“I can sit and stand / Beg and roll over”

Watch: The Happy Mondays – WFL

I was listening to the Happy Mondays the other day and was struck by the thought that WFL (which I’d believed to be a kind of hedonistic bragging – “I ordered a line / you formed a queue,” etc) might actually be a dialog between the crassly capitalist and their others (“Is there nothing else you can do?” / “Well not much, I’ve not been trained”). Possible material for the theory of proletarian resentment?
