"Wage is Precarious"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Pippin's entry to the Parc an Venton parody contest.There is an extra verse in here that doesn't appear in the OS. I had to put that lest the reader be left in mid-story! The last part is where the song changes into "Let The Sunshine In" - so I gave you just a taste of that (so Corne could be thrown in again!!)
When the corne is out of Venton, Parc
And harvester, been driving hard
Rupees sup-plied, cause sadness
All up, it seems so harsh...

It is just dawning how my wage is precarious
Ain't so hilarious...
Precarious!
Precarious!

Can't they see this job's demanding?
Hay Fever and dust surrounding
Cut some corn cobs with precision
Golden bits of cell division
With this harvester vibration
Damn, this ride gives constipation...
Precarious!
Precarious!

When the corne is out of Parc, Venton
Now huge revenge, he-ll bent on
Shon-ky, the guy's a bandit
That crud would steal the stars!

It is just dawning how the boss is nefarious
Plainly nefarious
Nefarious!
Precarious!

Boss, now should be countermanding
Wimp-ily I'm just cow-towing
Kill him? 'Ppear on television...
Got some sinful indecision
Must stick dismal occupation
And get greater compensation
Precarious!
Precarious!

It is just dawning how the boss is nefarious
Plainly nefarious
Nefarious!
Precarious!
Nefarious!
Precarious!...

When the corne's out; when the corne is out, of Parc an Venton...

(repeat and fade)

(PAV contest) Good job Pip! Like the 'cell division' and 'constipation' lines the best. That and that Ethanofrenic 'postrophe!
