The Lyrics

A tribute to civil servants everywhere. Unfortunately I work around some people who are just this way. I dedicate this parody to those "workers" who are in the Miller Time Zone. Fortunately we are not all this way.
Makin' a livin' these lard butts say,
Takin's not givin' why work for pay.
Why work so and pain in hot sunshine?
Drag your behind (drag your behind),
Uncle Sam will pay your hours,
We don't work much and our union powers.
Why work so and pain in hot sunshine,
Drag your behind (drag your behind),
Drag your behind (drag your behind).
Stay my time, I'll work when I'm so inclinded,
Puttin' in nine to five, right here at the salt mine.
Drag your behind (drag your behind),
Drag your behind (drag your behind).

Showin' for work I get my credit,
Don't ask me to work 'cause I so dread it.
Why work so and pain in hot sunshine?
Drag your behind (drag your behind),
Stay my time, I'll work when I'm so inclinded,
Puttin' in nine to five, right here at the salt mine.
Drag your behind (drag your behind)
Drag your behind (drag your behind)

555, excellent, Guy. President Reagan's RIF (Reduction In Force) booted my ass out of a cushy little government job (as a graphic arts contractor) in 1982.....so I went back to school and finished my degree --- best thing ol' Ronnie Ray-Gun ever did for me!

BTW Guy, when I first saw this parody's title, before clicking on it I thought the parody would be about the family dog scratching its butt on the living room carpet!
