The Lyrics

I'm up at six to be to work by eight
I'm right on time, I'm never late
To do a job I really hate
And Spacely says I'm really doing fine
As long as I stay well in line
And kiss his pale behind

This job has taken its toll on me
He said, you're fired, too many times before
And his heart is missing inside of him
If I had my choice, I'd never see his face anymore
Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

It looks like Elroy might need braces soon
And Judy wants to see the moon
And Jane wants a coat of racoon
And so you see I cannot quit my job
Part of the quiet desperate mob
Another poor white collar slob

This job has taken its toll on me
I said, this sucks, worse than the job before
And my heart is breaking inside of me
But I have no choice, cuz there just aint no jobs anymore
Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

My robot maid broke down, parts scattered all around
And Astro's vet bill's out of sight
And every day I find, I'm getting more behind
On these bills I have to pay
So I guess I'll work a few more days

This job has taken its toll on me
He said, you're fired, too many times before
And his heart is missing inside of him
If I had my choice, I'd never see his face anymore

This job has taken its toll on me
I said, this sucks, worse than the job before
And my heart is breaking inside of me
But I have no choice, cuz there just aint no jobs anymore

This job has taken its toll on me
My hair, all gone, full head the year before
And my heart is breaking because of this
If I had my choice, I'd never work in this place no more
