Work Song by Spinal Tap
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 asshole,
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!!
