I work at the post office
every morning I get up at 7.10
a slice and half of toast and butter
I leave for work and I start to dream

On the way to the bus I think about us
then I realize I’m standing in the middle of the road

I work at the post office
thank you sir I’m gonna lick my way to the top
It’s afternoon tea at 3:15
I light a fag and I start to dream

About the sound of the birds at times when I heard
then I realize it was nearly 20 years ago

This pin-striped life keeps spinning ‘round
around in circles with a
square old peg like me
who just don’t fit without you
who must keep dreaming of you

I work at the post office
I catch the bus back to nowhere at 5.38
I work at the post office
I live at the post office

And I start to dream
that I’ll receive your telegram
