The Lyrics

I've seen a lot of construction sites, and the workers.
Just yesterday morning I drove my truck to the site
The building plans they made weren't up to code
I called in my crew and tried to fix what was wrong
The fuses I ordered couldn't take the load

I've got wirin' on my brain
Got a bunch of dolts who can't hook up a phone
Got some lazy slobs who all day just piss and moan
There are days I hate being an electrician

Please don't look at this mess, inspector
We're gonna hide it in the wall
I just need your eyes to turn the other way
Well fix that lighting so you'll see down the hall
But some klutz will break it just like yesterday

Oh, I've got wirin' on my brain
Got a bunch of volts with no better place to go
Got some conduit and some fuses that just blow
There are days I hate being an electrician

I've been taking my mind right to quittin' time
My lips turned towards a beer
Coors light when it's topless night
Will just turn my head around
Gotta finish that tract, ' fore the plumbers come back
And start making water run
Live wires can cause real fires
Since we forgot the ground

I've got wirin' on my brain
Got a bunch of dolts who can't hook up a phone
Got some lazy slobs who all day just piss and moan
There are days I hate being an electrician

Thought we'd screwed up one more time again
There's just a few things I forgot to have them do
Thought we'd screwed up, thought we'd screwed up
Wirin' brain, now

I was just wondering. Is 1970 the last year of the sixties or the first year of the seventies?

Wire you writin' this stuff? Nice job Rick.

Do you work with electricity, Rick? If so, you and I have an electricity-synchronicity - I've been a federally-licensed amateur radio operator since 1974, and I've grounded my share of capacitors, if you know what I mean. 555 watts for this joule of a parody.

Yes, Johnnie. An old line of mine is "I work with fifty volts, in a company of dolts", referring to Pac Bell. (I don't work for them now)See my parody of "Michelle".

It's good, and I'm lovin' the 'we forgot the ground' line. But 'phone' and 'elecrician' just ain't mixing well for me. There are some other pacing issues but that's the only recurring one.

Yeah, I didn't want to point it our up front, but you have to say "being" as one syllable for it to work.
