You gotta
Go to school
Follow the rules
Do what people say
And don't make a fool of yourself
Put your brains into all your books
Pass all your exams
Leave school and go to work in a place
Where they know you by your number not your name
Stuck in a rut
And there's no one but yourself to blame

There must be more to life
There must be more than this
There must be more to life
The rules and regulations to command and obey
Rules and regulations to command and obey
Obey, obey away, hey!

You keep your mouth shut tight
Everything'll burn
When the chance comes you fall just like your mum
Said you couldn't get mad if I did
Terrific! Jah loves you!
Here a soldier pins you on your feet
To run to sue? makes you feel surprised
Though he's chained you up
And tied you down so you're housebound

There must be more to life
There must be more than this
There must be more to life
The rules and regulations to command and obey
Rules and regulations to command and obey
Obey, obey away, a hey!

Get a divorce
Use their own nails
You cry and it's off to the nearest club
Now you're left too bored to pray for hope
And nothing matters now
You want a way to use the gun
Refuse to run
And you know you can't escape
You're left on your own
To rot and decay

There must be more to life
There must be more than this
There must be more to life
The rules and regulations to command and obey
Rules and regulations to command and obey
Obey, obey away, a hey!

Rules and regulations to command and obey
Rules and regulations to command and obey
Rules and regulations to command and obey
Rules and regulations to command and obey
Rules
And regulations
To command and obey
Obey!
