The Lyrics

A companion seasonal government worker lament to "Work Me, Bounce Me".
Once again, it's time to go
They just put me back on furlough
Now I'm unemployed
My plans destroyed
For other work I must go

I called the E.D.D.
They just played with me
In a tone of scorn
Said I needed a form
That I never before was asked for

Just want to start my claim
Who's to blame
For this new hassle
Bent out of shape
With more red tape
I now am forced to wrestle

At my work, once more
I have been shown the door
Furloughed again, naturally

It seems that only yesterday
Really thought I had it made
Being put into
The Retirement Crew
They told me it was steady pay

But as if to knock me down
Some managers came around
And without so much
As a little touch
Cut my plans in little pieces

Leaving me to doubt
Talk about a permanent job
Oh, if it really does exist
Why does it elude me?

In financial need
I'm nonetheless indeed
Furloughed again, naturally

It seems to me that there is more work
Than they let on in upper management
Now who will manage it?
What will they do?
What will they do?


Furloughed again, naturally

Looking back over the years
I may never be perm, I fear
Though I've often applied
All my chances died
Office politics leaves me here

And at forty plus years old
I'm still nowhere near my goals
A dynamic life
My own house and wife
The career of my dreams that's soaring

No, instead I'm stuck
In a seasonal job that's boring
This situation's like a Chinese
Water Torture pouring

Will it pass away?
Or will I still lose pay?

Furloughed again, naturally
Furloughed again, naturally
