Verse 1
You're working at your leisure to learn the things you'll need
The promises you make tomorrow will carry no guarantee
I've seen your qualifications, you've got a Ph.D.
I've got one art O level, it did nothing for me
Verse 2
Working for the rat race
You know you're wasting your time
Working for the rat race
You're no friend of mine
Verse 3
You plan your conversation to impress the college bar
Just talking about your Mother and Daddy's Jaguar
Wear your political T-shirt and sacred college scarf
Discussing the worlds situation but just for a laugh
Verse 4
You'll be working for the rat race
You know you're wasting your time
Working for the rat race
You're no friend of mine
Verse 5
Working for the rat race
You know you're wasting your time
Working for the rat race
You're no friend of mine
Verse 6
Just working at your leisure to learn the things you don't need
The promises you make tomorrow will carry no guarantee
I've seen your qualifications, you've got a Ph.D.
I've got one art O level, it did nothing for me
Verse 7
Working for the rat race
You know you're wasting your time
You're working for the rat race
You're no friend of mine
