The Clash Career Opportunities Lyrics

Last updated: 02/11/2014 05:45:23 PM

They offered me the office, offered me the shop
They said I'd better take anything they'd got
Do you wanna make tea at the BBC?
Do you wanna be, do you really wanna be a cop?

Career opportunities the ones that never knocked
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the one that never knocked

I hate the army and I hate the R.A.F.
I don't wanna go a-fighting in the tropical heat
I hate the civil service rules
I won't open letter bombs for you

Career opportunities the ones that never knocked
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity the one that never knocked

Oi!

Bus driver.... ambulance man.... a ticket inspector
(I've done all of them...)

They're gonna have to introduce conscription
They're gonna have to take away my prescription
If they wanna get me making toys
If they wanna get me, well hell, I got no choice

Career opportunities the ones that never knocked
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the one that never knocked

Careers...
Careers...
Careers...

That ain't never gonna knock!

Corrections in lifes | Reviewer: Mehboob hussain | 12/8/12

Every steps of my life that i take , it turns into a big mistake, i think the time is not mine, but i wish one day it will be fine.
Every time of my life i always pray,to become a good person one day.i had to do a lot of things in my life, so i pray to god to make me survive.
Dont know what the time will do with me, as i know i'm not there where i should be . I will be in my right place one day, every single time my heart says.
How much pain i have in my life, nobody in the world can ever realise. After all i decided to take a side, but there was no any choice accept suiside, but i will never attemp suiside, because i am afraid to take that side.
Once a time many peoples were there with me, now with the face of friend they all had become my enemy.I am lonely in the world with my pain, when the happiness will knock my door again.
