The Lyrics

An ode to an emotionally (as well as vertically) challenged supervisor. The latest "Take This Job and Sing It" addition
Short bosses got--no reason
Short bosses got--no reason
Short bosses got--no reason to rule

They won't--give their staff--any breaks
They snoop around looking for mistakes
They will--make your workday a total living hell
Always--spoil your fun, try to set you up to fail
Well, I

Don't want no short bosses
Don't want no short bosses
Don't want no short bosses 'round here

Short bosses mean needless pain for you and I
(A clerk such as I)

This is their motto until the day they die:
"Office politics rules!"

Short bosses got--no really
Short bosses got--no really
Short bosses got--no really close friends

They got--chips upon their shoulders inches thick
They're full of--plans and schemes, lots of dirty tricks
They won't--give their underlings any slack
They need--no excuse to stab you in the back
They got--lying tongues to go with their petty minds
They'll try to screw you--every time
Well, I

Don't want no short bosses
Don't want no short bosses
Don't want no short bosses 'round here
