I got you a job in the city now
But what you want isn't what you found,
Such a frown

We're taking the bus and you're going downtown
Bet you tried to burn this opportunity down,
To the ground

So sorry, so sad
You've got it, so bad
Your friends are, in the band,
Still playing

I got you a job in the city now
Slaving all day for your pennies now,
Should be proud


When I was young the sweat fell off of my brow
Got me a car and I bought me a house
When I was younger, I had it all figured out
And that you're older, there should never be a doubt

I want you to notice
I want you to notice
I want you to know just what I've done for you x2

So sorry, so sad
You've got it, so bad
Your friends are, in the band,
Still playing

I got you a job in the city now
It's time to come down from the top of that cloud,
Come on down

You're punching the clock for twenty odd years now
Above and beyond, but still on the ground
Take a bow

You got it, you're in
You're selling, your skin
Goodbye to, the boys
Put away, the toys
