Verse 1
The offered me the office, offered me the shop
They said I'd better take anything they'd got
Do you want to make tea at the BBC?
Do you want to be, do you really want to be a cop?
Verse 2
Career opportunities are the ones that never knock
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the ones that never knock

I don't want to go fighting in the tropical heat
I hate the civil service rules
And I won't open letter bombs for you

Ambulance man
Ticket inspector

They're gonna have to introduce conscription
They're gonna have to take away my prescription
If they want to get me making toys
If they want to get me, well, I got no choice

Ain't never gonna knock
