The Lyrics

Well, working at the library's kinda laid back
Ain't much in the stacks that I can't hack
Weeding books on the floor til my knees gonna crack
Thank God it's a casual day.

A bookish kind-a life is great, I confess
Helpin' all the patrons, workin' on the desk
Chasin' off the flashers, cleanin' up the mess
Thank God it's a casual day.

Well, I've got me a fine job, when I can stay awake
Three cups of coffee gonna give me the shakes
But getting' up early, well thems are the breaks
Thank God it's a casual day.

When the work's all done and our day is complete
We punch out the clock and we're off to the street
To scrape off our cars in the snow and the sleet
Thank God it's a casual Day.

I'd read a good book all day if I could
But the boss and the board wouldn't take it very good
So I wear blue jeans and I work when I should
Thank God it's a casual day.

Well, I've got me a fine job, when I can stay awake
Three cups of coffee gonna give me the shakes
But getting' up early, well thems are the breaks
Thank God it's a casual day.

I wouldn't trade my life for diamonds or jewels
Cause then I'd have to follow those dress code rules
Them high-heeled pumps, they're for hussies or for fools
Thank God it's a casual day.

Yeah, all the rich people in their SUVs
Dressed to the nines all wishing they were me
Trade me a cell phone for my comfy old tee
Thank God it's a casual day.

Well, I'll work at the library till the day I retire
Unless I quit or unless I'm fired
Service with a smile in my comfy attire
Thank God it's a casual day.

Well, I've got me a fine job, when I can stay awake
Three cups of coffee gonna give me the shakes
But getting' up early, well thems are the breaks
Thank God it's a casual day.

I like it! I admit I'm a sucker for catchy, singable OS's and I can hear this just fly off John Denver's lips like butter... well, if he were still 'flying' that is...

I just noticed... you have SIX parodies today! Your line about being hyped up by too much coffee seems to be brutally grounded in reality! In honor of your assention to the Pantheons of the Prolific: ~ SuperCaligraphicAislingParodocalMania! Other ones who wrote as much were certified insane, yeah! After half a dozen writes the carpal tunnel pains ya! SuperCaligraphicAisling-Am-I-Writer-Mania!
