The Lyrics

Don'tcha hate it when there's always one coworker who's always late?
There's always one prick who drags on
Treats the schedule as this vague thing when that's wrong
Claims it's hard to wake up earlier, but how?
I really wish this bastard would lose his job now, oh

But it doesn't seem that likely, replacement is hard to find, see
Does all of his work with precision, never needs a redo or the smallest friggin' revision
So we're all stuck with livin' with eventual help
We might think he's the villain because he's never unwell
His sick leave's been collectin' dust, his trip's never hell
Perfect traffic on his end, least that's the tale that he tells

God, I'm tired that this rear-end of a colleague sticks
I'm tired of waitin' for him, no him, job's hopeless
I'm tired of his smug face which I'd love to break apart
But we'd be in a dead-end, gotta deal with the later start
Too much of a benefit to get dropped for the later start

"Hey Mike, uh, just callin' to, uh, you know, tell you I'm late again"
"Hey man, it's Mark, just, um, callin' to remind all you that I'm still cruisin'"
"What up, Mike? Just callin' to see how you're doin', which I'm sure is just little bits"
"Wanna obviously send my sorries and stuff though, um, you know it's insincere, don't ya?"
"Bet you're super busy, didn't wanna bother you, um, playin' games on all your phones, not much you can do"
"Give me a call back if you want, if not, I get that too, um, but I'm sure I will see you and/or talk to you sometime soon
Alright boss, hope you're hangin' in there. See ya!"

Don'tcha hate it when the one coworker who's always late is phenomenal at everything else?
