For all those blue-collar folk who spend every waking moment perpetually despising their hum-drum day jobs. You know the kind I mean -- the kind that make you count how many times you've blinked, but lose track at one hundred eighty-two...


I hate my job, it's so completely lame
I spend all day just listening to customers complain
They bring their stupid broken phones to me
They dropped it off the Chrysler Building with no warranty, well golly gee

I hate my job, the customers are dumb
They'll throw their broken phone away and expect another one
We can't exchange something that isn't there
But I explain it once again while ripping out my hair

They just can't see
What this job is doing to me!

I'm giving up retail
My job is full of fail
My soul is not for sale
Not even for ten bucks
That I'm paid by the hour
While customers grow sour
Feel dirty, need a shower
Man, my job really sucks

I hate my job, I'm knocking on your door
I travel up and down the street just like some kind of whore
But I'm not selling sex, just cable TV
That you already got rid of, so you close your door on me

So I knock and knock
But I can't make sales if you don't open up!

So I never make a sale
My job is full of fail
Walk through the rain and hail
Just for a couple bucks
And I'll never reach my goal
Unless I get on a roll
or maybe sell my soul
Man, my job really sucks

My new job
It's not great
I collect money from folks down on their luck
But at least
I have a job
in this economy, I guess my job doesn't suck
