Songs for Sovereign Professionals: We Gotta Get Out Of This Place

We gotta get out of this place
If its the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
‘Cause girl, there’s a better life
For me and you

Just in case you’re stuck in salary-slavery, or need to remember why you ever left its cosy embrace.

You’ll be dead before your time is due
I know it
Watch my daddy in bed and tired
Watch his hair been turning gray
He’s been working and slaving his life away

We Gotta Get Out Of This Place was a 1965 single from The Animals and it subsequently appeared on their second album, Animal Tracks.

This 1965 TV performance has a bonus appearance by a young Dr. Duckie Mallard, or is it Ilya Kuruakin? I get them so confused.

Even allowing for the cheesiness of 1960s TV, the band manages a commanding, moody performance.
