The Lyrics

Donald Trump will appreciate this one about as much as he appreciates Rosie O'Donnell.
This one goes out through the board room door
This one goes out and the door hits his behind
A simple flop who's out in record time
This one goes out through the exit door

Fired!
Fired!

This one goes out through the other door
This one goes out to the minimum wage he'll find
A menial job should occupy his kind
This one goes out through the the service door

Fired!
Fired!


This one goes out through the basement door
This one goes out to screw up his life, not mine
Another job should suit this fool just fine
This one goes out to the maint'nance door

Fired!
Fired!
Fired!
Fired!

That was great! It doesn't even need the "Apprentice" reference.

"Fired" sounds better than the original lyric====is it "fire?" And it makes better sense, even in the context of the original song! Which only has one, stupid, annoying verse, right? Thanks for the improvement! You're hired!
