The Lyrics

If you play this Country Music parody backwards I promise you'll get your job back. However, I can't guarantee that you'll get your dog or truck back. So much for disclaimers.
Chorus)

Do your job, and love it
You'll be earning big rewards *
Really don't see
A cause for leavin'
I really must implore **
But, who am I to stand in your way
As your jumpin' ship once more
You can do your job and love it
Or your welcome to explore

Well, you been working for this company
For--God knows--quite some years
All this time, you've kept on workin'
Swimming in a pool of peers
And you've heard a lot of good jokes fly
You had a lot of things to say
You'd be the first I'd slap on the back
If you had the drive to stay

(Chorus)

You know you've done a spectacular job
The head boss, don't see true
He gave you a small pay cut
Lord, knows what you've been through
One of these days
Your gonna reach the top
If your Chutzpah"s, here to stay
Just you wait
For those just deserts
He'll walk up to you and say

(Alt. Chorus)
Take this car, and bonus
Your hard workin' needs reward
It's just my gift
For still believing
These things can't be ignored
I really am glad you had chose to stay
You did your job and loved it
You have shown a good report

(Repeat Chorus)

Do your job and love it (please)



* Loyalty pays in the long run
** Please stay
