been working way too long
and the checks aren't getting any bigger
and we're singing happy songs
to keep from feeling down
the price is going up
where does all that extra cash flow?
a ten cent dinner in a cup
means you're cold and hungry in a half an hour

'cause we're running out of sun, and pretty soon
the days will be as dark as ever
and once that winter comes
it won't be getting any better
those longer nights, well they make me hate to wake up early
those longer night mean more time to
let our bedrooms get a little dirty

no, we don't need the sun
we've got electric lights now
and we have ways
of staying warm once all the fires have burned out

and we're running out of wood, and when it's gone we
won't have heat to warm our feet with
so get an extra pair of socks
that's just one more thing i'll have to take off
well, we could all move south
i heard they have much warmer weather
but i'd rather nor be sweating all the time
so i'll just wear an extra sweater

no, we don't need the sun
we've got electric lights now
and we have ways
of staying warm once all the fires have burned out
