Caroline's Spine – Work Song lyrics

It's another early morning, sun came up without a warning
I never do nothing til i'm showered and clean
Got my pager, got my cuffs, a matching tie should be enough
I never leave the house without something to eat

An early riser by genetic, take the stairs cause i'm atheletic
Always at the office before anyone else
I take my faxes to be copied, grab a donut, grab some coffee
Picture a diploma sitting on my shelf

The monotony is killing me
And i try to deny this corporate labotomy

I need a siut of armor for a meeting,
Know i'm gonna take a beating,
Understaffed, and my department's in a crunch
Budget has become a hassle, boss is ripping me a new asshole
Says he wants an answer on his desk before lunch

Afternoon, things don't look better,
Phone machine is breaking records
Five hundred messages from who knows where
Staying late 'cause i'm a beginner, call my girlfriend, cancel dinner
Says she thinks i'm having an office affair

The end of day, there's no solution, face traffic and pollution
Put a smile on my face i didn't get fired
Back at home to clear my head, i grab a drink, fall into bed
Forty more years until i get to retire

The monotony is killing me
And i try to deny this corporate labotomy
