The Lyrics

At my work I hear from too many chiefs
I get ordered around… just imagine my grief
I’m like the low man on the Totem Pole
A ‘go fer’ that feels… like a little mole

Everybody wants to bust some chops
Everybody wants to work their jaws
Bark out your orders like you’re special-ops
Everybody wants to be ‘The Boss’

I’m the nerd with the ma-il cart
A dead end job I know I’ll never quit
I hate what it pays I’m such a re-etard
Can’t even take charge of my face’s zits

Everybody wants to be in charge
Everybody has a ring to toss
Daddy ‘War Bucks’ have your chest enlarged
Everybody wants to be ‘The Boss’

Who’s the first to always second guess?
Who’s the one who does the talking to?
Who gives a crap about what the V.P. says?
Do you care to share you’re point of view?

Repeat Chorus 3 – 4 times to fade

Everybody wants to share their thoughts
Everybody wants to state their cause
You ever wonder who’s calling the shots?
Everybody wants to be ‘The Boss’
