The Lyrics

His work is boring but it don't matter
He'll still keep working through the night
Cause the deadlines are so tight
He's taking No-Doz and drinking coffee
He's got to keep his spirits up
Though the work is always tough
Papers across the floor
They always give him more
He's so tired that he wants to doze off
He's done that before

And he's working in his pajamas
He's fighting off his stomach nausea
Yes he's working in his pajamas
Vision is blurring his brain keeps on whirring
He's still working
He needs some sleep
Working in his pajamas

He tried some cocoa, it made him giddy
This overworking isn't fair, he keeps falling from his chair
If he gets finished, he'll get to slumber
But as late as it's getting now, no time to sleep anyhow
And as his eyelids fall, his mind's about to stall
He's not done but he'll never finish
He can't take a break

And he's working in his pajamas
He's fighting off his stomach nausea
Yes he's working in his pajamas
Vision is blurring his brain keeps on whirring
He's still working
He needs some sleep

Working in his pajamas
Working in his pajamas
In his pajamas

Working in his pajamas
Caffeine nausea
Have a banana
Vision is blurring his brain keeps on whirring

His work is boring but it don't matter
Cause if he ever gets to snore, they'll be knocking on his door
He's under pressure, to get it all done
He's still impressed that they don't care, 'bout the cross he has to bear
He's ruining his mind, for bosses who aren't kind
If he could look and he had the time
'Nother job he'd find

And he's working in his pajamas
He's fighting off his stomach nausea
Yes he's working in his pajamas
Vision is blurring his brain keeps on whirring
He's still working
Don't fall asleep
Don't fall asleep
In his pajamas
In his pajamas

Working in his pajamas
In his pajamas

Goodness knows how many of my all-nighters in college could have had this as background music (with a gender change in the lyrics of course). 5-5-5.

Sounds like an insomniac to me. Hey I had dreams of working in my pajamas while staying late at work. Well, imagine that was Barry Manilow "singing in his pajamas"? He should also sing your parody as well. I give it a 555!!!
