Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Don't we all have a suck up at work?
Maybe you like to kiss the boss's seat,
'Cause you don't want to wind up on the street.
Maybe on hands and knees you'll go and crawl,
For that race for money you'll give it all your all.

Give it a whirl? In this race I don't want no part,
I do believe, you got the horse before the cart,
So, but if you money grubbing be,
No need for magic potion,
Suck up for that promotion.
Too much the cost of living be,
You can't dine on devotion,
Suck up for that promotion.

Maybe you think that work would wear you down,
Your nose got broke when your boss turned around.
Maybe you just lack good work ethic tools,
You suck up guys know all the suck up rules.

Give it a whirl? In this race I don't want no part,
I do believe, you got the horse before the cart,
So, but if you money grubbing be,
No need for magic potion,
Suck up for that promotion.
Too much the cost of living be,
You can't dine on devotion,
Suck up for that promotion.

Maybe you like to kiss the boss's seat,
'Cause you don't want to wind up on the street.
Maybe on hands and knees you'll go and crawl,
For that race for money you'll give it all your all.

Give it a whirl? In this race I don't want no part,
I do believe, you got the horse before the cart,
So, but if you money grubbing be,
No need for magic potion,
Suck up for that promotion.
Too much the cost of living be,
You can't dine on devotion,
Suck up for that promotion.

Maybe you think that work would wear you down,
Your nose got broke when your boss turned around.
Maybe you just lack good work ethic tools,
You suck up guys know all the suck up rules.

Give it a whirl? In this race I don't want no part,
I do believe, you got the horse before the cart,
So, but if you money grubbing be,
No need for magic potion,
Suck up for that promotion.
Too much the cost of living be,
You can't dine on devotion,
Suck up for that promotion.

Too much the cost of living be,
You can't dine on devotion...
