The Lyrics

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called Work
A nasty word Work, it means exertion and that's a mighty hard thing
But I'm here to tell ya, there's something else
Inertia!
A world of perpetual unproductivity
You don't need to see the sun, play all night
So when you call up your boss to say that you are ill
You know the drill--"Doctor said that I should take it easy last night."
Instead of asking him how much sick time is left,
Tell him that you're on extended leave, baby
'Cuz in this life, work is much harder that it has ever been
In this life, your on your own
So if your employer tries to bring you down
Get a lazy! What's forever for?

If you don't like the cube
You're workin' in
Take a look around at
All your so-called friends
You see that crazy old lady
And that ugly nerd
The Corporate Clone
And the Office Whore
Blah! Blah!--give them the bird

Are you gonna let your employer
Try to bring you down?
Tell Joe GO BLOW!
Let's get lazy
Rest our butts
Let's work with these people manana
'Til then tell them all good luck, LET'S BLOW!

Unmotivated
Just don't want to try
Maybe I'm scum
A work-phobic gadfly
To act the goof (act the goof)--
That's what I live for (what I live for)
I better run now
I hear the Work Police are banging on my door

Tell me, are you gonna let your employer bring you down?
Tell Joe GO BLOW!
Let's get lazy
Rest our butts
Work for those people manana
'Til then tell them all good luck
LET's BLOW!
C'mon baby, rest your butt!
Yeah, lazy

Are you gonna let your employer bring you down?
Tell Joe, GO BLOW!
Let's get lazy
Doctor said that I will be alright
If I stayed home all week long
Beers and cheers, my pizza guy is here
Have fun children!

I'm bumming!
I'm bumming!
I'm bumming!

I'M ON SICK DAY!!!!!

line 14----> "Get lazy. What's forever for?" I hate when I miss typos.

Had that happen before myself. 555, this would be the perfect song for Wally from the Dilbert comic series.

DK any of Prince, but creative and funny... I'm too lazy to vote, though... (kidding - 555).
BTW, instead of calling in sick, just go to work, but stay on AIR all day.... isn't that what everyone else is doing???

Thanks folks for the 5's. What's wonderful about writing this parody is that I first had the initial concept and attempted to write it when the song first came out...sometime around 1983! Time and maturity has helped immensely.

Well, I just found out that while my job is safe, a good half dozen really good people cannot say the same. I hope you don't mind if I forward this to them, we can all use a laugh. 555

I forgot all about that long intro, but your version brought it (and the song) right back to me - nice job, Agri - 555

Perfect parody for this song.

I had forgotten about the intro as well. I'm glad you didn't. You nailed this man! Not only did you capture my feelings about work right now but this is funny too. You might have your SOTM entry here if you can find an MP3 for those who haven't heard it. High 5s.

(ABC-L) Fantastic! I hope the Work Police don't nail me for my endless procrastination anytime soon! A great match to the OS, although it made me dance in my seat rather un-lazily!

No slacking vote for you! 555

(ABC3L) If I had to make a top 20 all-time AmIRight favorites list, this would definitely be included. Loving it even more this time around since it happens I called out today! (now, where did I put the cold medicine?)

(ABC) What Stephen Harrington said ... plus ...

GOLD-BRICKER! (waah-WAAH-waah!)
He's the man
The man who's a clev-er jerk
He'll nev-er WORK!

Such a
GOLD-BRICKER! (waah-WAAH-waah!)
Beckons you,
To enter his cube of slack --
And then kick-back!

Golden words he will pour with no fear
In the pointy-haired manager's ear
And a golden girl,
Knows what he's gnoshing,
From his lack of breath-mouth-washing!
GOLD-BRICKER! (waah-WAAH-waah!)
