    Lyrics

    Paper, iron, won't buy Eden
    working for paper and for iron
    work for the right to keep my tie on
    working for paper and for iron
    work for the unicorn and lion

    I pray the kids aren't starving
    no chicken for the Sunday carving
    I'll stay for one more farthing

    I take home my notes and coins every week
    I'm told I'm worth much more
    but the Church says turn the other cheek
    the other cheek
    paper, iron, won't buy Eden.

    I know the family needs me
    can't moan, the factory feeds me
    won't bite the hand that bleeds me

    I take home my notes and coins every week
    I'll inherit the earth I'm told
    but the Church says to remain this meek
    remain this meek
    I'm still a proud man.
    Won't show anybody else my wage
    a blend in the crowd man
    is this anybody's golden age
    is this anybody's golden age
    is this anybody's golden age
    or am I dreaming of a golden cage

    La la lo it's paper
    la la lo it's iron
    la la lo just paper
    la la lo just iron
