A Day's Work For The Dayo's Done

This song is by China Crisis and appears on the album What Price Paradise (1986).

Cautionary family man
Attending to business
His best he can
Mrs. Missadventure will say
Check for one million in the post today
And like a dream come true
Only ourselves to please
When I can hold on to
These precious things

We are not rich
We are not poor
We never stand tall
On what we know
And every day
Will mean the same
To those we love
We raise our voice

Irish whisky and a table for two
On troublesome occasion
The best thing to do
Take advantage of myself and my time
I don't give up easily
What is rightly mine

We are not rich
We are not poor
We never stand tall
On what we know

Cautionary family man
Attending to business
His best he can
Mrs. Misadventure will say
Check for one million in the post today

Cautionary family man
Protecting his interests
As best he can
Mrs. Missadventure will say
He will buy his wealthy in the world today (alt.: ain't nobody is wealthy in the world today)
And like a dream come true
Only ourselves to please
When I can hold on to
These precious things

We are not rich
We are not poor
We never stand tall
On what we know
And every day
Will mean the same
To those we love
We raise our voice
