The Lyrics

I'm gonna collect unemployment
Try to live off unemployment
Why? Because I'm laid off
Due to the Bush economy

Working for someone else, there's no guarantee
In this economy that there's job security

I'm gonna file for unemployment
Look forward to my enjoyment
Don't want to find a job
Live off the middle class welfare

After six months are gone
I will file an extension
My face is beet red
because of the hypertension

Leave your job
Be a slob
Drive your wife crazy

Sleep a lot
Eat a lot
Always be lazy

Leave your job
Be a slob
Drive your wife crazy

Sleep a lot
Eat a lot
Always be lazy

I threw away the newspaper
including the want ads
I'm lazy as hell
and lacking sheer motivation

I know that you'll never fail
When you send us in your e-mail
and tell us the reason why
you won't get up and find a job
