everybody’s worryin’ ’bout the fight in the high street
everybody’s worried ’bout the debts that they can’t meet
well you work till you’re wet with sweat
and what do you get? nuthin’ on the t.v.
all i ever hear about is ayatollahs
the headline scream and the newscast hollers
what’s gonna happen next? is anybody guess?
i’m just a rock ‘n’ roller.
they got videos remote controls
you better believe me and watchin’ repeats
does nothin’ but grieve me.
we all know about rising inflation
it sure ain’t no cause for no celebration
and if that ain’t enough, there ain’t no sun
i’ve got to become an overnight sensation, overnight sensation.
