Get 'em out by Friday
You don't get paid 'til the last one's well on his way
Get 'em out by Friday
It's important that we keep to schedule, there must be no delay 

I represent a firm of gentlemen who recently purchased this 
House and all the others in the road
In the interest of humanity we've found a better place for you 
To go, go-woh, go-woh

Oh no, this I can't believe
Oh Mary, they're asking us to leave

Get 'em out by Friday
I've told you before, 's good many gone if we let them stay
And if it isn't easy
You can squeeze a little grease and our troubles will soon run away

After all this time, they ask us to leave
And I told them we could pay double the rent
I don't know why it seemed so funny
Seeing as how they'd take more money
The Winkler called again, he came here this morning
With four hundred pounds and a photograph of the place he has found
A block of flats with central heating 
I think we're going to find it hard 

Now we've got them
I've always said that cash cash cash can do anything well 
Work can be rewarding 
When a flash of intuition is a gift that helps you excel-sell-sell-sell

Here we are in Harlow New Town 
Did you recognize your block across the square, over there 
Sadly since last time we spoke
We've found we've had to raise the rent again
Just a bit

Oh no, this I can't believe 
Oh Mary, and we agreed to leave

This is an announcement from Genetic Control
It is my sad duty to inform you of a four foot restriction on 
Humanoid height 

I hear the directors of Genetic Control have been buying all the 
Properties that have recently been sold, taking risks oh so bold
It's said now that people will be shorter in height
They can fit twice as many in the same building site
They say it's alright
Beginning with the tenants of the town of Harlow
In the interest of humanity, they've been told they must go
Told they must go-go-go-go

I think I've fixed a new deal 
A dozen properties, we'll buy at five and sell at thirty four 
Some are still inhabited
It's time to send the Winkler to see them
He'll have to work some more

With land in your hand, you'll be happy on earth 
Then invest in the Church for your heaven
