The Lyrics

I had an assignment in my eigth grade english class and i thought i should post it .
here comes johnny late again
with coffee ina mug
and a fax machine
hes gonna skip lunch so he can please

hey man why you on commission
ive been working since seven
got alota papers to shove
to many papers to shove
this new file's for mr jenkins

well im just an average guy
five dollars an hour just like before
i have to work for life
i gotta work for life

do you know where that other guy is
with my micro film
call my CEO

on the company phone

still dont know where that guy is
for all i know he could be in bangkok
hes probly on a plane
my boss is goin insane
with coffee ina mug

Speaking as a Decade Police Officer, This song is from 1977. Speaking as myself, I loved the concept of this parody. I'm so glad my Iggy Pop Trilogy has inspired others to do Iggy Pop parodies. 5-5-5.
