The Lyrics

The only currency more difficult to spend that Bitcoin!
All that's in my check is a little exposure
That's all that my check is? Zero cash, only exposure?
That wasn't what the advert said, Control-F'd "exposure"
Nothing came up, I thought "Thank God" 'cause I hate "exposure"
Was kinda hoping this job would be ongoing
But I'd rather skip this shift instead

Was already cynical
But I thought this kinda shit was mythical
So stereotypical
To withhold cash for this metaphysical
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Pile of nothing, so completely pitiful

You say that I'm lazy, hard workers will get more green
Have you thought that maybe that without getting at least some green
Then awful PR will grant thee some awful exposure?
Better think hard, you won't get far with that bad exposure
And I'm worse off, don't have good foundation setting
Bet I'll find you don't care 'bout that bit

Won't stop being critical
About what I had thought was just mythical
Tempted to get physical
Can't believe this isn't hypothetical
You've been exposed as a douche
Stick to your guns, meant it literal
"Only exposure, it's true"
Shouldn't be fine and permissible

Ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh-ooh
I can't believe you lied to me
No, redo, please (ooh, ooh-ooh)
I should've seen that show of green
Real easily

This shit is so typical
But in my mind, it remained so mythical
I'm not being difficult
I'm just shocked you're being so damn literal
"Paid in exposure, that's true
No joke, not being satirical
Only exposure for you
Real cash is just antithetical
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, to my bus'ness" So damn typical
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, and you're smiling like it's whimsical

I can't cash this check, it gives only exposure
Give it to a lawyer, that's the only good exposure

I coulda sworn that I've written a parody about this before, but my searches turned up less results than trying to see if this CEO has a brain. Or a heart. Could probably find some courage, if only because it takes sheer balls to literally give your employees exposure checks. Just goes to show you: courage can be stupid.
