The Lyrics

(Note: This is a re-submitted version, I made a couple of line-length adjustments to match the original pace more sharply)
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 for us 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
Watching 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
"Come on, pay 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 next week (Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo)

(sing this out to end)

I hope this isn't the one you were going to submit for the contest. If it is, I will have to change mine.

Rick D - I didn't realize until after I did this re-submit that YOU were using this CSN song for the contest. I sent you a separate e-mail note once I discovered that. Since you were first with the entry it wouldn't be right to push your's out. I'll stay with my original choice, I'm not unhappy with that one anyway. The main reason I thought of switching was because that one ("A Boob At The Half") was posted recently and got a lot of looks but my "Suite" parody's audience was more limited to us older CSN fan types - wanted to give it a little more exposure. Anyway, I won't put this up for thr Tournament at this point. It's not going torm do me all that much harm - even if I lose the oriiginal "votes and notes" I had kind of wanted to see this revision up because it corrects what I perceived as a couple of very minor flaws in the 1st one..

Rick - Got your e-mail and sent reply. In case you don't see that 1st -Status Quo is operative: "Suite" is your entry and not mine. Good luck in the contest. I'm going back to sleep - sometimes I give myself a headache. Hope I didn't give you one, too...

Did you get that big lengthy attachment I sent? I don't usually do that and I don't know if it went.
Paul Robinson - March 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Rick D - My program wants to know what program your attachment is written on before it will try to open it. So I did receive, I didn't want to proceed with trying to open it until I got the answer to that. HEY, CHRIS, i appreciate your looking at my work here, but the self-promotion thing you're doing is WAY over the top. Sometimes, "DKTOS" also means "I don't like the artist whose work you are basing the parody on and I'm not interested in spending my time listening to that first to make a judgement on your work", and the Acronym "IDLTAWWYABTPOAINIISMTLTTFTMAJOYW" is a bit too lengthy and possible blunt to want to use very often. Please appreciate that this took quite a while to type since I have a bandage on one of my main typing fingers that has slowed my usual blazing typing speed to a crawl by causing a lot of "fat-finger" like typing errors. It's wearing on my patience and adding to my "Maximum Bluntness Capability". Thank you.

Hi Paul I loved this song really good 5s... ion the light of the remarks above please dont take this the wrong way but I did address a similar subject once when a friend was made redundant.. I'm not looking for votes just a matter of interest in subject matter(it was to the tune of wasted time by the Eagles

Martha & Johnny D - Thanks! Martha, I'd be happy to look at yours, I love to look at parodies by interesting writers to songs that I like and know pretty well. Most of us post here because we think our stuff is good and hopefully interesting to others so there's nothing wrong with pointing it out now and then, particularly works with similar subject theme. It only inappropriate when someone goes over the top like that Idiot Chris did with his Spamming.
