The Lyrics

All of this is based on fact. Some of the names have been changed to protect the incompetent -- the lawyer's name was not Maggie, for example.
(instrumental opening)

I ain't gonna work at the arcade no more.
No, I ain't gonna work at the arcade no more.
Well, it sits on the boardwalk, gets nipped by sea-wind's jaws.
The guy who runs the place is breaking child-labor laws.
I'm seventeen, at one, I'm on the floor.
I ain't gonna work at the arcade no more.

I ain't gonna work at Mega Movies no more.
No, I ain't gonna work at Mega Movies no more.
Well, we sweep up the popcorn, and sweep the Cracker Jack
and watch for smoking kids while we watch bad films in the back.
I'm stuck here with bad plot from "Road Trip 4."
I ain't gonna work at Mega Movies no more.

I ain't gonna work at Olive Garden no more.
No, I ain't gonna work at Olive Garden no more.
Well, they dump some olive oil on the floor just for kicks.
They charge you when you give your pals a basket of bread sticks.
And counting silverware's a stupid chore.
I ain't gonna work at Olive Garden no more.

I ain't gonna work selling Sears shoes no more.
No, I ain't gonna work selling Sears shoes no more.
Well, they want bargain prices on shoes that are wide.
They take off their old sneakers, smell 'em and you'll wish you'd died.
And that's if crazy women don't have corns!
I ain't gonna work selling Sears shoes no more.

I ain't gonna work for Maggie's firm no more.
No, I ain't gonna work for Maggie's firm no more.
Well, she's such a crazy lawyer, she gives me the blues.
I'm starting to have sympathy for these poor shlubs she sues.
She caught me playing Free Cell, 'cause I'm bored.
So, I ain't gonna work for Maggie's firm no more.

(instrumental fadeout)

Great choice of OS! I wrote a parody of this song some time ago named Temp Job, proving that great minds think alike!

This song was the opener at the Dylan concert I went to. And this was an excellently done parody, 5s
