Tied For Last – Achiever lyrics

If you don't do nothing than you won't do nothing badly

I hear your new boyfriend
He's a real go-getter
Setting goals for himself
Then he attains those goals
Yeah he's got himself on the fast-track
To be a kickass yes-man corporate hack
But I don't see what you see in him at all

I hear he's thinking outside the box
(All I was thinking was how I was getting in yours)
Moving ahead by working smart and not hard
('Cause he's real proactive)
But now you say that I'm no match
For your kiss-ass tax-cheat corporate hack
I still don't see what you see in him at all

I'm NO ACHIEVER
I THOUGHT YOU LIKED ME THAT WAY
'CAUSE IF I DON'T DO NOTHING
THEN I WON'T DO NOTHING BADLY

We used to call in sick, get up past noon
Wasting the day away watching cartoons
Now you're up at six for your daily run
Your workday's half-over before mine's begun
And that don't sound like any fun
At all

I'm NO ACHIEVER
YOU USED TO LIKE ME THAT WAY
'CAUSE IF I DON'T DO NOTHING
THEN I WON'T DO NOTHING BADLY

I hear your ex-husband
Was a real go-getter
You were once his prize
But he shelved you and moved on
Now he's got himself on the fast-track
For a new trophy bride and a heart attack
I never saw what you saw in him at all

I'm NO ACHIEVER
I KIND OF LIKE IT THAT WAY
'CAUSE IF I DON'T DO NOTHING
THEN I WON'T DO NOTHING BADLY

If you don't do nothing then you won't do nothing badly
If you don't do nothing then you won't do nothing badly
