[Lyrics: Martin Walkyier]

Look what you get for following leaders,
from the rear - where are they now ?
What did we learn in history lessons ?
How to sit quiet at the back of a class.
many things open to question,
it's too late to cry - there's no-one to ask.
Life's an education - a multiple
everybody finds their own solution in the end.
"To be or not to be" is a very lengthy question,
has somebody please got
a sharpened pencil they can lend ?
Marching in time down a production line,
what did that teach you 'bout life in the dole-queue
The Law of Relativity - (life's relative misery)
The Law of Probability - (it's probably contrived)
Newton's Law of Gravity
- (we face a grave reality)
The law that rules the jungle - (only the strong survive)
The path of least resistance - a bland
text book existance,
don't expect to find the answers printed at the back.
The only sound advice that's carried me through life
when the cards are stacked against you, play the joker in the pack.
