Don't get settled in this place,

The Lodger's terms are in disgrace.

No peace for the wicked - only war on the poor

They're batting on pickets - trying to even the score

It's all inclusive - and the dirt comes free

And you can be all that you want to be

                 mmm, yeah.

Oh an equal chance and an equal pay
But equally there's no equal pay
There's room on top - if you tow the line
And if you believe all this you must be out of your mind

There's only room for those the same
Those who play the leeches game
Don't get settled in this place
The lodger's terms are in disgrace

Getcha brains blown out - in a captain's mess
Stand for the Queen if you can stand the test
It's all thrown in and the lies come free
And you can be all that they want you to be

There's only room for those the same
Those who play the leeches game
Don't get settled in this place
The lodger's terms are in disgrace

Oh if you work hard you can be the boss
But if you don't work at all then that's nobody's loss
There's room on top - if you dig in low
And the idea is what they reap you sow

With an old school tie and a reference
You can cover up crimes in their defence
It's all thrown in and the lies come free
And you can be all that they want you to be

There's only room for those the same
Those who play the leeches game
Don't get settled in this place
The Lodger's terms are in disgrace.

(repeat chorus to fade w/vocal ad lib)
