The Lyrics

Oh noes! The power plant is about to have a meltdown! Can Anonymous Worker Drone #1138 remember which button to press to avert a disaster?
Push which button?
Push which button?
Pu-push which button?
Push which button?

We're all in deep shit if I'm not clickin'
This one switch that's around here somewhere, I'm thinkin'
I just gotta pound it, not hard to miss it
At least you'd think, it's awfully non-distinctive
It's listed in the book that needs re-readin'
Thought I'd memorised the answer, see
I know the gravity of the situation, please
Let me work out which button needs a press from me

There's about a hundred thousand buttons here for pressin'
It's not exactly somethin' I can get away with guessin'
Don't wanna blow this whole place up by a simple failed pickin'
I think that's a consequence, might not, still not worth riskin', bud (push which button?)

I want to remain employed, I'd better
Push the button right here like so, but first I
Must work out which one, I know I'm gonna
Cop such flack if this place blows

Each time I try to pick a switch for pressin'
Somethin' random goes off, like balloons or chickens (push which button?)
They'll can my ass if I don't stop the breach in fission
And I can't concentrate with robot arms redressin' (push which button?)

Pressin' lots of buttons in a state of utter panic
Why do I need one that dispenses cheese buns? I can't stand it
Both in the sense of real unnecessary options granted
And I don't like cheese buns because they give me awful acid flux

We'll get blasted to the void if I don't
Push the button, which one? Don't know, I know I
Should've kept that book, but no, I kinda
Swapped it for some pastry rolls (push which button?)
There's no point in bein' coy, I gotta
Push the button because I know how we'll die
If it ends up that I don't, we're gonna
Have our atoms up and boiled

Push which button, man? Push, push which button here, man (all these options for me to pick)?
Push, push (I'm still not hittin' it), push, push which button, man?
Push which button here, man? Push, push which button, man (I think I've pressed ev'rything here on display)?
Push, push which button here, man? Push which button, man (the alarm's still blazin' here)?

You've gotta be kiddin' me, not one damn button fixed it (push which button?)?
Exhausted all my options, I feel like a bloody dipshit (push which button?)
Now either I assume this is some prank on me, don't get it (push which button?)
Or maybe this lever that's labelled "Stop Meltdown" will fix this up (push, push which button?)

I'd be pretty damn annoyed if all this (so annoyed)
"Push the button" was based on bogus facts, I (I'd just go)
Would go into overload, it's bollocks
Hurts me to my very soul
Is this desk some stupid toy that's made for (I've gone button crazy)
"Push the button" games with dumb schmoes, want no lies ("Push which button?" "None, Steve")
Did I waste time readin' over that book (learnin' buttons for weeks, long weeks)?
Never been a fan of trolls (don't like trolls)
Pulled the stupid lever, oy, it fixed it (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Stupid buttons did jack, should know that ain't right (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
PA told us to go home, I'm gonna (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Check for hidden cam'ras, though (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)

Not so much pulling a Homer as it is pulling a lever.

What are the odds? I listened to the original as late as some three or four weeks ago, it's a song I actually had in mind for One Week Notice! Or at least enough so to briefly check it out with a loose "spread the butter" idea in the back of my head for own (no pun intended) use. Pushing 5 x 3 for you.

Have you given the One Week Notice any more thought? Agrimorfee is hosting the current round, we're past the first three testing phase.
