My English it is more better now, But my hat is still too flat Fair Arcturus fashion forecast: Skirts will be shorter, Legs stay long Virtual raincoats are coming back, Hats as always continued flat D.C. (Solo on Intro Vamp, then Verse 3) Verse 3: Back at home the machines work hard, We folk like to take it easy Honing our awareness of…the finer things of life Here when I go down to my job, I work hard for what seems like a long time I look at my watch: fifteen minutes, It felt like half a day! Soon enough we break for lunch, Me and the boys now I'm one of the bunch But no one wants to sit with me, So tell me what can the matter be? (Double Chorus, then Vamp)
