"Give Me One Reason To Work Here"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This was inspired by an outburst from one of my co-workers this morning.
Give me one reason to work here, and I will sit right at my desk.
Give me one reason to work here, and I will sit right at my desk.
I no longer understand the work here,
And I cannot stand this test!

Give me one reason to shut up, and the computer will go on!
Give me one reason to shut up, and the computer will go on!
My co-worker did not tell me the password,
She is such a damn moron!

GIVE ME ONE REASON TO CALM DOWN, AND I WILL HAVE TO SPEAK TO YOU!
GIVE ME ONE REASON TO CALM DOWN, AND I WILL HAVE TO SPEAK TO YOU!
People here don't tell me nothing,
I think I must go back to school.

(Instrumental break then repeat the first verse until the end of the song).

Oprah once wrote an article that included "5 Questions to Answer Before You Quit Your Job." I can't remember the other four, but one was, "How much would your pay have to increase for you to stay? If your salary were doubled, and you still think you would hate your job, you should quit." I read that, and said, "Oprah must've worked at Sears at one point."
