Hard work is the name of the game
Work till you sweat and your brows wrinkle
Till your hair turns grey and you turn pale
And keep doing it till your find your place in a box
Nothing comes easy or so they say
It's the way of the world you follow the rules
Don't bend it or break it or we'll cut off your bonus
Keep doing work till the day you're burned!
Come early in the morning, stay up as late as you can
You've traded your life for money, your time is ours
Don't smoke too much, we need you alive
And eat as fast as you can, for time is money!
it's the survival of the fittest, you either fit in or don't
We know the signs very well, we can kick you out
And out there is a hard world, where you'll beg and steal
You'll lose all your comforts, that you enjoy right now
It's do or die, the battle of the market
We are the drivers of the economy, we make lives better
There isn't a life better outside, your box is the best
Don't ever peep out, or you'll find your place there!
