The Lyrics

Bump, bump, bump, bump, ba-dump-bump-bump-bump-bump!

She was afraid to come out of her bedroom.
She was as nervous as she could be.
She was afraid to come out of her bedroom.
'Cause a chance she'd get fired, she'd see.

Two, three, four, tell the people why she's sore!

It was an itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie, no-job-secure economy
that we've had since Bush first came our way!
An itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie, no-job-secure economy
so in her bedroom she wanted to stay!

Two, three, four, stick around, we'll tell you more!

Bump, bump, bump, bump, ba-dump-bump-bump-bump-bump!

Now, she's afraid to go out into traffic
'cause health insurance, she just can't afford.
Yeah, she's afraid to go out into traffic
'cause the profits her boss gets to hoard.

Two, three, four, tell the people why she's sore!

It was an itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie, no-job-secure economy
that we've had since Bush first came our way!
An itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie, no-job-secure economy
so out of traffic she wanted to stay!

Two, three, four, stick around, we'll tell you more!

Bump, bump, bump, bump, ba-dump-bump-bump-bump-bump!

Now she's afraid to go into his office
and I wonder what she's gonna do?
Now her boss, he comes out of his office
and it looks like at work she is through!

Two, three, four, laid-off people, add one more!

Because of itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie, no-job-secure economy
that we've had since Bush first came our way!
An itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie, no-job-secure economy
and she's become unemployed today!

From the bedroom to the traffic
she knew just what was in store!
Now she's just treading water!
Vote Democratic in '04!

Ohhh, nice political ad. Did you email a copy to Kerry for his campaign? Seems like those dems need all the help they can get.

Clever title, clever parody - but bad timing. The economy grew at an 8.2% annual rate in the third quarter - the fastest pace since 1984.

Three million unemployed, John. To them, to those making minimum wage, and to those who need health insurance, 8.2 percent growth ain't nothin' but a number.

Bigger economy = more jobs. Y'all gotta be patient ;-)

Well, *I* have a job, and isn't that all that really matters? Fun read.

Michael, you certainly hit a home run with this song. It has not been easy these past two years for good people to keep jobs in this uncertain economy.

Patient, Cube? I've been waiting almost three years for Georgie to keep his promise to "restore honor and integrity to the White House." I guess it'll have to be four years.
