The Lyrics

I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore
I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore
The permanent employees
When they do something wrong
They need to find a scapegoat
And then I came along
The next thing I know my butt was out the door
I'm not goona work a temp job anymore

I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore
No, I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore
I work next to employees
Who make much more than me
To watch them loaf and goof off
Is impossible to see
This combination just makes me want to roar
I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore

I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore
No, I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore
At first the temp agency
Was real friendly to me
But when I had a complaint
They claimed it could not be
This insolence makes my blood pressure soar
Ah, I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore

I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore
No, I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore
My time card was not signed
By the client at all
As a result, I was not paid
I'm financially against the wall
This simple error really made me sore
I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore

I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore.
No, I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore
I can offer any employer
A lot of advanced skills
But they put me in a job
Working in the paper mills
Filing ancient forms is such a crashing bore
I'm not gonna work a temp job anymore
