"I Want A Raise"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Getting a raise right now can be a pretty difficult proposition. Particularly if you use the technique our protagonist employs here.
I was sitting on my *ss at work, an idea came to me
I was long past due a raise; worked for chicken feed
Wanted a raise

Boss, a lousy, lying cretin - raise he won't allow
Gave me a self-serving sermon; I said "Go to H*ll"
There goes my severance

I want a raise, yes I do, I want a raise
Increase my pay; these *ssholes wouldn't so where am I now?
I'm gone
Wanted a raise, yes I did, they wouldn't pay
Tempers got frayed; shot off my mouth, they kicked my *ss out

"Liar" through my teeth I rant, and then I threw a chair
Overhead security camera; cops will soon be there
Swarming everywhere

Wanted a raise, yes I did, but I was crazed
Dragged me away, bet they did; jail's where I stay
No fun
Heard the judge say; "Ninety-days", I said, "No way"
He stared, said; "Shut up, I could give you more", I'm mum

Jack - well, I case it'll have to be the thought that counts on "overall". When I saw all "5's" except a solitary "2" vote in overall I was wondering what somebody could have been thinking. I will survive. Mac - thanks for looking in. Alvin, thanks.
