a parody of "Ballroom Blitz" by Sweet
If you have ever worked for a company that uses some version of the Toyota Business System, you should enjoy this song. If you have worked in corporate America some time in the last decade or so, you should at least get a few chuckles out of this.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Cheap Sweet Candyman

Me and my classmate Mark interpreted it like this. We knew about wooly worms and of course during cartoon time on TV (before the Orwellian deluge of trash TV took over) some of the ads showcased the ride-able Inchworm. We were 3rd graders.
