The Lyrics

Dude ditches work. Because he can't be arsed, essentially.
Most times my alarm goes off
I wish that I didn't hear
Cause I-I, I really hate the constant hell
That is retail, I fear I can't disa-appear
A total lie, of course, been abusin' my sick days
Si-ince I-I learned that dea-ea-eal
It's not like I'm that important to the gri-ind
Good day to pla-ay hoo-ooky-y, I feel

I don't care what my da-amn bo-oss thinks, wo-on't be the-ere
I'm sick of arseholes in the lines, yeah-eah
My co-workers get stu-uck wi-ith them? I-I don't ca-are
I do-o-on't ca-a-a-a-are

Ev'ry ti-ime that I'm sick of bus rides
I ditch to play Halo 5
And I've a silver tongue, so I-I
Don't get pinged when I skive, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh-oh-ooh-ooh
I can sense what's in store if I went to work today
Screamin' kids thro-owin' food arou-ou-ound
And so I think it's better for me if I skive
Off wo-ork a-and faff about

I don't care what the o-owne-er thinks, wo-on't be the-ere
Think I'd rather play games online, yeah-eah
Breach of my employee-ee co-ontract? I-I don't ca-are
I do-o-on't ca-a-a-a-are

Wait, that's my boss's gametag, right?
Swee-eet, he-e a-also skived

Seems we both agree tha-at wo-ork stinks, wo-on't be the-ere
Might open chat, craft alibis, yeah-eah
I'm not bein' respo-onsi-ible? I-I don't ca-are
I do-o-on't ca-a-a-a-are

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo
No, no-ooh, no, noo-noo-noo-noo-noo-ooh
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo
No, no-ooh, no-ooh, no, no-ooh

I've never skived off work, mainly because I've only had work experience, so I've got a degree riding on it. Sure, I may take a little longer on the bog, but I'd never skip work entirely.
