All The Machines Are Quiet (Calvert Robert)

We're walking out We're downing our tools. This management They take us for fools. All we're asking is A living wage A living wage A living wage And now There's nothing I can do I spend my days in dreams And join the endless queue, So far from the machines, All the machines are quiet. I could scream All the machines are quiet. I'll take the kids To Chessington zoo. The big gorilla, He looks just like you. Watch that tiger Pacing in his cage. I feel his rage. I feel his rage. And now There's nothing I can do I spend my days in dreams And join the endless queue, So far from the machines, All the machines are quiet. I could scream All the machines are quiet. The winter's coming We need new shoes. I'm selling the car, I'm paying my dues. The union bosses Tell us five more weeks - five more weeks - Five more weeks And now There's nothing I can do I spend my days in dreams And join the endless queue, So far from the machines, All the machines are quiet. I could scream All the machines are quiet.
