The Lyrics

So...I was sick of sending out applications to jobs left right and centre and not getting no feedback...SO!...i decided to write this and record it..and send it to respected companies...The response was UNBELIEVABLE!

It nine o clock on a saturday,
And im putting some effort in
To find me a job, and get rid of this sob
For a role that I want to win.

I say, please can you look at my resume.
I feel im right for the role,
No longer do i want to stand about
Down at the ole rock and roll.

La la la de de da...la la de de da da da

Give me a job, oh you know you can
Give me a job, I write
I can do pretty much anything.
I can even work right through the night.

Now i know that i have experience.
With all the jobs that i've had.
And i'm quick on my feet and im easy to meet
I promise I'm a decent young lad.

Not having a job, it is killing me
A smile is no longer my face.
Im am sure that i could go very far
If i could just work at your place.


Oh La la la de de da...la la de de da da da

Now all i want is to rid of this..
all this trouble and strife.
I want to be saving all the pennies im earning
So i can set myself up for a life.

And i know your thinking this is Novelty
as i sit here singing this song.
But give me chance to do the work dance
and ill prove ill do you no wrong.

Give me a job, oh you know you can
Give me a job, I write
I can do pretty much anything.
I can even work right through the night.

So im setting the sound, as your reading this
I hope it's making you smile.
As i know its not the usual way
to send a C.V and file.
And I hope we can arrange an interview!!
Whilst im singing and still sitting here
I urge you to go on and contact me.
Be the best thing thats happened this year

Oh La la la de de da...la la de de da da da




Give me a job, oh you know you can
Give me a job, I write
I can do pretty much anything.
I can even work right through the night.
Hope you liked it! CoPyRiGhTeD!!
