They offered me the office
Of a video shop.
They said I better take anything they'd got.
Do you wanna make tea at the BBC?
Do you wanna, wanna,
Do you really wanna be a cop?

Career opportunities,
The ones that never knock,
Every job they offer you's to keep you out the dock,
Career opportunities,
The one that never knocks.

I hate the army and I hate the RAF,
I don't go fighting in the Irish heat.
I hate the civil service rules,
I won't open letter bombs for you.

Career opportunities,
The one that never knocks,
Every job they offer you's to keep you out the dock,
Career opportunities,
The one that never knocks.

Bus driver!
Ambulance man!
Ticket inspector!
They don't understand...

They’re gonna have
To introduce conscription,
They're gonna have
To take away my prescription.
If they wanna get me making toys,
If they wanna get me,
Well I got no choice.

Career opportunities,
The one that never knocks,
Every job they offer you's to keep you out the dock,
Career opportunities,
The ones that never knock.

Careers...
Careers...
Careers
And they're never gonna knock.
