    Lyrics
    The silicon chip inside her head
    Gets switched to overload
    And nobody's gonna go to school today
    She's gonna make them stay at home
    And daddy doesn't understand it

    Lyrics
    There was an awful lot of rocking going on that night,
    Cruising time for the young bright lights,
    Just down past the gasworks, by the meat factory door,
    The five lamp boyswere coming on strong.
    The Saturday night city beat had already started

    Lyrics
    The world owes me a living
    I've waited on this dole queue too long
    I've been standin' in the rain for fifteen minutes
    That's a quarter of an hour too long.
    I'll take all they can give me
