lyrics

lean times are on their way
gonna be a lot more work
at lot less play
gonna be here now any day
lean times are on their way

when men like me aren't hard to find
who've never done a days work in our lives
we're gonna be the last ones of our kind
ain't going to make it through no lean times

maybe you've got a lot of things to say
you've been around the world on holiday
your mother lived till she was old and grey
but lean times are on their way

lean times are on their way
maybe tomorrow if not today
nothing that's here is ever here to stay
lean times are on their way

and if you made it through then what you did was right
who's there to argue with the winners of the fight
but stick around, Punchy, and you might find
that you ain't seen the last of lean times

maybe we will all fly off some day
climb in our ships and sail away, hey-hey
and try our luck on airless rocks in space
but from yourself I fear there's no escape

lean times are on their way
take two steps towards it and one away
as long as you're living you're never safe
lean times are on their way

man keeps on trying to survive
keeps living all the time that he can stay alive
the time that he can't stay alive is the time he dies
but if he ain't died he's going to keep on trying

and if I have a child someday I'm going to say
you'd best not make mistakes that I have made
but the advice has always been the same
and goddamn kids don't ever change

lean times are on their way
take two steps forwards and you're one step away
nothing that's here is ever here to stay, but
lean times are on their way
