The Wombats – Work Is Easy, Life Is Hard Lyrics

The Wombats Work Is Easy Life Is Hard Lyrics

Burn the island, then burn the boat
Howl into the void again
Another idiot with a brand new phone
Spit shining the halo on the head

Why don’t you chop my tongue out
Then put my insides inside a jar
You shake me up, you shake me down
Work’s easy, but life’s gettin’ hard

Yeah, but that’s not the point
Can I forward you a quote to explain?
I’m gonna need you all to raise your voice
But if it doesn’t sound like mine, please abstain

Why don’t you chop my tongue out
Then put my insides inside a jar
You shake me up, you shake me down
Work’s easy, but life’s gettin’ hard (Life’s gettin’ hard)

You, and you don’t speak for me
You, and you don’t speak for me
You, and you don’t speak for me
You, and you don’t speak for me

You don’t speak for me

You don’t speak for me
You, you
You, you

Why don’t you chop my tongue out
Then put my insides inside a jar
You shake me up, you shake me down
Work’s easy, but life’s gettin’ hard (Life’s gettin’ hard)

You, and you don’t speak for me
You, and you don’t speak for me
You, and you don’t speak for me
You, and you don’t speak for me
