The Lyrics

At work, hummin' this old ditty
Sit at my desk, wishin' I could go quitty
So tired, attitude is shitty
Makin' fun of songs, and thinkin' I'm witty
All around, workers makin' chit-chat
Walking on the eggshells, slavin' for a fat cat

Money's tight for a workin' slob
Try to find another job
Dream on dream on, it just feels wrong
We spite the boss, for the whole day long
Oh, well, at least there's this song
You feel like Walter Mitty
When you're hummin' this old ditty

No break, even for your bladder
Tryin' to climb that corporate ladder
New kid, treats you like an adder
Gotta keep an eye, and listen to the patter
Till I'm droppin' from the heart stop
Runnin' up the stairs, got an Uzi for the rooftop

Money's tight for a workin' slob
Try to find another job
Dream on dream on, it just feels wrong
We spite the boss, for the whole day long
Oh, well, at least there's this song
You feel like Walter Mitty
When you're hummin' this old ditty
