The Lyrics

this was inspired by the Enron scandal and the continuing corporate corruption in the world... this song has three parts... the first is from the perspective of a worker, the second is of an investor, and the third is of an executive.... Sun refers to Sun Microsystems
[worker perspective]

She knows the check is on delay
But she feels they better have her pay
The more you make, the more they steal
They sell ESCROW, so you won't take leave
The more they have, the more they'll take away

(Chorus)
You gotta quit it today
Don't buy those 401k's
You gotta quit it today
Quit it today
You gotta quit it today
Don't buy those 401k's

Well, she don't care what it's worth
She knows for her it's the last day at work
The last day at work

[investor perspective]

She's been waiting for a real dividend
She saw the world stop with news of Enron
And the Sun*, Sun, here it comes
She's not paying for corporate fun

(Chorus)

Well, she knows now what it's worth
She knows for her that the stock pay won't work
The stock pay won't work

Stealing our pay
Snip, slice
Too many
Getting away
The oil burns
And things get fuzzy
See it today?

[executive perspective]

She's leaving
Leaving next week now
She knows they're gonna pay her back somehow
She'll have to go to court in a week
With all this gloom
Now she weeps

They're gonna get her today
Because she led them astray
They're gonna get her today
Because she led them astray
You know that crime doesn't pay

They will find out where it hurts
She'll probably end up six feet in dirt
Just six feet in dirt
Six feet in dirt
Six feet
