Working for the government
Has now corrupted me right through

I can tell by that love in your eye
You won't think I am quite a nice guy
I am sorry that I disillusioned you
Working for the government
Has now corrupted me right through

You need no political persuasion
To tell you that you still have tax evasion
I learned from the inside; I'm all up on you
Working for the government
Has now corrupted me right through

I was once a pure young lad
What is it that's made me bad

In my youth I learnt cards, swearing, drink (civil servile)
And girls were more deadly than I think (civil servant)
But lunch breaks without them really wouldn't do
Working for the government
Has now corrupted me right through

I was once a pure young lad
What is it that's made me bad

Please don't think I'm trying to talk you round (civil servile)
Cross my palm and I'll not make a sound (civil servile)
It's okay as long as they do not catch you
Working for the government
Has now corrupted me right through yeah
Working for the government
Has now corrupted me right through
