The Lyrics

There is a guy in my big company
Who sits in his office in his chair
And every day
He does nothing for money
Nobody seems to care

Wife–kid pictures behind the desk
Fishing boat on the sea
Gets a paycheck like you and me
Pay for incompetency
He's so

Hopeless, hopeless, hopeless
Hey boss, can you hear me now?
The rules are crippling
What we're trying to do
Where's boss? Disappeared somehow

Cruel, cruel cutbacks in my section
Pink slips going out soon
Big boss getting another raise
As he leaves for home at noon
It's so

Hopeless, hopeless, hopeless
Hopeless, hopeless, hopeless
Hopeless, hopeless, hopeless

Nice job, Rick. I'm probably going to be using this OS soon in my new project attempt, "Cooking with Crosby". Got 2 down and 8 to go. (I'm counting my "4+20 Blackbirds.." and the "Crosby Cooks in Our House" I posted yesterday). I'll be giving you a call when I get into San Jose to confirm on this evening. 5's here and now ~ ~ ~

"He works NOT for the money" Corporate America in a nutshell. If you're in charge, you get the praise when things go good, you get to point the finger when things go bad. [5 fingers of doom pointed randomly about the place]
