"Model Worker [Peel Session]" as written by and David/devoto Tomlinson....
I'm sick of working on the land
I want to work with machines and look handsome

I have been indulging
In ostentatious display
Doing little more than eat
Three square meals a day

And I've been shirking my duty
So I've been sending gifts to curry favour

But because I love you
And because you love me
A model worker
I'll willingly be

I need a holiday, I've not been well
Take me to the Brocade River Hotel

And I just want to know
While the revolution lasts
Will it enable me
To swallow broken glass!

I'm not too worried by hegemony
I know the cadre will look after me

And I just want to know while the revolution lasts
Will it enable me to swallow broken glass!

I have been indulging in ostentatious display
Doing little more than eat three square meals a day

But because I love you...
