The Lyrics

I work at McDs and so I was bored.
The fries are done, just like every day.
Patties on the grill, and they're looking okay.
Man, I hate this job, got bills to pay.
I'd rather die than work out this way.
Now there is someone in the drive-thru, the speaker says out loud,
Would you like to valuesize your fries?.
It costs a dollar more if you do."

The Big Mac's on floor and the fries are old,
Filets are rotten and covered with mold.
The nuggets are smelling bad, I don't care though,
Cause I'm almost halfway home.
And I'll be out of this hell hole.

The counter's dirty, and the drinks are stale.
You take a big drink and you will turn pale.
The bathroom's the cleanest in this friggin' place,
The chicken's caked with grease, but hey that's okay.
You take a bite of your Chicken Select and,
Say, "I'm gonna puke all this crap.
You know I'm gonna puke up all this."

The Big Mac's on floor and the fries are old,
Filets are rotten and covered with mold.
The nuggets are smelling bad, I don't care though,
Cause I'm almost halfway home.
And I'll be out of this hell hole.

Well, I went to Arby's just the other day,
The food was great, I just had to say,
Man this food's the best I've had in a while,
And the cashier laughed as he said with a smile.
We never really wash our hands when we use the restroom,
Helps the taste, it's so addicting."

The Big Mac's on floor and the fries are old,
Filets are rotten and covered with mold.
The nuggets are smelling bad, I don't care though,
Cause I'm almost halfway home.
And I'll be out of this hell hole.

I've had crappy food from here to Bombay,
But there's one place that makes me so afraid.
It's got a cheesy clown with a cheesy smile.
He spends his time with kids like a pedophile.
He preys on little children, and they sit on his lap,
We'll be seeing a nice lawsuit, yeah.
When will we see a big lawsuit?
But I still go to eat, it's occurred to me,
This food is addicting.
This crap is addicting.

The Big Mac's on floor and the fries are old,
Filets are rotten and covered with mold.
The nuggets are smelling bad, I don't care though,
Cause I'm almost halfway home.
And I'll be out of this hell hole.
