Lyrics

Undergrunn' er alltid sen og toget ute av rute
Men jobben må du rekke likevel
Sjefen tror på overtid, hvis ikke er du ute
Men klokka er blitt fem, så det er kveld

Og på toget hjem igjen
Når du sovner, kommer drømmen av seg selv

For livet kaller, hjertet slår
Og kan du høre, Mrs. Thompson?
Og tiden bare går og går
Men hva gjør du, Mrs. Thompson?
Kom igjen

Foreldremøte mandag, og tirsdag foran TV'n
Og onsdag gjør hun yoga for seg selv
Torsdag kommer jentene, på fredag er det huset
Talglys og rødvin lørdag kveld

Hele søndagen i seng
Når hun sover, kommer drømmen om igjen

For livet kaller, hjertet slår
Og kan du høre, Mrs. Thompson?
Og tiden bare går og går
Men hva gjør du, Mrs. Thompson?
Kom igjen

For livet kaller, hjertet slår
Og kan du høre, Mrs. Thompson?
Og tiden bare går og går
Men hva gjør du, Mrs. Thompson?

La meg presentere deg
For alle tiders Mrs. Thompson
En hverdagshelt som viser vei
Trå til og gjør det, Mrs. Thompson
Kom igjen

For livet kaller, hjertet slår
Og kan du høre, Mrs. Thompson?
Og tiden bare går og går
Men hva gjør du, Mrs. Thompson?

La meg presentere deg for alle tiders...

The train is never in on time, the tube is always crazy
To get to work, you’ve half a mile to run
The boss believes in overtime, he thinks you’re bein’ lazy
But nine to five’s enough for anyone

Leavin’ London, goin’ home
Dreamin’ sun and sea and all family

The world is callin’ out for you
Oh, can’t you hear them, Mrs. Thompson?
The world is lookin’ up to you
Oh, you’re a hero, Mrs. Thompson
Yes, you are

Monday is her German night, Tuesday she does yoga
And Wednesday after school’s the P.T.A.
Thursday dine by candelight, Friday she’s hung-over
The weekend shopping’s done on Saturday

Sunday she unwinds at home
Dreaming through the night alone, nine a.m.

The world is callin’ out for you
Oh, can’t you hear them, Mrs. Thompson?
The world is lookin’ up to you
Oh, you’re a hero, Mrs. Thompson
(Yes, you are)

Why are you drunk? Things to do
The one and only Mrs. Thompson
The world is watchin’ all you do
Oh, this is your time, Mrs. Thompson
Here we go

The world is callin’ out for you
Oh, can’t you hear them, Mrs. Thompson?
The world is lookin’ up to you
Oh, you’re a hero, Mrs. Thompson
(Yes, you are)

A lonely spot inside of you
You’re in the spotlight, Mrs. Thompson
The world is watchin’ all you do
Oh, this is your time, Mrs. Thompson
Here we go

The world is callin’ out for you
Oh, can’t you hear them, Mrs. Thompson?
The world is lookin’ up to you
Oh, you’re a hero, Mrs. Thompson
(Yes, you are)[1]
