Tell me why must this man dun get so tired?
Tell me why must this man dun get so tired?
Been up three nights straight, and he's totally wired
Tell me why must this man dun get so tired?

See him! See him! Why don't you see him
See him! See him! Why don't you see him

Tell me why does this man dun get so weary?
His face is pale and his eyes they are bleary
Close them, and his dreams are strange and eerie
Tell me why does this man dun get so weary?

See him! See him! Why don't you see him
See him! See him! Why don't you see him

See him! - He's a real achiever
See him! - He's a true believer
In hard work and freedom
And the "me" generation
A.M. Rock and privatisation

See him! See him! Why don't you see him
See him! See him! Why don't you see him

See him! - He's a real achiever
See him! - He's a true believer
In hard work and freedom
And the "me" generation
A.M. Rock and privatisation

Tell me why does this man dun get so weary?
Tell me why does this man dun get so weary?
Why does this man dun get so weary?
He's a sucker for punishment
That's my theory

See him! See him! Why don't you see him
See him! See him! Why don't you see him

Song Description

Just look at him there, the typical successful person of today. He works through the night, is overtired and completely wound up. He’s got glassy eyes and when he closes them he has nightmares. He believes that hard work will help you achieve your goal and is all for the privatisation of state companies, like Margaret Thatcher did. He never has enough of work.

Sucker for punishment: Phrase used in boxing. This man dun (done) get so tired etc.: From Afro-American slang, used often in blues songs. AM rock music: Unchallenging rock music without edges or corners, as played by American middlewave radio stations around the clock.
