Like a suicide job, like a suicide job
Like a suicide job, like a suicide job
Like a suicide job but then don't let on

Like a series of shocks, like a series of shocks
Like a series of shocks, but the contents are known

But now, fish fingers all in a line
The milk bottles stand empty
Stay glued to your T. V. set
