Work Song by Spine Caroline's
It's another early morning,
sun came up without a warning.
Never do-a nothing till I'm showered and clean.
Got my pager, got my cuffs,
a matching tie should be enough,
I never leave my house without-a something to eat.
Early riser by genetic,
take the stairs 'cause I'm athletic.
Always at the office before anyone else.
I take my faxes to be copied,
grab a donut, grab some coffee,
picture my diploma sitting on my shelf.
And the monotony is killing me and I, try, to deny,
this corporate labotomy. Yeah!! Yeah!! Yeah!!
I need a suit of armor for a meeting,
knowing I'm gonna take a beating.
Understaffed and my department's in a crunch.
Budget has become a hassle,
boss is ripping me a new a**hole,
says he wants an answer on his desk before lunch.
Afternoon things don't look better,
phone machine is breaking records,
500 messages from who knows where.
Staying late 'cause I'm a beginner,
call my girlfriend cancel dinner,
says she thinks I'm having an office affair. Yeah!! Yeah!!
The end of the day, there's no solution,
Face the traffic and pollution,
put a smille on my face, I didn't get fired.
Back at home to clear my head,
I grab a drink, fall into bed,
40 more years until I get to retire. Oh, oh!!
'Cause the monotony is killing me and I, try to deny,
this corporate labotomy. Yeah!! Yeah!!
