The Lyrics

Another parody for my "return to Amiright" day...a tribute to the paranoid lab rats that fill our cities' offices
I used to be a nine-to-fiver; now I'm a wage slave
At night I don't bother undressing; a week since I've shaved
I've sold my soul to the corporation; and they won't give it back
So I don't get coffee, a cig break or mid-morning snack

I'm workin' thru lunchtime..whoa!
This jerk gets no munch-timewhoa!
I'm workin' thru lunchtimewhoa!
It's for my own good!!

Heythis bites now
It's for my own good!
Whoa yeah

Hey, boss-man; please don't unemploy me- I'm loyal to you
And I won't even sleep with my wife if you don't want me to
All those schlumps that like to go home on weekends; they shouldn't be paid (no no no)
Though I'm eyeing that sandwich and soda; won't touch coz I'm 'fraid

I'm workin' thru lunchtime..whoa!
This jerk gets no munch-timewhoa!
I'm workin' thru lunchtimewhoa!
It's for my own good!!

Heythis bites now
It's for my own good!
Hey yeah, no fair!!
It's for my own good!!

Workin' through lunchtime
Just like a coalmine

I'll make a call, I'll file a file, write that report without a meal
I'll send a fax, I'll do your tax, I won't relax; hey, that's the deal

There's no downtimecrazyjob!
There's no downtimecrazyjob!

I'm workin' thru lunchtime..whoa!
This jerk gets no munch-timewhoa!
I'm workin' thru lunchtimewhoa!
It's for my own good!
I stayed until 10, now
Boss knew that I would

When Super-Parodist Kristof Robertson from The Planet Quipped-On is hiding in his secret identity, he works as mild-mannered Drew Carey!

Been there, lived that; when I read this, I couldn't help thinking of Stan Rogers' "White Collar Holler"...!

I've had jobs like this, fortunately my current company is more fun. Enjoyed this!

Hey hec, my wife and I used to go see Stan Rogers at Passim in Harvard Square a million years ago ... love "White Collar Holler" !!

Often times I've had to work during the times I normally take lunch breaks too. You nailed this one; here's a 5-5-5 vote for ya. ;)

Here's your well deserved affimation. 5's

whoa, my fellow wombat returns from God Knows Where, and his cynicism is happily intact - you must remember though Kristof, that with your last breath you'll be able to happily say "I dedicated my entire waking life to workin for the man" - 555

Really brilliant stuff, 5-5-5

:-) Don't tell me, that's just what the boss thinks: you're actually writing parodies without him knowing...

(ABC3) Do you ever poop on the job?
jason - April 26, 2007 - Report this comment
Poomaster, shut up. This parody has nothing to do with going to the bathroom, so stop poking your nose where it doesn't belong.
Agrimorfee - April 30, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC3) Jason, Poomaster is only following the rule that one has to comment SOMETHING in order to vote. Granted, he could discuss some other subject, but eh well. In the meantime, Kristof, nice job on the parody.
Johnny D - May 05, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC) See above!

Unfortunately, in many companies this is almost too close to reality to be funny. As for the Jason-Poomaster debate, I guess you could say the boss is full of poo and leave it at that.

(ABC3-W) Great title sub and execution. 555
Red Ant - May 08, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC3-W) Jeez, this is really the wrong time for me to read this parody since I wound up working through my dinner break today along with putting up with other BS (painting in the dark, anyone?). Sorry, mate, I can't vote this one right now, but great meter and rhyming as always.

ABC - NOT THRU LUNCHTIME! Lunchtime is the best time... I think someone needs a hug. 5-5-5
stuart mcarthur - May 09, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC) see above - yeah, where WERE you all that time, Kristof - workin through puntime? - fave line here: I'll send a fax, I'll do your tax, I won't relax; hey, that's the deal - beautiful
Matthias - May 09, 2007 - Report this comment
Stuart's favorite line was also mine, that was purely brilliant! And I think this parody fit the picture you supplied for it very accurately.

(ABC) I admit it...I really can't sympathize since they don't deprive us of lunch at school, though we do only get a half an hour...okay, you win. Great job.
Mikey Squirrel - May 09, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC) I can relate, having worked through many a lunchtime. Of course, I usually snack throughout the day to compensate. Good job!
