The 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 are the ones that never knocked
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, 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 and I won't open letter bombs for you
Career opportunities are the ones that never knocked
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the ones that never knock

Bus driver, ambulance man, ticket inspector (I call it ‘Nam)
They're gonna have to introduce conscription
They're gonna have to take away my prescription
If they wanna get me making toys
And if they wanna get me, well, I got no choice
Career opportunities are the ones that never knocked
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the ones that never knock
Careers, careers, careers, and they never gonna knock
