Leroy’s timeless lyrics for THE SYSTEM speak volumes:

“If you no work you no eat
and when you work your budget won’t meet
it’s like begging a little dough expecting a whole lot of bread
and man you work, work, work, until you drop down dead
The system, the system, the system, whoa oh, whoa oh

Picture my grandfather, he is sixty nine
and he’s been working like hell, for a long long time
and what has he got, just his pipe and a cot,
me I’m a young young man, you can’t give me dat
The system, the system, the system, whoa oh, whoa oh

Don’t do me that, I won’t like it

Picture my grandfather, he is sixty nine
he’s been working like hell, for a long long time
and now they recommend the Pension Plan
yes, this is the system of Babylon

I won’t take it, don’t want it, don’t need it
the system should go, the system, the system, whoa oh

Don’t want it to reach me, take it away”

PARTY TIME’s lyrics face mortality & aging straight away:

“We’ve got to live some life, before we’re old
We’ve got to live some life, before we’re cold
Time is short, so hear me man, come on
Let’s live the life the best we can

Don’t try to work your soul away
Remember there is another day

We’re having a party tonight
Where everything will be alright
So come on, come on, everyone
It’s time that we should have some fun

We’ve got to live some life
before we’re old
We’ve got to live some life
before we’re cold”
