The Lyrics

Another work moan.
And now, the boss is near
I must embrace my subjugation
I have to kiss his rear
Or else I'll face sure termination
I've worked a life that's full
Of more sand traps then any fairway
But they are management
I did it their way

Regrets, I've had a bunch
Why did I not find life's enjoyment?
I had no big lucky breaks
I made mistakes in my employment
I wish I'd studied hard
Each working day is a bad hair day
But they are management
I do it their way

Yes there were times, I'm sure you know
I almost thought, I'd run the show
But then the boss gave me the slip
And then I knew, I'm not a VIP
Face full of egg, I went and begged
And did it their way

I've shoved, I've pushed and hauled
That rock uphill and still no ending
I'd hoped I could retire
But wife and kids still love spending
And so I go to work
To where each day is a nightmare day
And though it cannot be
I do it their way

If I were Chairman of the Board
I surely wouldn't be ignored
I'd say the things I truly feel
Not put my shoulder to the wheel
My bloody nose is here to show
I do it their way

Yes, it's done their waaayyyyy
Yes, Boss.

Korporate Kudos, Rick! I Loved it. Y'know, I've often wondered why they have company picnics. You don't like them in the office - why would they be any fun at a picnic?

Rick, Dun-can-you-wrote
This funny song
It's not too short
It's not too long
How working stiffs
Like we must feel
When on kneepads
We're forced to kneel
In metaphor
To boss we whore
And do it
Their waaaaaaayyyyyy

5's, Highlander!

Another very good Dilbert-type parody, Rick. I enjoyed the golf analogy.

Bloody nose? Not brown nose? Then again, keeping with the "My Way" theme, why be Chairman of the Board...when you can be The King? Just don't, the next time the boss gives you more work, say, "Thankyaverymuch." Here's an extra $5.55 an hour.
