A Nurse's Life Is Full of Woe
by Billy Bragg

To live forever in your stupid dream
and face the ignominy that old age brings.
Looking up in your heart, but I think you know
that a nurse's life is full of woe.
But Jimmy Quail in another town
They shift it up and they push you around.
If you find it's hard, you should think you so
that a nurse's life is full of woe.
She was in this fetid lie.
This is not the way that I would choose to die.
I wish you were ever in my heart
and I miss you in heaven to this day.
And I wonder how you find it out.
And you're looking up and you'll lock me out,
'cause you know in your heart if you want to go
that a nurse's life is full of woe.
To live forever in your stupid dream
and face the ignominy that old age brings.
Looking up in your heart, and you're ever so
that a nurse's life is full of woe.
Do you believe any children survive?
I wonder if you wanna stay alive
and I wonder if you feel this gift.
If you have to work a thirty-six hour shift.
But I wonder now when you'll understand
when the woman in white comes to take your hand.
And you put in your heart, and I think you know
that a nurse's life is full of woe.
That a nurse's life is full of woe.
