The Lyrics

Experience means nothing
To a boss looking for people he can hire on the cheap
And if you're over age fifty
You'll catch a stinging slap of age discrimination
Out on the job market
You may experience people thinking that you are crazy
After you leave an interview
You might hear your interviewer laughing so hard

I am concerned, 'cause I have to eat
It's only me pursuing somethin' I need so bad
At every job that I apply to
I have to hear I'm overqualified again

You have not returned my calls
As I wait by the phone and hope for a job offer
I have sent my resume
Even if more than two hundred people have applied
You might have seen me standing
In the depressing lines at the unemployment office
If I remember having pride
When I applied for an entry level position

I am concerned, 'cause I have to eat
It's only me pursuing somethin' I need so bad
At every job that I apply to
I have to hear I'm overqualified again

----- instrumental interlude -----

At every job that I apply to
I have to hear I'm overqualified again
