The Lyrics

I'd like to apologize in advance for the trite and mundane work I'd put into this parody, obviously not what you'd expect from the title.

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here.
Here I'm seated
Work's completed
When will I get off?

'Tis a ghost town
On a countdown
When will I get off?

Last I greet' the mailman
It was half past nine
Phone's been dead since five past two
And soon I'll draw the line

Is that mildew?
Clock won't tick through
When will I get off?

When I sit here deadpan
As the clock turns time
Undertakers peek in to
Assess my overtime

I'm depleted
Room's unheated
When will I get off?
When will I get off?
Tell me
When will I get off?

© Peter "I've got some vacation coming soon" Andersson.
