The Lyrics

On a day that I was very annoyed at my superior, I happened upon your site. It gave me the idea to try my hand at it and believe me, I found it a very satisfying experience.
Once I was afraid,
I was petrified.
Kept thinking you're kin with the boss
and you can get me fired.
I thought you knew what you were doing
Knew the business through and through
but I was new
And I learned you don't have a clue

And now I know, you are a fool
Your only skill's to get the rest of us
to do your work for you,
If only you showed gratitude
to us, for handling all your calls,
But you would rather put us down
and take the credit for it all.

One day I'll go
Walk out the door
Won't turn around now
Cause I can't stand you anymore,
Weren't you the one
Who constantly just criticized
D'you think I'd crumble
D'you think I'd lay down and cry
Oh no not I

I will survive
Oh, as long as I know my own worth
I know I'll be alright
I've got all my life to live
without a doubt I will not give
You the pride
To see me cry

Hey, hey

It took all the strength I had
Not to jump at you
For complaining every chance
That my work wouldn't do
And I spent oh so many days
Feeling sick just at your sight
I used to sigh
But now I hold my head up high

And you see me
Somebody new
I'm not the same person
who once applied to work for you
I should've never seen the ad
I should've thrown out my CV
Had I known for just one second
Just how lazy you would be

One day I'll go
Walk out the door
Won't turn around now
Cause I can't stand you anymore
Weren't you the one
Who kept on bragging, when in fact
If it wasn't for your uncle
You'd be making a Big Mac

But I am strong, I will survive
Oh as long as I know my own worth
I know I'll be alright
Got my life in front of me
One day I'll laugh, wait and see
Cause you'll be
Far away from me

Hey, hey
