The Lyrics

The Office Song
Run errands all Tuesday through
Wednesday's same, and Thursday too
Friday, I will lick your boots
But Mondays, I take off

Tuesday, I will buy cigars
Wednesday, all day, clean your car
Thursday, you will be a star
But Mondays, I take off

Saturday? Paint
On Sunday I've got a blind date
And Monday damn the fishing's great

I will make your coffee black
Tuesday I will send your fax
Wednesday, I will do your tax
But Monday, I take off

(Solo break around the water cooler)

Tuesday, I will bake you bread
Thursday, old forms, I shall shred
On Friday, I'll go buy your meds
But Monday, I take off

Saturday, Skate
On Sunday, a doll I'll inflate
Then Monday, her and me shall mate

Go golf with the guys
It's a wonderful disguise
To call in sick and aunt demised
Going out on the town
And play a few rounds
Week I'm a geek
Sitting down and down
But there's always one night
With the WWF fight
Then to go drink and loose your sight
I can never get enough
"Office?" I scoff
It's Monday
I take off

I'll take care of what you tell me to
I'll even spit shine your shoes
Monday, I don't care about you
Cause Monday, I take off

Tuesday, I will call you smart
Wednesday, Bring mom's famous tarts
Thursday, I'll tear out my heart
But Monday, I take off!!!


(Random office sounds
Stapler, Copy Machine, Coffee Brewing
Donald Trump yelling, "You're Fired")

Hi, Matthias! I noticed another duplicate submission; do you want us to comment on this one, or

This one, apparently. The other has a message from him, telling us not to vote on it. ^_^ It's great. I DKTOS half as much as I'd like to, though.

Clever...and from a Cure song I know, too! A fun parody for a fun song.

The days-of-the-week concept applies well to a song about the office. My favorite line is "Thursday, old forms, I shall shred." (The solo break around the water cooler was a nice touch!)

Wow, this little charmer is 7 years old. I think you would do it differently now if you had started today, Matthias, with experience under your

(ABC) Wow! Going way back in your arsenal to grab this one. I liked it. It's a solid parody and the days thing worked really well with the topic.

(ABC) Well, this was a great little parody, simple but satisfying. I wish I had Mondays off, I...wait, seven years old? Wow, I guess you've always been awesome, then. 555!

Not a huge Cure fan, but I liked the WWF (now WWE) inclusion, and the pacing was spot on. Nice work!
