He gets up early at about seven o'clock
The alarm goes off and then the house starts to rock
In and out of the bathroom by seven-o-three
By seven-ten he's downstairs drinking his tea

So put a shine on your shoes
Put on your pin-striped suit
Can't lose those early-morning-can't-stop-yawning
Push and shoving his rush hour blues

Darling are you ready you'll be late for the bus
Don't rush me baby while I'm using my brush
Get a move on darling you're cutting it fine
Cool it baby I've got plenty of time

So put a shine on your shoes
Put on your pin-striped suit yeah
Can't lose those early-morning-can't-stop-yawning
Push and shoving his rush hour blues

Soon I'll be just one of the commuters waiting for the subway train
I'll be rushing up the stairs and in the elevator
By the time that I get there and about
I'm gonna feel like a mole in the ground

I'll be caught in the crush, I'll be pushed and be shoved
And I'll be trying to get the subway train
I'll be fighting with my brief case and my umbrella
Every morning and every night, some people do it every day of their lives

Oh yeah
Oh I've got the rush hour blues
Every day and every night
Some people do it every day of their lives

Read the paper later you'll be caught in the queues
Don't rush me baby while I'm reading the news
Darling get a move on you're cutting it fine
Cool it baby I've got plenty of time

In the rush hour queues no one gives a damn
No one knows where I'm going to, no one knows who I am
I'm sitting in my office, in the metropolis
I'm just part of the scenery, I'm just part of the machinery

Chained to my desk on the 22nd floor
I can't break out through the automatic door
I'd jump out the window but I can't face the drop
I'm sitting in a cage with an eye on the clock

And I'm ready to start paying my dues
I've got to lose those early-morning
Can't stop yawning
Push and shoving the rush hour blues

And I'm ready to start paying my dues
I've got to lose those early-morning
Can't stop yawning
Push and shoving the rush hour blues
