Lyrics
Health and safety – written 2013 [key C]

Chorus
We got health and safety hitting us from everywhere,
You musn’t do this and you musn’t do that,
If you wanna change a light bulb you’d gotta be wearing.
Your steel cap boots and yellow hard hat
Verse 1
if you cross the road you can get knocked down,
if you take a swim you can sink and drown,
if you wanna be safe maybe better if you never get up.
Verse 2
If I take a walk I am still at risk,
If I bend my back I can slip a disc,
And to tell you the truth, I’m too afraid to open the door.
Chorus
We got health and safety hitting us from everywhere,
You musn’t do this and you musn’t do that,
If you wanna change a light bulb you’d better be wearing.
Your steel cap boots and yellow hard hat
Verse 3
This is how you lift a package of air,
That is cardboard light and one foot square,
They’re stating the obvious but everybody’s got to be told.
Verse4
They insist on a day of protective themes,
You may not pour liquid on electric machines,
And they keep repeating it over and over again
Chorus.
Break as [as verse]
Repeat verse 3
Repeat Chorus.

Quality lyrics that brought a smile to my lips and a knowing nod. I had to go and put on my fluro-orange high-vis vest just to listen to the song! I like the arrangement and that "lazy" sax. Thanks, Peter.

Really dig this, man, but you forgot to mention the danger of becoming addicted if you listen to too much cool music on MacJams! (OK, that was kind of cheesy!) Really enjoyed - thanks!

Thoughtful lyrics - we do want to keep people safe, but we can't put them all in bubble wrap. Nice easy feel to the backing and an engaging vocal. Much enjoyed!
