The Lyrics

[EMPLOYEE]
To the beat of Whitesnake I sped through the freeway
Alarm did not go off, so I slept in again
Line at the coffee shop was stagnant
Found out that my female cat was pregnant
And somehow my nephew managed to trip up the stairs

You have an addiction to a certain kind of staunchness
Like clocking in at 9 a.m. — 9 a.m. sharp
So when I saw I was a minute late
I realized you’d be very irate
So I made up an illness and ran to the bathroom

But you didn’t have to write me up
Blow a fuse whenever I show you documentation
And blow it off as something fake
And proceed to tell me that your give-a-damn’s busted
Oh, you should know that things do come up
And that calls to the office drop-off line sometimes get dropped
Or get ignored altogether
Guess it looks like I’ve got a no call no show

Guess it looks like I’ve got a no call no show
No ifs, ands, or buts; it’s a no call no show

[SUPERVISOR]
Now and then I think of all the B.S. that you fed me
It was always under the guise of something legitimate
I’m tired of all your abuse
Listening to ev-e-ry excuse
You should have clocked in long ago
Or called me to inform me that you’d be late; now it’s no call no show

[EMPLOYEE]
But you didn’t have to write me up
Blow a fuse whenever I show you documentation
And blow it off as something fake
And proceed to tell me that your give-a-damn’s busted
Oh, you should know that things do come up
And that calls to the office drop-off line sometimes get dropped
Or get ignored altogether
Guess it looks like I’ve got a no call no show

[SUPERVISOR]
Excuses…

[EMPLOYEE]
No call no show

[SUPERVISOR]
Excuses…

[EMPLOYEE]
Guess it looks like I’ve got a no call no show

[SUPERVISOR]
Let’s talk in…

[EMPLOYEE]
No call no show

[SUPERVISOR]
…my office

[EMPLOYEE]
No ifs, ands, or buts; it’s a no call no show

[SUPERVISOR]
No call no show
Three times in a row
No call no show
You’re fired

[EMPLOYEE (shouting)]
I QUIT!
I just started my new job today, but boy was I feeling inspired to write a parody about the classic no call no show.
