Let me tell you all a story 'bout "my friend" (it's me),
a hard-working man tryin' to feed the family.
Until, one day, I was called in by the boss;
he said "I'm sorry, son, but we've got to cut costs."
(RIF, that is. You're history.)
The next thing you know, "our friend" is out of work.
My friends all said, "Don't be acting like a jerk."
They said, "The Unemployment Line's the place you need to be."
So I looked up the address and I went to EDD.
(Unemployment office. Would-be stars and Dot.Com Millionaires.)
Well now it's time to say goodbye to you and all my friends,
And I'd like to thank you folks for letting me drop in.
I'll see you all around the San Jose locality
'cause we all know how small it is, the Silicon Valley.
(Computer biz, that is! Code a spell, take your shoes off. I'll be back, y'hear.)
