You Make It All Worthwhile

Ray Davies, released on Soap Opera, © Davray Music Ltd. 1975

.

I mustn't stay in this job too long

I gotta get out before the hold is too strong

Gotta get out before my ambition is gone

'Cos it's breaking me up and bringing me down.

.

But when I get home you make it all worthwhile,

You make me laugh and you make me smile

And after a hard day sorting out the files

You make it all worthwhile.

.

[Wife:]

Oh, I've just remembered we've only got shepherd's pie,

Do you like it?

.

[Star:] No, I hate it.

.

[Wife:] Hate it? But you see Norman loves it so much and you did ask me to act normally, didn't you. I mean I can't cope with all that fancy stuff you like to eat.

.

[Star:] Alright, I'll eat it and afterwards, I'll write a whole verse about your cooking.

.

You mustn't blame yourself like you do,

It's gonna make a nervous wreck out of you,

So wipe your nose and dry your eyes,

What's the point of cracking up all because of shepherd's pie?

.

Baby, you never know what I've been through.

I break my back and sweat and slave

To bring some money home to you.

Baby, you won't believe it but it's true

What a boring occupation can do,

It can make a nervous wreck out of you,

It can kill your spirit and destroy your mind.

.

But when I get home you make it all worthwhile.

You make me laugh and you make me smile

And after a hard day sorting out the files

You make it all worthwhile.

.

[Wife:] Would you like steam pudding and custard for afters.

.

[Star:] Darling, that would be marvellous.

.

And when I come home you make it all worthwhile.

You make me laugh and you make me smile

And after a hard day working on the files

You make it all worthwhile

.

[Star:] Come on darling, let's go and have dinner.

.

And when I come home you make it all worthwhile.

You make me laugh and you make me smile

And after a hard day working on the files

You make it all worthwhile.
