Career Opportunities Lyrics

Artist: The Clash
Album: Clash


The offered me the office, offered me the
They said I'd better take anything they'd got
Do you wanna make tea at the BBC?
Do you wanna be, do you really wanna be a cop?

Career opportunities are the ones that never knock
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the ones that never knock

I hate the army an' I hate the R.A.F.
I don't wanna go fighting in the tropical heat
I hate the civil service rules
And I won't open letter bombs for you

Bus driver....ambulance man....ticket inspector

They're gonna have to introduce conscription
They're gonna have to take away my prescription
If they wanna get me making toys
If they wanna get me, well, I got no choice


Ain't never gonna knock

These lyrics are not completely correct.

First line:

"They offered me the office of the meter shop"

Middle line of refrain:

"Every job they offer is to kick you off the dock"

Penultimate line:

"If they want to get me makin' noise"

The lyrics are on the album liner.
