The Lyrics

I'm gonna raise a fuss, I'm gonna raise a holler
About Access form loadin takin up to half-an-hour
Every time I build a dbase, I should foresee this fate
My boss says, "Function son, too little too late"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the Jet Engine blues

Well my wifey she did told me, "Babe you could make extra money"
Building Access applications, you could build them on Sundays
Well Ebay didn't work, but I can sell on tek-tips
Well the Site Master said "Selling stuff we prohibit"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
Cause there ain't no cure for the Jet Engine blues

It's gonna take twelve weeks building this damn application
I'm gonna take frustrations out on Microsoft Support
Well I called up Microsoft and he said quote
"I'd like to help you son but I only speak Croate"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the Jet Engine blues

Speaking as a professional, I'd say the Jet engine is only for amateurs ;-) So, obviously, I enjoyed this one
