Hey downstairs you'll have had your tea Hey downstairs, now, come along with me Now, move on please, there's nothing here to see And hey, you, keep the bloody noise down Now then, we've all had our fun Now then, yes, god bless us every one It's all going quietly, incidentally rightly But Hi-Ho! when we give the say so History will be ours We sail across the rise and fall of worldly powers And when we come to find in all the lonely hours We've left somebody else a mess Because we could not care less History, it will be ours And when we come to write it down in ivory towers Of how we walked between the raindrops, between the showers Hey, wouldn't you like to know how? Oooheehoooh living up the lazy life, Oooheehoooh living up the lazy life, We're not clearly half the things we nearly say Oh, but we didn't say so We don't care what people say, Unimportant, must be on our way If no-one likes us, isn't that a shame But Hoi Polloi, wouldn't you like to join us? History will be ours We sail across the rise and fall of worldly powers And when we come to find in all the lonely hours We've left somebody else a mess Because we could not care less History, it will be ours And when we come to write it down in ivory towers Of how we walked between the raindrops, between the showers Hey, wouldn't you like to know how? Oooheehoooh living up the lazy life, Oooheehoooh living up the lazy life, Oooheehoooh living up the lazy life, One more push and... History will be ours We sail across the rise and fall of worldly powers And when we come to find in all the lonely hours We've left somebody else a mess Because we could not care less History, it will be ours And when we come to write it down in ivory towers Of how we walked between the raindrops, between the showers Hey, wouldn't you like to know how? Hey ho, wouldn't you say so Hey, ho, what do you know So hey, ho, don't you want to go? Living up the lazy life? Ooheehoooh living up the lazy life

It’s a long, hard road and it’s further than you know Bleed until the Earth runs dry It’s a cruel hard load and we curse it as we go Bleed until the Earth runs dry Bleed until the Earth runs dry All bleed until the Earth runs dry We’re catching all catch can And scratchin’ for the man Bleed until the Earth runs dry Born to work and die, leave the weary world behind Bleed until the Earth runs dry No we can’t say why but we never, never mind Bleed until the Earth runs dry Bleed until the Earth runs dry All bleed until the Earth runs dry We’re catching all catch can And scratchin’ for the man Bleed until the Earth runs dry So we mump and moan, how we grump and how we groan Bleed until the Earth runs dry Through the tax and the toil, through the cracks into the spoil Bleed until the Earth runs dry Bleed until the Earth runs dry All bleed until the Earth runs dry Catching all catch can And a scratchin’ for the man Bleed until the Earth runs dry Come to heel, workaday, throw me in the out tray Bleed until the Earth runs dry Up a hill all the way and that’s on a good day Bleed until the Earth runs dry Bleed until the Earth runs dry All bleed until the Earth runs dry We’re catching all catch can And a scratchin’ for the man Bleed until the Earth runs dry
