All I see are shining pearls, And that's alright with me, Know my place in a plastic world, Who I'm supposed to be, I wear my suit from 8 till 5, Take my job seriously, I get drunk every Friday night
Well that's alright with me

It starts with just one, then two people, To let the wheel come free, So wake up stop turning your head away

I get truths from my local papers, Well that's alright with me, Large chain stores take my visa
And their handling fee, I've been stood up and shot down and now I sit, As Part of the scenery
So undone so commercial exposed, But that's alright with me

Loose My days to the chores, Well that's alright with me, Traffic ques and boredom that I feel
It's only temporary, Still I'm day dreaming still the feeling of the sunshine and ease, Surrounded by blue seas, But woke up to bus stops and bills, Surrounded by concrete

I hear your calm sensitive tone, You're disappointed with me, You said yes when really meant no
And put it so selflessly, Oh what no, there's no pleasing u now you see, Well maybe you'll disagree
Throw some things and repeat the same old, Guess that's alright with me
