Leisure Lyrics

Leisure

They taught me how to work, but they can't teach me how to shirk correctly
Whoah

As you see, science once again robs us of our jobs
They've put a microchip in my place
I hide behind a screen of aggression nowadays
It's just a way of saving some face
So now I'm permanently drunk like the rest of the race with
Leisure
If you think I'm clowning, I assure you that I'm drowning here in
Leisure
They taught me how to work, but they can't teach me how to shirk correctly
Whoah

I spend all day and all my allowance on T.V. games
Amusement Heaven at the flick of a switch
Instead of a lathe, I busy my fingers nowadays
By scoring goals with the gentlest twitch
I've forgotten how to use my legs to invade the pitch
Leisure
If you think I'm clowning, I assure you that I'm drowning here in
Leisure
They taught me how to work, but they can't teach me how to shirk correctly
Whoah

They had retired me 'fore I left school
(Just saw no point in the standing in line)
So I spend lots of time lounging at home
(Why not come in 'cause the carpet is fine?)
What a waste of breath it is
Searching for the jobs that don't exist

So now I'm permanently drunk like the rest of the race with
Leisure
If you think I'm clowning, I assure you that I'm drowning here in
Lei
They taught me how to work, but they can't teach me how to shirk correctly
Whoah
Whoah
La-la-la-leisure
La-la-la-leisure
Lazybones, looking through the Sun
How'd you ever expect to find your day's work?
Lazybones, looking through the Sun
How'd you ever expect to find your day's work?
