You never hear the one that hits you, no

Well, you work real hard and you stay in line
Got your nose to the grindstone all the time
Then they say, "I'm sorry and I know it's hard
But there ain't no work, just pick up your cards"

And you never hear the one that hits you no, never did, never will
You never hear the one that hits you no, never did, never will
You never hear the one that hits you no, no, no

So you send applications all over town
And the only replies are to turn you down
Then after months someone's on the phone
And you get to the interview the job's long gone

And you never hear the one that hits you no, never did, never will
You never hear the one that hits you no, never did, never will
You never hear the one that hits you no, no, no

Sneaks up behind you and hits you in the head

So you reach the point where you just don't care
And you've made up your mind to live on fresh air
'Cos it doesn't matter what's been done or said
And you better start living, you're a long time dead

And you never hear the one that hits you no, never did, never will
And you never hear the one that hits you no, never did, never will
And you never hear the one that hits you no, no, no
