  • I'm so sick, sick, sick and tired
    Of working just to be retired
    I don't want to get that far
    I don't want your company car
    Promotions ain't my thing
    Name badges are not interesting
    It's much easier for me see
    To stay at home with Richard and Judy

    Awayaway oh oh oh away from here...

    Awayaway oh oh oh away from here

    Awayaway oh oh oh away from here

    Awayaway oh oh oh away from here


    I'm fed up of early mornings
    Wake up calls are getting boring round here
    Feet dragging on the pavement
    The same people with the same arrangement
    Irony can be quite funny
    You making other people money
    My working day has just begun
    Its not exactly what I would call fun

    I want to wake up in the afternoon
    With daytime TV and my favourite tune
    'Cause it is much easier for me see
    To stay at home with Richard and Judy

    Awayaway oh oh oh away from here.....

    Away away away away from

    Saturday is your only highlight
    When you go out and live the highlife
    Meeting up with other people
    Your interaction with the weak and feable
    Atleast when all is said and done
    You wouldn't be the only one
    To be a slave to the modern wage
    Your crappy weekend is your only escape

    I want to wake up in the afternoon
    With daytime TV and my favourite tune
    'Cause it is much easier for me
    To stay at home with Richard and Judy

    Awayaway oh oh oh away from here.....
    Away away away away from here
