The Lyrics

I get up from my snoring,
Need no 'larm clock roaring,
Make the eight foot trip out to the privy.
Wet my whistle with some suds,
And eat some cookies, eat some muffins,
Go to work while still in my skivvies.

And it's no strain nor grind,
When a gig is work like mine,
A stark, unshaven slob who sits all day.
There's no bossing to avoid,
'Cause you see I'm unemployed.
I love the perks, it's nothing but play.

Oh, I'll be...
Takin' care of bitmaps. (Cut and paste)
Take a squarish chick mapped. (Slim the waist)
I can fake with point-and-click apps. (Found online)
Takin' careless pic snaps and making them look fine.
Work out!

If it were sleazy like phishin',
They could put me in prison,
Livin' with a loud crowd of fellows.
But I'm not behind the bars,
As I practice my art.
I can turn an icky brown into yellow.

Tweak a scene to optimum,
By combining skill with fun.
Sell the stuff to someone who'll pay.
With no jerks that seem annoyed,
It's a ball, well-enjoyed.
I love this work that's nothing but play

And I'll be...
Takin' care of bitmaps. (Crop and scale)
Take to fairs and get claps. (Lots for sale)
I'm erasing garish mishaps. (Now looks nice)
Takin' care of bitmaps, a quirky paradise.
Perfect!

Whoo!
Just right! Wow...

Paste with flair to my bitmaps.
Eschew mistakes, heaven sakes!
Whoo!

To sketch is never boring,
When the hard rock's soaring.
Hate the eight-bit scheme, it's much too gritty.
There's some bristles on the brush,
A-tweakin' bushes, leavin' blushes
On the work to make it look pretty.

And if my brain's not prime,
I can quit my work at nine,
And opt to lay on couch and rest all day.
And I'm ever full of joy,
'Cause you see I'm unemployed.
I love the work, it's nothing but play.

And I'll be...
Takin' care of bitmaps. (Decorate)
Takin' care of bitmaps. (Animate)
I'll be takin' care of bitmaps (Bits aligned)
Takin' care of bitmaps and merging some designs.

Takin' care of bitmaps. (Whoo)
Takin' care of bitmaps.
Takin' care of bitmaps. (Yup)
Takin' care of bitmaps.
Takin' care of bitmaps. (Fix mistakes)
Takin' care of bitmaps. (Bend the shapes)
Takin' care of bitmaps. (Digitize)
Takin' care of bitmaps, my work could win a prize.
Whoo!

Takin' care of bitmaps.
Takin' care of bitmaps.
I'll be takin' care of bitmaps.
I'll be takin' care of bitmaps.
Whoo!
Takin' care of bitmaps.
Takin' care of bitmaps.
