The Lyrics

Another autobiographical number...
Well, I've had quite enough of your bullshit
There's just one thing left for me to do
'Cause I simply will not go on working
Working for you
You know it's plain that you're a schemer
(Do I misrepresent?)
Something needs to change
([You] need to be competent)
And it's gone downhill lately
I'm earning nowt, and burning out
And churning out the same

So here is my notice
You ain't gonna win
So take this job and stick it
...in the bin

Won't spend my life making you money
I got more things to do with my time
When the share price heads downward tomorrow
The problem ain't mine

Now I'm looking for my freedom
(Won't find it workin' here)
So I'm waving goodbye
(No need to shed a tear)
As you rabbit on, matey
Keep talking 'bout things working out
I'm walking out, anyway


So here is my notice
I'm leaving, alas
So take this job and stick it
Up your
..wo, wo, wo
Take this job and stick it (Yes - you!)
Take this job and stick it (Please do)
Take this job and stick it
Up your ...

Your supervisor's safety is not guaranteed. DKTOS but there are many supervisors who deserve to hear those words.

I've quit so many jobs, I feel I could have ghost-written this in my sleep...but probably not half as well. Great stuff.

It only takes two words to describe the combination of TOS's music and your new words to it: Quiet Riot!

Well, only another couple of weeks to go: I handed my notice in on Monday... I wonder if I should put the recording of this on the music on hold before I leave ;-)
