Parody Song Title:

"Take My Job Away"

Parody Written by:

Bob Emmet/Project Sisyphus

The Lyrics

Truly, an anthem for our times.
Watching all the want ads, padding out my resume
Wishin’ I had got that discount online MBA
Rumor mill is turning, labor’s cheaper in Norway
Lawyers filing motions, hoping they can find some way (to)

Take my job away...

(I’m) such a workaholic—how could they send my job offshore?
Always in by ten, sometimes I stayed as late as four
Except for four-day weekends and random ethnic holidays
Now some dude named “Gunnar” got my manager to say:

Take my job away...

Umlaut-guy won’t have my knowledge
of YouTube video
Or my B.S. from that classy college
where they filmed “Don’t Tase Me, Bro”
And I taught the CEO
Super Mario™

Take my job away...

Security escorts me out so I don’t make a scene
Stuffed my clothes with pens, some post-its and a fax machine
Ate up all the donuts, sued for months of severance pay
Prayin’ I get sick, ‘cause medical’s on them ‘till May

Take my job away
Take my job away...

Waste some company time: visit the underemployed slackers at Project Sisyphus.

I was going to leave a comment, but seeing as I'm at work and don't want to be caught slacking, I won't

D'Oh! Too late
