The Lyrics

The oppressed becomes the oppressor, and he still hates his job.
Grunts and stunts and working late.
The cafeteria food I hate.
I seem consigned unto this fate.
I've looked at work that way.
But since the day I got promote
this paperwork's shoved down my throat.
I can't make this department float.
Am I better off today?

I've looked at work from boss side now.
From low to high, and still somehow
it's work's illusions I recall.
I really don't know work at all.

Fuss and bus on my commute.
My IBM just won't compute.
The manager says, "Don't get cute."
I've looked at work that way.
But now I can afford to drive
but in this traffic, who can thrive?
And paperwork will still arrive.
Seems like more everyday.

I've looked at work from boss side now.
From low to high, and still somehow
it's work's illusions I recall.
I really don't know work at all.

Work with jerks in retail hell.
Big-ticket items, strive to sell.
The stockroom has an awful smell.
I've looked at work that way.
But now I am the man in charge
too busy to be living large
and in my office these kids barge
expecting help each day.

I've looked at work from boss side now.
From low to high, and still somehow
it's work's illusions I recall.
I really don't know work... at all.

Good job on the scan. When I did this I had trouble. I'm sure the "Office Space" crowd relates.
