The Lyrics

02 listings are computer generated lists of tax accounts that come in tall stacks, to the mailroom in my IRS building. I did not know at first that the secretaries, not the mail clerks, are supposed to break them down and distribute them, and got lots of complaints for getting them to the other clerks late. Bill is the head of the mailroom. Another 'Take This Job And Sing It' entry.
MUSIC: HARD ROCK BRIDGE

You just got put back in the mailroom again
An 02 stack came with the morning cage in
Don't break it down
No, no, no, no, no (oo woo hoo)
That's what on each floor
The secretaries are for
Don't break it down

Don't break it down, that's making too much work
Co-workers will be saying you're a jerk
Don't break it down
No, no, no, no, no (oo woo hoo)

That's what on each floor
The secretaries are for
Don't break it down

Don't break it down, clerks (3x)
Don't break it down

They criticize you every time because
You don't distribute 02s like Bill does
Don't break them down
No, no, no, no, no (oo woo hoo)

That's what on each floor
The secretaries are for
Don't break them down

Don't break them down, clerks (3x)
Don't break them down

No 02 stack need ever cause you fright
Bill has one simple rule to get it right
Don't break it down
No, no, no, no, no (oo woo hoo)

That's what on each floor
The secretaries are for
Don't break it down

Don't break it down, clerks (3x)
Don't break it down

The other clerks who like to quibble and quail
Should have to take their turns and do the mail
Don't break it down
No, no, no, no, no (oo woo hoo)

That's what on each floor
The secretaries are for
Don't break it down

MUSIC: HARD ROCK BRIDGE

Let's write some new instructions for the 02s
With every detail and big rule for reviews
Don't break it down
No, no, no, no, no (oo woo hoo)

That's what on each floor
The secretaries are for
Don't break it down (3x)
