'd amount to anything
?)

Waits at the weekend for someone to call
Thinks she's beautiful, but she's plain
(Never thought it would be like this
Her life is something that she would rather miss)

And the dreams of the working girl
They're too strong for the world
And the dreams of the working girl
Help to color her monochrome world

He's quite happy just to be a prole
No longer on the dole, with the blues
(These are the dreams of the working girl
Everything's permitted in her world)

Girl at the office, got a crush on
He hopes that he's not wrong about her
(?'s what brings us together
Can't hold off human nature forever)

And the dreams of the working boy
They're too strong to destroy
And the dreams of the working girl
Help to color his black and white world

She wants so much to fall in love
And she wants so much to rise up above
This capital city that we're all scared of
She wants it all but she doesn't know
Where to start believing in all the truth
She wants so much to fall in line with you
And we all dream too,
But what she's dreaming of
It's in our music, in our films, our books
And our love
