lyrics

Moving on up to the big town
Going down south where the land is dear
You know a place, can’t hardly be found
You gotta have the cash to get anything here

Now you’re coming up the ladder, rung by rung
You stop rock bottom, and head for the sky
It’s dog eat dog if you wanna get along
You move up quick before you’re kicked in the air

Join the rat race
Join the rat race, it’s all in your face
Join the rat race
Join the rat race, you gotta keep with the pace

Take with the left hand, and punch with the right
You swindle the young, and rip off the old
As you polish your halo, you seem real nice
You’re a shark in a suit, swimming round a goldfish bowl

Rat race, rat race
Rat race, rat race

Now you’ve made it to the top and you’ve got your flash car
You’ve got enough plastic for a LEGO world
You’re so alone, in your suburban flat
You’ve got all you want, now what was it for?

Join the rat race
Join the rat race, come on fight for your place
Join the rat race
Join the rat race, it’s not about grace
Join the rat race
Join the rat race, it’s all in your face
Join the rat race, come on fight for your place
Join the rat race, you gotta keep with the pace
Join the rat race, it’s not about grace!
