lyrics

This guy sits in his office working nine 'til seven
This guy sits in his office working nine 'til seven
He has a wife and kids; a family
And all he ever wishes is to be with them

He wishes on stars and on birthday candles,
He wishes on eyelashes, gets into lucky superstition
All in the hope

Jonny makes the money but doesn't get paid in the way that he wants to
He wants to be with them, wants to watch his babies grow older
Jonny makes the money but still isn't satisfied
He wants to be by their sides, all the time

This guy sits in his office working nine 'til seven
This guy sits in his office working nine 'til seven
He takes photographs and puts them on his desk
Just to remind him of their faces

He takes keyrings and items of his family's
Just to help him to feel at home
But it still isn't home

Jonny makes the money but doesn't get paid in the way that he wants to
He wants to be with them, wants to watch his babies grow older
Jonny makes the money but still isn't satisfied
He wants to be by their sides, all the time

Jonny decides to take the day off
And another one
And another
And then he retires

Now Jonny takes his kids to university and their work places
He just wishes that he could have done this
When they were younger

Jonny makes no money but now he gets paid in the way that he wants to
Because he is with them, and he's watching his babies grow older
Jonny makes no money but now he is satisfied
Because he is by their sides, all the time
