The Lyrics

I've never worked in a gas station before but I did work the graveyard shift at a Taco Bell before and it SUCKED...
Up late at this gas station
Cause I need green, My wallet's light
2:30... And I'm closing my eyes
But I leave here at 9

This job blows, I'm going insane
Cause now I wish... I wish I could sleep
I'd bitch and whine but rent's not free
It might be lame but it's money

Graveyard Shift... Here to the break of dawn
Miss my pillow but zippos these freaks want
Graveyard Shift... You'll see me blink and yawn
Fill your Pinto... Your windows I will wash

I'm so grog-gy and tired
But I'll earn a buck or two
These sideshow freaks are my lone buyers
The rest aren't awake (Ohhh they snooze)

Folks are crazy and super high
Ask for cheese-burgers and fries
Stoners don't know it's Texaco (No)
So bored but I'll boot out weirdos

Graveyard shift... The hours seem so long
It takes gusto to make dough at this job
Graveyard shift... Customers smoked the bong
Sell tobacco and nachoes to these slobs

Espresso helps to keep me awake
I'll drain cups dry so I won't sway
That coffee flows and it won't slow (No)
So bored but now my eyes won't close

Graveyard Shift... Stay up to clean the john
I've got ammo so psychos best step off
Graveyard Shift... Need sugar munch bonbons
Time moves so slow and it blows, I must scoff
Graveyard Shift... Employment's such a con
Win the lotto and you know I'll be gone
Graveyard Shift... On this counter I've drawn
I'm no Van Gough, Work's dull though and it sucks

Stereo is cranked up
Stamnia's in the dumps
Potato chips I'll munch
The cash flow's what I want

Graveyard shift
Makes me miffed
Crock of sh*t
Graveyard shift
Yes, It bites
Graveyard shift
Graveyard shift

I read the title sub and thought "that will never work on that song" - but not only was I wrong on that, you've managed a theme from start to finish that matches the tone of the song better than the original. :-)

(ABC) And this is why I plan to never take the night shift. Great stuff here, worth a pay rise of $555!

I found the title sub weird, too, as Peter says above, but it worked with the consistent tone.

I was a little weary at first too, but you managed to make it work! I love the original song, and you did a good job throughout the whole thing.
