Afternoon Matinee: Protest - Career Opportunities

Performed by The Clash





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

Career opportunities are the ones that never knock
Every job they offer you is to keep out the dock
Career opportunities, the ones that never knock

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

Career opportunities
Career opportunities
Career opportunities are the ones that never knock

Bus driver
And the ambulance man
And the ticket inspector
Don't understand

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, I got not choice

Career opportunities are the ones that never knock
Every job they offer you is to keep out the dock
Career opportunities, the ones that never knock

Careers
Careers
Careers
Ain't a-never gonna knock
