They offered me the office, offered me the shop
They said, I'd better take anything they've got
Do you wanna make tea at the BBC?
Do you wanna be, do you really wanna be a cop?

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

I hate the army and I hate the R.A.F.
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 opportunity, the one that never knock
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the one that never knock

Oi! Oi! Oi!...
Taxi driver!
Ambulance man!
A ticket inspector!
I don't understand

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

Career!
Career!
Career!
It ain't never gonna knock
