The Only Solution

Nineteen years old and sat in the house.
It's not her fault she can't get a job.
The situation is she's willing to take anything.
Just to earn a few bob.

It can't do much good for kids of her age.
Sitting for hours, writing page after page.
Applying for this and applying for that.
Then hearing she's been turned down flat.

It makes you wonder whats going on.
And what theyre going to do.
They keep on saying educate.
They have to stay on at school.

The way that I understand it.
There's only one thing to do.
That's lowering the retirement age.
Down to twenty two.
