The Lyrics

No, nothing to do with Matt Drudge. This one actually has some truth to it.
(guitar intro)

(piano comes in)

As I type along
I wonder
what went wrong
with this job
where pay is not so strong.

And as I ticker on
computer
the things I wish I'm doing
they all are far along.

I'm a-typing on my job!
Coffee's spilling, I'm such a slob!
Wishing I were there with you
with your love oh-so-true
and I wonder

I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder

why

why-why-why-why-why

we cannot play

and I wonder
how I'll get away-yay...

Sit here and drudge away
I dru-dru-dru-dru
drudge away.

(bridge... I think the instrument's called a "mellotron")

I'm a-typing on my job!
Coffee's spilling, I'm such a slob!
Wishing I were there with you
with your love oh-so-true
and I wonder

I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder

why

why-why-why-why-why

we cannot play

and I wonder
how I'll get away-yay...

Sit here and drudge away
I dru-dru-dru-dru
drudge away.
I dru-dru-dru-dru
drudge away.
I dru-dru-dru-dru
drudge away.
I dru-dru-dru-dru
drudge away.
(repeat until fade, or until your next coffee spill)

Those who give ones usually don't explain, however I like nearly ever Pacholek song I read, so I joined in with the 5s
