Chumbawamba - Poverty knock

Tekst piosenki:

   \'Poverty poverty knock,\' my loom is a saying all day
   Poverty poverty knock, gaffer\'s too skinny to pay
   Poverty poverty knock, keeping one eye on the clock
   I know I can guttle when I hear my shuttle go, \'poverty poverty knock\'
   Up every morning at five, I wonder that we keep alive
   Tired and yawning in the cold morning
   It\'s back to the dreary old drive.
   (Repeat chorus)
   Oh dear we\'re going to be late
   Gaffer is stood at the gate
   We\'re out of pockets, our wages they\'ll dock it
   We\'ll have to buy grub on the slate
   (Repeat chorus)
   And when our wages they\'ll bring, we\'re often short of a string
   While we are fighting with gaffer for snatching (?)
   We know to his breast he will cling
   (Repeat chorus)
   Sometimes a shuttle flies out
   and gives some poor woman a clout
   There she lies bleeding but nobody\'s heeding
   Oh who\'s going to carry her out?
   (Repeat chorus)
   Oh dear, my poor head it sings
   I should have woven three strings
   My threads are breaking and my back is aching
   Oh dear, I wish I had wings
   Poverty poverty knock
   Poverty poverty knock
   Poverty poverty knock
