The Lyrics

My job's going nowhere... so's my pay
And my employer has me workin' every day
And what do I get for bein' a slave?
FIVE BUCKS AN HOUR!
That's only pocket change...

Even though I know
Business has been slow
So has my cash flow
I need more dough!

Despite all my rage I am still making minimum wage!
Despite all my rage I am still making minimum wage!
And my boss will say what is my loss is always his gain!
Despite all my rage I am still making minimum wage!

Now they paid me... only two days ago
And now it's all gone! Nothin' left to show
And what do I want? I want a raise!
But what do I get?
A decrease in pay....

All my money's spent
I got no benefits
But I must pay rent
So I can't quit !!!!!

Despite all my rage I am still making minimum wage!
Despite all my rage I am still making minimum wage!
And my Uncle Sam's wanting more than I'll ever make!
Despite all my rage I am still making minimum WAGE!

Tell me now this can't be true
What am I supposed to do?
Tell me now this can't be true, yeah
I'm about to come unglued!
Tell me now what can I do oh yeahhhhhhh....

Despite all my rage I am still making minimum wage!
Despite all my rage I am still making minimum wage!
And my boss will say what is my loss is always his gain!
Despite all my rage I am still making minimum WAGE!

Despite all my rage I am still making minimum
Despite all my rage I am still making minimum
Despite all my rage I am still making minimum wage!

Tell me now this can't be true
I feel like I'm getting screwed
Now my phone bill's three months overdue!

And I still believe that I must have a raise!
And I still believe that I must have a raise!
Yeah I still believe that I must have a raise!
I still believe that I must have a raise!

555, while I make more than minimum wage,(around 9.85 an hour now), my hours have been cut to where I'm making less than 180.00 a week, I used to make more than that when my hourly wages were lower! This parody was easy for me to understand.

Bob Rivers did a parody like this one, you changed the lyrics around, so you're safe... but be careful... still your's is pretty funny...

Never heard of the Bob Rivers version! *blushes* Thanks for inadvertently putting me in that category! Now to only get paid like Mr. Rivers... sigh.... FYI, I NEVER plagerize (if that's how it's spelled) and never will, this I promise! So I guess great minds DO think alike! Ok, defense rests... thanks for all your kind words *now visit my website* ~~~~Subliminal waves~~~~~
