This song is by Dropkick Murphys and appears on the album The Early Years (1998) and on the compilation album The Singles Collection, Volume 1 (2000).

This song is a cover of "Career Opportunities" by ​The Clash.
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? (no fuckin' way)

Career opportunities are the ones that never knock
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the ones that never knock

I hate the army an' I hate the Cambridge Police
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 knock
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the ones that never knock

Oi Oi Oi!
Carney Givens, Arthur McGilvrey, Bobby Linchsky
They're gonna have to introduce conscription
They're gonna have to take away my prescription
If they wanna get me making toys
If they wanna get me, well, I got no choice

Career opportunities are the ones that never knock
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the ones that never knock
Careers, careers, careers...
Ain't never gonna knock
