What We Want

I thought the pay
Was quite OK
When I first came through the door
Then I paid my rent
And it was spent
And now I want some more

They've got no more to give
But like Olly Twist
More than subsist
I want enough to live

It's the soothing and comfort that passengers feel
From the safety of knowing the doors only close
When the guard says it's ready, that's when the train goes

Tell Me Jeremy

Tell me Jeremy, with lives at stake
Aren't doctors safer when they're awake?
Would you have surgery from a doc
Who's been on duty round the clock?

Tell me Jeremy, tell me why
You seem to think that you can buy
Our doctors' lives, and their assent
For pieces of silver, a few per cent?
