The Lyrics

Yesterday, I encouraged us all to look at the time. What is the time today? Well, it's "take a song title literally" time!
I fold my paper in forms like planes
Cause I'm stuck here in a boardroom where the meetin' is inane
Ev'rybody else here has fashioned some way
To turn minutes into seconds, keeps us sane
I fold my paper in forms like planes
So I don't succumb to boredom in a "fall asleep" type way
Not the only one here who's playin' some game
Most are chattin', some aren't sittin', I create
Sometimes I shoot for someone's face
Ev'ry nose I hit, that's a hundred points, yay
No-one hears the flutter of notebook sheet planes
When they're still talkin' 'bout topics inane
Sometimes I shoot for someone's face
Fair square in the piehole is right where I'll aim
We'll be late for dinner, we're goin' so late
If tongues get papercuts, the boss gets blame

All I'm gonna do is *fold, fold, fold*
And a *swish, doink*, I think it's funny
All I'm gonna do is *fold, fold, fold*
And a *swish, doink*, I swear it's funny
All I'm gonna do is *fold, fold, fold*
And a *swish, doink*, I think it's funny
All I'm gonna do is *fold, fold, fold*
And a *swish, doink*, I swear it's funny

Makin' mirrored folds
See which ones will make it soar
And which ones end in drops
To the drawboard, I'm returnin'
Makin' mirrored folds
Where I'm meant to keep my notes
Don't matter if they're lost
E-mail copies, they'll be sendin'
Tryna interrupt the boss, blabbers non-stop
End this meetin' early, get my paycheck
Attack with my fighters and bombers a bunch
I'm aimin' for the neck of this pompous twat
Tryna interrupt the boss, blabbers non-stop
Bury him in paper, deserves no less
Surprised he's still goin', plain to see no-one
Is listenin' to him because we're all trapped

All I'm gonna do is *fold, fold, fold*
And a *swish, doink*, I think it's funny
All I'm gonna do is *fold, fold, fold*
And a *swish, doink*, I swear it's funny
All I'm gonna do is *fold, fold, fold*
And a *swish, doink*, I think it's funny
All I'm gonna do is *fold, fold, fold*
And a *swish, doink*, I swear it's funny

Send my planes through this bureaucracy
Yeah, I've got more targets than I need, you see
It's, uh, a big business, hope they've learned to block (oh-oh-oh)
Some, some, some are, some are decent
Some are, some are assholes
All, all, all get, all get paper
Planes in, planes in face flown

All I'm gonna do is *fold, fold, fold*
And a *swish, doink*, I think it's funny
All I'm gonna do is *fold, fold, fold*
And a *swish, doink*, I swear it's funny
All I'm gonna do is *fold, fold, fold*
And a *swish, doink*, I think it's funny
All I'm gonna do is *fold, fold, fold*
And a *swish, doink*, I swear it's funny

No-one on the corner has swagga like us, swagga like us, swagga, swagga like us

This would certainly be funny if you could record it with the sound effects!
