The Man in the Corner Shop

Been listening to the Jam quite a lot these days. In last month’s music notes, I recommended Sound Affects. This song is from this album. 

Puts up the closed sign does the man in the corner shop
Serves his last and says goodbye to him
He knows it is a hard life
But it’s nice to be your own boss really
Walks off home does the last customer
He is jealous of the man in the corner shop
He is sick of working at the factory
Says it must be nice to be your own boss (really)
Sells cigars to the boss from the factory
He is jealous is the man in the corner shop
He is sick of struggling so hard
He says “It must be nice to own a factory”
Go to church do the people from the area
All shapes and classes sit and pray together
For here they are all one
For God created all men equal
