Song Lyrics

[Bono = Normal, Crowd/Others = Italics]

I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more
Say I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more
Well I wake up in the morning
Walk out into the rain
Got a hand full of ideas
That’re driving me insane
It’s a shame that I even scrub the floor
Well, I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more
No more

I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s brother no more
Said I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s brother no more
Well he hands you a nickle
He charges you a dime
You need a credit card
If you want a good time
It’s a shame that I even have to cross the door
I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s brother no more
No more

You see I like it just where I am
Tonight, that’s Dublin city, Ireland
And I’d prefer to get a job in my hometown, mister

Old MacDonald
Had a farm
E I E I O
And on that farm, he had some pigs
E I E I O
Well the pigs over here
The cows come there
The ducks come there
Everyone, everyone, wants a… share
Wants a share

Temperature rising
The fever is high
I can’t see the future
When they’re screwing up the sky

The water is heavy
So is my head
I don’t live in Chernobyl
lnstead I live in Sellafield

Cold Turkey
Has got me on the run
On the run

Hey

[Maggie Thatcher:] Who is to answer the child crying
for help?
[British Newscaster:] The F1-11 is a programmable,
supersonic, nuclear bomber designed
To quickly hit and disarm advanced systems and hit possible
places as a rapid deterrant
[Maggie Thatcher:] Who is to answer the child
crying for help?
[British Newscaster:] The F1-11 is a programmable,
supersonic, nuclear bomber
[Maggie Thatcher:] Who is to answer the child
crying for help?


I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more
Said I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more

[Neil Kinnock:] With people’s jobs and with people’s
services

I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more
[Neil Kinnock:] Can’t play politics with people’s
jobs and with people’s services

Said I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more

Sing it with me

I ain’t gonna work… on Maggie’s farm no more

I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more
Turn that shit up
I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more
I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more
I said I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s farm no more
I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s farm no more
I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s farm no more

…gonna work for Maggie’s farm no more
I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s farm no more
Said I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s farm no more
I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s farm no more
I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s farm no more


I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s farm no more
I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s farm no more

Ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s farm no more
I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s farm no more

Thank you, goodnight

We want more, we want more, we want more
We want more, we want more, we want more
