COUNTING THE DAYS

Is it a Judeo-Christian overhang ?

cos it’s something I can’t understand

so many times I wait in line

for what I like to think is mine

I’m counting the days

A notion comes into my head

we’d be better off when someone’s dead

freezing cold flat damp on the walls

I’m paying Pete but I’m robbing Paul

still I’m counting the days

THE MAD MAN RANTS, TELLS U 2 BUCK UP

CAN’T YOU SEE, IT’S JUST THEIR COCKUP

YOU STICK YOUR FINGERS IN YOUR EARS

IT’S ALL TOO MUCH FOR YOU TO HEAR

7 6 5 4 3 2 1

WAHOO BABY! THE PAIN IS GONE

BY COUNTING THE DAYS

Stale bread today but jam tomorrow

the sweat I pay will let me borrow

& it’s a long long time till the lunch bell rings

and it’s my stomach you hear rumb-ling

cos I’m counting the days

And it is written in the stars

men are from Venus women from Mars

one day I’ll walk into a bar

and she will come and kiss the scars

yes I’m counting the days

AND THE DOCTOR COMES, AND REPEATS IT ALL

EVERYTHING HE TRIED TO TEACH YOU

ALL THE TIMES HE TRIED TO REACH YOU

YOU TELL HIM HE CAN GO AWAY

YOU’RE NOT THE ONE WHO’S SICK TODAY

7 6 5 4 3 2 1

WAHOO BABY! THE PAIN IS GONE

BY COUNTING THE DAYS

And when I look into your face

I know you understand

And when I look into your face

I know that you know

Then the boy-girl bounces into view, she says

(there’s) so many things I’m gonna do

the lovestruck Kraut is her enthuser

she makes me feel like such a loser

just counting the days

AND YOU SHIFT YOUR EYES

AND YOU TURN YOUR HEAD

COS YOU WALKED ON BY THE RAGGED BED

AND SHE SAYS:

YOU DON’T HAVE TO DREAM OF HEAVEN

YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIVE LIKE THIS

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

COME ON BABY, TAKE THE TRIP

& STOP

COUNTING THE DAYS

FARMERS

Show me the field

and I’ll show you the crop

I’ll show you the farmer

who sits on top

Show me the need

and I’ll show you the one

who reaps the harvest

from everyone

(all day long)

SHOW ME THE PAIN, AND

I’LL SHOW YOU THE GAIN

SHOW ME THE GRAVY, AND

I’LL SHOW YOU THE TRAIN

SHOW ME THE NAVY

WHO DID NOT SET SAIL IN VAIN

Show me the greed

and we are the ones

who must run and heed

when the bell is rung

If the yield is high

we can feast for a while

if times are thin, we

still have to grin – and bear it

SHOW ME THE PAIN…

Show me the church

and I’ll show you the steeple

that was built with the sweat

and the hope of the people

And I’ll show you

what they’re after

and it might just be okay

yes I’ll show you

what they’re after

and it could have been okay

Show me the leader

and I’ll show you the plan

I’ll show you the extra

ordinary man

Show me the tree

and I’ll show you the fruit

I’ll show you the Madonna

in her birthday suit

(she’s so cute)

SHOW ME THE PAIN, AND

I’LL SHOW YOU THE GAIN

SHOW ME THE GRAVY, AND

I’LL SHOW YOU THE TRAIN

SHOW ME THE NAVY

WHO DID NOT SET SAIL IN VAIN

FARMERS
