~Nothing Alas Alack~

nothing to do but work work work
nothing alas alack
nowhere to go but out out out
nowhere to come but back

it's christmas day in the workhouse
they're handing out lollipops
progress would be wonderful
if only it would stop

no bees no honey no work no money

nothing to do but think think think
nothing alas alack
nowhere to go for a drink drink drink
nowhere to come but back

it's christmas day in the doghouse
lassie's gone barking mad
here comes father christmas
handing out lucky bags

no bees no honey no work no money
nothing to do but work work work

money

Haze, UK. hairdresser NZ. hairdresser.
Steve, UK. aircraft engineer repairing planes for the likes of Michael Schumacher, King of Saudi, Sultan of Bruneii, et al
NZ. making aluminium doors and windows, but permanently excited about the idea of something popping up. A bit like that squirrelly thing in "Ice Age" that's always chasing his nuts.
