The Lyrics

Another "Take This Job And Sing It" entry about the 'joys' of working in the RAIVS (Return And Income Verification Service) of the IRS in Fresno, CA*TDS = Transcript Delivery System, a notoriously unreliable way of getting tax return transcripts and records of accounts*Latham = a city in Georgia where W-2s are ordered for a certain 5-year block
Can you feel the RAIVS
Pressure Cooker boil
With you sealed inside

Motivating you to fill out applications
To escape the aggravation
Every RAIVS clerk wants to quit their job

TDS* is down
Seventh time today
Why you ever took

This position is impossible to fathom
While you wait 5 months for Latham*
Every RAIVS clerk wants to quit their job

There you are buying lottery tickets
Publishers Clearinghouse you hope will knock
In your work falling more behind now

'Cause just when you thought you made it
More mixed batches your hopes faded
Every RAIVS clerk wants to quit their job

(LONG INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE)

RAIVS puts the 'dys' in 'dysfunction'
Train wreck sliding towards the junction
Every RAIVS clerk wants to quit their job

Seems like you'll never, never never never catch on
Too much detail to latch on
Every RAIVS clerk wants to quit their job

With your poor evaluation
You're stuck in this situation
Every RAIVS clerk wants to quit their job
