The Lyrics

And you ask me why I'm working here
It's not for the wages, that is clear
What's the chance that you'll give me a better raise?
Cuz I don't care what you're offering
And though paid vacations are nice things
What's the chance that you'll give me a better raise?

So make the change
You forgot about
And each paycheck will be bigger now

Or tonight's the night I put my two weeks in

I want something simple here for my skills
Because anything helps pay the bills
What's the chance that you'll give me a better raise?
I'm just one poor student with college dreams
I need ten million bucks, or so it seems
What's the chance that you'll give me a better raise?

So make the change
You forgot about
And each paycheck will be bigger now

Or tonight's the night I put my two weeks in

I wish every hour would give me more
It'd be nice to have some savings stored
What's the chance that you'll give me a better raise?
So make the change
You forgot about
And each paycheck will be bigger now

Or tonight's the night I put my two weeks in

Or tonight's the night I put my two weeks in
