Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Done as part of a parody of a startup company's history. Later sung "spontaneously" by request of a recently laid-off engineer, to the astonishment of the others in the bar at the time.
Consider yourself laid off;
Consider yourself gone with the furniture.
We've pissed away all our dough --
That's why we're going to let you go.

Consider yourself washed up;
Consider yourself out on the street again.
There isn't the time to sob --
Because you no longer have a job

Well, we spent enough to burn a BMW
In the parking lot each day;
Now we're out of cash and we don't want to trouble you,
So we'll send you on your way!

Consider that you've been canned;
Things didn't work out as planned;
The time has come to end what we have all enjoyed --
Consider yourself unemployed!

Consider yourself discharged;
You've got a pink slip, why don't you hit the road?
Your drawings were picturesque --
But now it's time to clean out your desk!

Well, we spent enough to burn a BMW
In the parking lot each day;
Now we're out of cash and we don't want to trouble you,
So we'll send you on your way!

Consider that you've been canned;
Things didn't work out as planned;
The time has come to end what we have all enjoyed --
Consider yourself unemployed!
