lap of luxury lyrics – jethro tull

the money won’t last forever
rent man called twice today
i hope some day you’ll find me in the lap of luxury
oh, lap of luxury

searched for a new apartment
but they don’t grow on trees
just want to lay my head in the lap of luxury
oh, living in luxury
lap, lap of luxury, yeah, oh, oh
lap, lap of luxury, yeah, oh, oh

stepped out on a new horizon
felt a new spring in my feet
found a job, it could set me up dangling in the lap of luxury
living in luxury

and the gaffer is a man of substance
drives a jag and takes high tea
lives beyond the industrial wasteland
laughing in the lap of luxury
oh, living in luxury, lap, lap of luxury, yeah, oh, oh
dangling in the lap of luxury, oh, oh

i need money now, to soothe my heart
lap, lap of luxury
lap, lap of luxury, yeah
lap, lap of luxury

buy me a datsun or toyota
get the tax man to agree
all expenses i can muster from the lap of luxury
oh, living in the lap of luxury, in the lap of luxury

buy me a datsun or toyota
i need money now, to soothe my heart
