You Never Miss?
And You’ll Be Like Clementine
A Social Conscience?
Better Late Than Never?
One Out,One In
Out Of Your Shade
You Are There
Daddy’s Girl Has Fallen Down
Aap Jaisa Koi
I’d Forgotten Just How Beautiful You Are

CommentaryAnother piece of 1980s British social commentary.
This duet contrasts the circumstances and motives
of 2 people on a socialist March for Jobs.
Blob described the end bit as sounding like a very mechanical office environment.
We march for jobs, the right to work.
to earn the keep of those I love.
Bleak queues we form to sign our names.
Calendars pass. This line's the same line.
Home sweet home where my heart fades
in shade unthreatened by light.
Stuck in shut snap-shot albums
family smiles of the past...
Are they the last of them?
We March for Jobs, the Right to Work
for others' sakes, for my job is safe.
The Government must change its ways
and face the truth staring in our faces.
Meanwhile back at the office
the software is almost complete,
taking tedium out of
mundane manual tasks...
Hours will be saved for us all.
