Cat Stevens - Matthew and son
Tekst en muziek: Cat Stevens
(1966)






Up at eight, you can’t be late
For Matthew & Son, he won’t wait
Watch them run down to platform one
And the eight-thirty train to Matthew & Son



Matthew & Son, the work’s never done, there’s always something new
The files in your head, you take them to bed, you’re never ever through
And they’ve been working all day, all day, all day



There’s a five minute break and that’s all you take
For a cup of cold coffee and a piece of cake



Matthew & Son, the work’s never done, there’s always something new
The files in your head, you take them to bed, you’re never ever through
And they’ve been working all day, all day, all day



He’s got people who’ve been working for fifty years
No one asks for more money ’cause nobody cares
Even though they’re pretty low and their rent’s in arrears



Matthew & Son, Matthew & Son
Matthew & Son, Matthew & Son
And they’ve been working all day, all day, all day



Matthew & Son, Matthew & Son
Matthew & Son, Matthew & Son
