The Lyrics

There is nothing so degrading as reviewing your life on paper for the sole purpose of begging for employment. MY resumé is, of course, completely honest! (All right, maybe I DIDN"T invent the internet!) But this poor loser will never get past the screening process without a little "tweaking."
My resumé, should it be text or show a photograph?
To get ahead I have to show what I know.
The opportunities come and go.
Gotta make more dough.

My education is so spotty I must flesh it out.
A little fill-in makes a record sure to please.
I could use a couple of degrees.
I'll just type 'em in. What a sin!

Resumé, my whole career before my eyes!
Not beneath a few disturbing lies.
I hope they don't check back.

My resumé shows off my life and work experience.
Yes, it's a crock, but otherwise I won't be seen.
I've worked in places that I've never been.
Gotta beat the screen!

(Piccolo Trumpet Interlude)

Resumé, my whole career before my eyes,
Full of fishy stinking lies
to cover things I lack.

Behind the scenes there are some things that I'm not proud about.
I've been in jail for selling dope back in the day.
You'd think I'd keep that from my resumé.
It's there anyway . . .

My resumé says I'm experienced with customers.
My resumé says I know how to close a deal.
It doesn't matter if it's for real.
I'll just type it in. What a sin!

Resumé, my whole career before my eyes!
Not beneath a few disturbing lies.
I hope they don't check back.

Resumé, my whole career before my eyes!
Not beneath a few disturbing lies.

Resumé!

Rick C: Thank you for the kind comments! Peter: That's the fastest I have ever changed jobs! Thanks. Michael: Coming from a true Amiright Superstar, that's quite a compliment! TJC: Thanks! Hope things go well for your kids! Dee: Thanks, I can use all the "padding" I can get! Tim: I appreciate the reference. But I'm not sure that "creative insanity" is the kind of thing I want on my resume! LOL.

Thanks to all who read, commented and voted!
