Levellers: Captains' Courageous

CAPTAINS' COURAGEOUS
/Levellers/

Kick the sheets off
Get out of bed
Good morning
De ja vu
Is this the best thing
In my head
Good morning
Now what to do

Look at my day
What's the first appointment
Lunch in heaven
What a disappointment

[Chorus:]
I could run away
With Captains' Courageous
I could live on fruit
In Montego Bay
I could run a bar
In a war torn front line
I could do it all
But just not today

Good morning T.V.
Now what's been said
Around the world
While I'm in bed
Oh, nothing's changed
'Cos we're still being fed
On white lies
And stale white bread

Look at my day
What's my next appointment
Dinner in hell
What a disappointment

[Chorus]

Another social misery
For hours
Every day
I live for them
And they live for me
For hours and hours
Every day

[Chorus]

I could free my mind
Become a rich man's guru
I could take the time
Just to feed the world
I could drink all day
Until I find
All the answers
I could do it all
But just not today
