The Lyrics

Part of my "Cut the Flowers" self-challenge. Some bosses have some pretty crazy requests. Don't usually go into "corporate espionage" territory, though...
"Too good to be true" is what my brain kept screamin' at me, it's true
"Boss ain't that great, only wants you (yeah)
Only wants you, yeah
Because you're scared of losin' your pay" I brushed off those thoughts
But now it says "I told you so" while I stare and fume
Right at you, boss, stare and fume, yeah-eah

You want me to transfer to a rival site
Told me that it's closer, I do hate long drives
A massive pay bonus, benefits are nice
A free pass for Facebook and more wastes of time
But the main condition had finally crossed
A line that I didn't know I had, felt odd
Sounded stupid, I confused it for a joke like a doofus
Your face didn't change (ho!)

Hard no, won't be goin' through it
Find more work elsewhere, I hope
There's no way I will spy for you
I don't wanna spy for you, yeah-eah
I'm sure that it's a crime and if not
It's still real close to the line
So no way will I spy for you
I don't wanna spy for you, yeah-eah (say)

You cannot make me capitulate because there's a snag, it's true
Besides the fact I can just refuse
Can straight-up refuse, yeah
You're sayin' that there's no-one better to dodge suspicion, steal unfettered
I'm a quiet dude, wait
Yes, I'm real quiet, true, wait

Earned that reputation, not the loudest guy
So how can I even take things, make 'em mine
When I never talk? Whatever you assume that means, better
Change that right away (hoo!)

I'd be really hopeless at it
Do my work and that alone
Don't think that I could spy for you
Pretty hard to spy for you, yeah-eah
USB on the sly? Forget it
I'm human, not cam'ra shy
It won't work, I can't spy for you, uh
Got no plans to spy for you, yeah-eah

I won't spy for you, server fry for you
Secret steal for you, I can't deal with you, you're crazy
I'm just sayin', yeah-eah
Though if "spy for you" meant "spare eye for you"
On some sketchy dudes? I'd be ready, super gravy
Na-na-na-n-n-na-na-ah-na-ah (ooh-ooh-oh-oh, mate)

But you had to go and ruin
Any chance to not be gross (no)
Put my foot down, won't spy for you
Save the speech, won't spy for you, yeah-eah (ooh-ooh-oh-oh, mate)
Might just see if those rivals want in
On this real disgruntled guy (no)
So sorry I won't spy for you
Not sorry, won't spy for you, yeah-eah (oh-oh-oh-oh, mate)

Spy for you

This song is perfectly fine and all but I kinda wish that Rockin' had been the spontaneously resurged single from Starboy. Check it out, funky stuff.
