Back to Get Back in Line lyrics

Get Back In The Line (The Kinks Christmas Concert, 1977)

Facing the world ain't easy
When there isn't anything going
Standing at the corner waiting
Watching time go by

Will I go to work today
Or shall I bide my time

'Cause when I see that union man
Walking down the street
He's the man who decides
If I live or I die, if I starve or I eat

Then he walks up to me
And the sun begins to shine
Then he walks right past and I know
That I've got to get back in the line

Now I think of what my mama told me
She always said that it would never ever work out
But all I want to do is make some money
And bring you home some wine

But I don't ever want you to see me
Standing in that line

'Cause that union man's
Got such a hold over me
He's the man who decides
If I live or I die, if I starve or I eat

Then he walks up to me
And the sun begins to shine
Then he walks right past and I know
That I've got to get back in the line

Get back, get back
Get right back in the line
