The Bureaucratic Blues

You can't come in this way please use the other door
No you can't come in this way please use the other door
If this entrance ain’t for me, just who is it for?

You’ll have to take a number, stand on the right and form a line
You’ll have to take a number, stand on the right and form a line
When you’re the only one who’s waiting just how do you form a line?

I got the bureaucratic blues. I pay my mind and I loose
I got the bureaucratic blues. I pay my mind and I loose
What might be right for you, ain't for you to choose

If you're red, go ahead. If you're blue you know what to do
I said if you're red go ahead. If you're blue you know what to do
You can forget it purple people. The rules say you'll be screwed

‘Cause if you slide in the slot then you win. If you don't then you lose
If you slide in the slot then you win. If you don't then you lose
You can keep your cookie cutter. I'm another with the bureaucratic blues

I got the bureaucratic blues…
