The Lyrics

Well, another CSN classic to parody. This was the 1st track off their 1st album together back in 1969. Always wanted to do a parody of it but it's a toughie. Used my job situation as the subject.
It's gotten to the point where I've no job anymore
I just got fired
I need some work, but sadly there's none to be found
I can't get hired
I make calls, I kiss butt, I browse "Monster Jobs"
But I can't get hired

Remember what I read, they said, they'd treat me like a brother
That was such bullshit
They kicked our ass; down-sized us, there's no jobs here now
A full-fledged reaming
I make calls, read brochures, I apply on-line
But I can't get hired

Taking my job away from me now
Made some calls, no one's replying
Hope this don't mean I must go back to school
I'll go nuts there, there's no denying
I've made calls, I've kissed balls, looked for jobs in malls
Still, I can't get hired

Swallowed my pride, I'm calling folks to sell worthless bullshit
This sap's still listening
This is a crock, I don't want to reel this jerk in
I cannot con you
Got no job, now I sob, I feel like a slob
Still I can't get hired, no I can't get hired, no I can't get hired, no I can't get hired

(Instrumental break)

Friday evening, Monday in the afternoon
There is no work for you
Tuesday morning, welfare folks are tired of you
Food stamps you'll have to use
And they tell you it's like this; "Well, listen to me, buddy;
If we find that you are lying your benefits you'll stand to lose"

I've got no answer
They say "Please go away"
We've got no work for you
Who will now feed me?
I haven't ate today
I just ran out of food

(Instrumental break)

Asshole at the pawn shop
Bought up all my CD's
Got no sounds, brings me down
Now I watch daytime TV

I could take a crap job
This is starting to bite
Can't see no real job for me
So far I have found zero

This is gonna kill me
Lying 'round lamenting
My ex-wife
Called tonight
"How come you haven't paid me?"

(Instrumental break)



I'm screwed; I have got no money for food (Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo)
Just to eat I have to pick up cans off the street (Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo)
In a hole; I don't feel like showing my face (Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo)
Could be me super-sizing fries by next week (Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo)

(sing this out to end)

I like it. You're back with a vengence. (literally) I knew someone was eventually gonna do this song besides me, and I'm glad it was you. Lots of people here in Silicontown in the same boat, as you know.

Thanks all! Boy is it is bummer trying to use the Culver City Public Library Internet! Couldn't log on to "Amiright" for about 1/2 hour. Got crashed out once and then PC said I couldn't access because user (me) had limited access ( not true). Finally got on. Complain, Complain, Complain....But hey, it's free and it's my fault for being indecisive about what brand of PC I wanted. Well, I have a little time left before they bring in the next clown so I better use it for something...

Are you stuck in Culver City with the Venice blues again? ;-)

Meriadoc - Something like that. My rant on FEB 11 was only a preview of "Things to Come": the Library Server was slowing to "zero" on an off during the 1 hour time I was alloted. Since I don't have my PC at home yet I was trying to post a parody that afternoon. I was at the final editing stage and re-reading everything carefully one last time and my time ran out just about 10 seconds before I was going to hit the "submit" button. I foolishly had neglected to copy the text and paste it in an e-mail to myself and I had made several changes to the lyrics that I did not copy into my hand notes. So tonight I posted the song having spent more time re-writing it, hand-writing it very neatly so I could transpose accurately. I was really fuming after I had gotten exactly "zero" done that afternoon at the Library. Jeez, what a whiner...

Alvin, thanks once again. One of my favorite CSN songs! It looks like this song is getting a bit of a well-deserved revival on the site since Rick D's wonderful version was show-cased in the "March Parody Madness Tournament". Ethan posted a very fine version today. When I first posted mine I began to realize how many folks on this site weren't even BORN yet when this song first came out! Just before I came on the site tonight I had just finished playing the first CSN album through (I did another parody on one of the songs tonight, "Helplessly Hoping" so now I've done 6 of the 10 songs that were on that release. I'm considering doing a parody of each song on the album that will have a connecting theme - I'll have to see if I can make them all good enough for me to submit it as a piece.)
