(instrumental opening)

I've lost patience before.
Loaded ink and closed the door.
Enlarge, give me copies, four.

I chose a lousy one.
Copier gives us no fun.
Staples sold us lousy kind.
I'm about to lose my mind!

You've made me no pretty copies!
I'm so mad you came into my life!

The other one was true.
Till the day its circuits blew.
I had to go purchase you.

But you came, and I lost control.
You bruise my very soul.
You've really shown me that
office work of mine goes splat!

You've made me no pretty copies!
I'm so mad you came into my life!

I hate you so much, you see!
You're even in my dreams!
You can hear, me screamin' late into the night!

Had it up to HERE with you!
All I ever want to do
is... trash you, baby!
Trash you, baby!

(instrumental break)

You've made me no pretty copies!
I'm so mad you came into my life!

You've made me no pretty copies!
You've made me no
no pretty copies, damn it!
I'm so mad you came...

into my life!

And I want a new machine.
Every day, I'm at work
I wanna trash you.

You've made me... no pretty copies.
I wanna buy a new copier.
Goodbye, baby, goodbye, baby.
Goodbye, baby, goodbye...

(instrumental fadeout)
