hey man, sorry i'm late
but ain't this weather something special
i can hardly wait
till i'm out here getting paid

but enough of all the pleasantries
let's proceed with this formality
we both have better things to do
than excessive interviews

'cause i look so good on paper
that it doesn't even matter

i work best behind the desk
with a handle in each drawer
to consult between each chore
as to mitigate the inquiry
of what this busyness is for

but you don't need to be concerned
i wet my whistle while i work
'cause i look so good on paper
that it doesn't even matter
anyhow i treat my liver


so i'd suggest
you make an offer fast
before i change my mind
as i am highly prized

it is none of your concern
i wet my whistle while i work
'cause i look so good on paper
that it doesn't even matter
how bad i treat my liver
or that i fall apart in person


i presuppose
a call tomorrow
i'll be sitting by the phone
celebrating with a bottle

of all misfortune, the worst kind of fate is to have been happy.

"...that it doesn't even matter..."
how true. wittily and pithily put, this. incisive analysis of the way modern business- actually, vast swathes of society in general work... or don't. love the dark, cynical and bitter humour that simmers beneath the surface of your lyrics. enjoyed.

my humor to the tt's
much thanks for the generous comments. this is part of a larger project that has been slow in coming. i wish i had more time for both reading and writing, but there are so many distractions. i suppose i will finish it eventually.
