The Lyrics

A tribute to my much-loathed summer job in a supermarket
The shelf-stacking's not easy
People shopping
And my wages aren't high

I'm only here
"Cause I've finished at uni
Here till the autumn
I think I'll cry

Hot sunny morning
And I'm stuck in the warehouse
Lifting big boxes
They're all stacked up too high

But till the evening
There's no getting away yet
With the supervisors walking by

The shelf-stacking's not easy
Money in tills
But my wages aren't high

And I'm still not rich
And this overall's ugly
I'm stuck here till autumn
Well, wouldn't you cry?
