lyrics

There is work to be done. There are plans to be making. There is work to be done, hands to be shaking. I am just a man I will be replaced by a machine they tell me. I was not meant to hear the songs that they will sing about me. I was not meant to live that long. There is work to be done. Trains to be taking. There is work to be done. Claims to be staking. I am just a man I will be replaced by a machine they tell me. I was not meant to hear the songs that they will sing about me. I was not meant to live that long. Breaking rocks in the sun. No idle hands in the kitchen. We have only begun. We are under revision. I am just a man I will be replaced by a machine they tell me. I was not meant to hear the songs that they will sing about me. I was not meant to live that long.
