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!
