Blacklisted Blues

Ev'ry Mornin'
I look out the window
The Sheffield steely sky
Is full of drizzle
I hear the postman
Bring in the mail
It says
Regrests to say
That you have failed

Well I just... got no job
I just got those
Blacklisted blues

I got my education
I got degrees galore
But my reputation
Keeps my family poor
Faceless men
With their computer files
Keep watching over
Society's exiles

I got no... got no job
I just got those
Blacklisted blues

Economic league
M.I.5 too
Keeping the subversives
Hidden from view
Keep your nose clean
And don't have no point of view
It's a conspiracy
'Gainst me and you

Well I just... got no job
I just got those Blacklisted blues

A thousand applications
A hundred interviews
But every letter
Still brings bad news
Still, when you've got no job
You got no job to lose
So I'll kepp my freedom
And f*** those blacklisted blues

That's why I've got no job
That's why I've got those
Blacklisted blues
Blacklisted blu-ues
