Work smarter, work harder, we believe you can do more
And while you’re at it, be a good boy
Clean your desk and mop the floor
And all those awful Dilbert cartoons hangin on your wall?
Well, they’re sendin' the wrong message boy
We invite you to tear ’em down

I got a shitty job
You got a shitty job
We all got shitty jobs

Well I dread Monday morning
And the glare of the office lights
Answering twenty emails from a boss
Who stays up all night
Dreamin’ up bogus things to do
More shit work for me and you
How’d he get to be in charge, man?
He hasn’t got a clue

I got a shitty job
You got a shitty job
We all got shitty jobs

After many months of torture, yeah, many months of pain
I finally figured out that I had no one else to blame
So I marched up to the boss and with no animosity
I spoke the words that set my spirit free

I quit this shitty job
I don’t need this shitty job
So long to this shitty job!

COOL MUSIC FOR A BIG DUMB WORLD: Bean Hoy's songs "are a laundry list of local and national maladies, often depicted with a dark sense of humor. As often as not, the music is as playful as the words. All in all, a reflection of inane pop culture, where one no longer condemns the plastic world around us but instead videotapes it for later when there's nothing else on." –LAX magazine ... more
