The Lyrics

The latest "Take This Job And Sing It" entry. A commentary on the personal impact of the Bush Administration's mania for privatizing government services
I woke up feeling so down
Today I'm being laid off
They called another meeting
But their line is getting old now

Said we're not cost effective
Our best work is no good
In government employment
There is no more enjoyment

Dubya can't wait to get rid of us
Set up the next Job Fair
What can I say
Uncle Sam will tell us today
"Thank you for your hard work, folks--
Now go away!"
Just got kicked in the pants again
We're being outsourced

Someone let the clerks go
They'll show you where the door is
Your badge and job are history
At EDD you're sitting
"How will my bills get paid now?
Fast food jobs?" you're thinking
Can things get any lower
Bank account is shrinking

Dubya can't wait to get rid of us
Set up the next Job Fair
What can I say
IRS will tell us today
"Thank you for your hard work, folks--
Now go away!"
We're being outsourced! Outsourced! Outsourced!
