Lyrics

Season 4 version

As you go from day to day
Looking for a better way
And you think you've got it all under control
So you bend the rules a bit
As you try to make things fit
But you know you should be doing as you're told
Although sometimes you'll find it so hard
And the wrong way may seem easier
It doesn't matter who you are
Obey the rules and you'll go far
We all live by rules and regulations
Rules and regulations now
Isn't it a bore, isn't it a chore
Sometimes it's so hard remembering all those
Strict rules, codes, laws, all those stipulations
Rules and regulations now
But without those rules and regulations
Where would we be now
So you see you have to try and do the right thing every time
If you do, then you will come to the conclusion
That there is right and there is wrong
And the rules help you along
And they're really only there for your protection
Although sometimes you'll find it so hard
And the wrong way may seem easier
It doesn't matter who you are
Obey the rules and you'll go far
We all live by rules and regulations
Rules and regulations now
Isn't it a bore, isn't it a chore
Sometimes it's so hard remembering all those
Strict rules, codes, laws, all those stipulations
Rules and regulations now
But without those rules and regulations
Where would we be now
We all live by rules and regulations
Rules and regulations now
Isn't it a bore, isn't it a chore
Sometimes it's so hard remembering all those
Strict rules, codes, laws, all those stipulations
Rules and regulations now
But without those rules and regulations
Where would we be now!

Isn't it a bore, isn't it a chore
Sometimes it's so hard remembering all those
Strict rules, codes, laws, all those stipulations

But without those rules and regulations
Where would we be now?
So you see you have to try and do the right thing every time
If you do, then you will come to the conclusion

But without those rules and regulations
Where would we be now?
