The Lyrics

I am overworked
Got to meet the deadline, I am so damn knackered
As the boss is strict, yet he is so thick
calls to watch the work switchboard
And all the work meetings.

I detest working overtime
Can't you see I have no free time?
'Cos im working hard
The manager's a fool

Should have known better than to laze around
The promotion that I have wasted
So I will never work overtime
I work so bloody hard

Tea break gone so fast
The dinner hour with a sandwich
To the 9 to 5
I should never skive
Theres no comfort in this chair
Pain is my nagging wife

I detest working overtime
Can't you see I have no free time?
'Cos im working hard
The manager's a fool

Should have known better than to laze around
The promotion that I have wasted
So I will never work overtime
I work so bloody hard

Never without this job

Tonight im stuck in this meeting
I've had enough of this seating
Money, accounting is tough
I'm just going out for a quick light up

I could have been so out of work
I could have missed out of the perks
But work is piling up,
Please help.


I detest working overtime
Can't you see I have no free time?
'Cos im working hard
The manager's a fool

Should have known better than to laze around
The promotion that I have wasted
So I will never work overtime
I work so bloody hard

This is utterly brilliant, and obviously written by someone who loathes overtime as much as I do.

I echo LBGGD's comment.
