​But I Might Die Tonight

This song is by Cat Stevens and appears on the album Tea for the Tillerman (1970).

Ah...
Don't want to work away
Doin' just what they all say.
Work hard, boy, and
You'll find
One day you'll have a job like mine.

'Cause I know for sure
Nobody should be that poor.
You say yes and
Sink low
Because you happen to say so, say so.
You say so.

I don't want to work away
Doin' just what they all say.
Work hard, boy, and
You'll find
One day you'll have a job like mine, job like mine.
A job like mine.

Be wise. Look ahead.
Use your eyes, he said.
Be straight. Think right,
But I might die tonight.
Ah...
Ah...
