"You've Got To Seek Approval"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Today I got my final check
I failed to get approval
For some garden shelving removal
So they asked me “How much do you recollect?”
So I told them kinda truthful
There went my neck
Now I sing…


Ain’t nothin’ worth risking your job
Nobody’s gonna hire me now, oh no!
You’ve got to seek approval
Might hafta go and join ‘the mob’
Zoot suitin’ as I mow ‘em down, oh no!
That would not meet approval


Burried a hatchet in my neck so long
I can be such a dufus
Killing all chance for hubris
They smiled at me and they said you’re gone
And that’s the reason you’re reading this song
Now you sing…


Ain’t nothin’ gonna save your hide
Nobody gonna hire you clown, honk, honk!
Your ass will meet refusal
There’s nothin’ that’s left of your pride
Stay humble as you root the ground, oink, oink!
You did not seek approval


Always get a supervisor to
Look things over
Always get a manager to
Check it closer
If I get another job to do
I will check in
Never want another boss man to
Have to say.. Go!


Ain’t no one here to hear me gripe
Nobody wants to hear my pouts, boo hoo!
I wish I could be coddled
I need to give my ass a wipe
I’m fired and I’ve been put out, Shoo, Shoo!
I did not seek approval

Something like this happened to me & Mr. ~ B V D ~ They wanted to site Sexual Harassment . . . but it was more of a case of "What her ass meant" . . . . as the 'heat' was on, and we knocked the shelving down, one by one it continued . . . thank god there were no security cameras in the Hardward Lab ! Although Hardsfield, VP, said all the parts were all insured, Personnel guessed that 'something' was going on back there . . .
