The Lyrics

Nothing like working in the office.
Jammed up, the copier
Why why why oh why do you cause such a stir?
Jammed up, the printers, too
Why do you have to crash when I've got work to do?
Jammed up, these darned machines
You don't realize that you make me want to scream

I knew the first day I used you
My instructions confused you
So you're here and backed up with floppies
So come on and give me my copies

Jammed up, the copier
Why why why oh why do you cause such a stir?
Jammed up, the printers, too
Why do you have to crash when I've got work to do?
Jammed up, these darned machines
You don't realize that you make me want to scream

You've got a mean disposition
And that's why I'm here on a mission
I try dislodging some paper
I don't have the time for this caper

Jammed up, the copier
Why why why oh why do you cause such a stir?
Jammed up, the printers, too
Why do you have to crash when I've got work to do?

Jammed up, the copier (yeah!)
Jammed up, the copier (yeah!)
[repeat while banging your head
on your (least) favorite office machine]
Of course, "darned" may be replaced by stronger interjections.

(see this parody on AmiRight's "New Entries" page for April 7th)

Major coincidence time, Steve ... I kid you not ... our office has been dealing with a jammed printer recently ... and the song "Jam Up Jelly Tight" was going through my head a day or two ago but not in relation to our printer situation ... and then this parody appears. I love it when that kind of thing happens! 5's

Thanks, JD. It seems that Amiright was "jammed up" on 4/7.

Still waiting to see what Johnny D, or Malcolm, or any of the other freaky writers on this site can do with "Jam Up and Jelly Tight."

Mike - I think I'm only the second to parody this one here. Everyone else - You heard (or read) the man, get cracking!
