The Lyrics

A new 'Take This Job And Sing It' tune. Just a little venting about the frustrations that some swing shift clerks cause the day shift.
Got to my desk this morning
They should've given warning
They'd leave those candy wrappers
On top of it

It had to be some swing clerk
Those scroungy little cheap jerks
Were they born in a barn
They give me fits

Can't blame it on the day crew
Can't blame it on the Help Desk
Can't blame it on the TE's
Blame it on the swing shift (repeat 2x)

I went to print some copies
But everything was sloppy
Someone left the printer
Torn apart
Those nuts and bolts were scattered
My printing plans were shattered
I'd kick some butt if I knew
Where to start


They just won't
They just won't
They just won't control themselves (4x)


I'm working in the mailroom
If I'm not careful, we're doomed
To see our copy paper

Had pallets full of boxes
But they snuck in like foxes
There's no more day shift paper
Left in here


Day Crew
Help Desk
Swing Shift (repeat 4x)
