The Lyrics

No, Merry-and-Pippin fans, it's not about a candidate for a sex change. It's about a guy trying to survive in a Bush economy.
Insurance business was mine 'til I found my
job outsourced
boss was forced.
Hired at the factory, stacked up the widgets.
Got laid off.
Don't you scoff.

Don't know that I will, but until I can find me
a job where I'll stay and boss won't laugh behind me
I'll be what I am
temporary man
temporary man

I've had up to here being where they serve fast food.
Part-time serve.
Got some nerve.
I know it's been done, having one job your whole life.
Right or wrong
whole life long.

Don't know that I will, but until I can find me
a job where I'll stay and boss won't laugh behind me
I'll be what I am
temporary man
temporary man

(horn bridge)

Don't know that I will, but until I can find me
a job where I'll stay and boss won't laugh behind me
I'll be what I am
temporary man
temporary man
temporary man
mm-hm-hm-hm...

Michael, Hmmm...sounds vaguely familiar, I start a 4-month assignment with a Tax Software Company over in East Los Angeles on Monday morning. But actually, that seems just about right for where I'm at right now. OH...almost forgot..."would you like some Five's with that today, Sir?" nice job...

Suck it up, people! If you want your jobs back, you'll have to learn how to do something better than the workers overseas can. Our economy is not under our government's control, and there's very little any politician can do to help you.

Sir, you are truly an inspiration to all of us lazy liberal layabouts who loll around and live off the lard of the land. Consider yourself the angelic messenger of the Right, tossing anchors of hope to those who might happen to be currently less fortunate than yourself. I just hope there is one left for you if and when your turn in the barrel comes up... Oh, BTW, I'm perfectly happy with my situation in life, it's much better than it's ever been - and no politician had anything to do with that, either. Anyway, looking forward to more of your inspirational messages of encouragement that you deign to toss down on those of us you consider less blessed. Peace...
