Parody Song Title:

"Should Retire"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Ever had a boss you thought should retire and get outta your hair. I haven't. But I'm pretending I have for the Parody Decathlon...
Ain't my fave pastime
'Cause my boss
Treats me like pond slime
While I
Make phone wires
I really
Think he should retire

My boss says that I should get my ass fired
I can't say "Get stuffed!"
I just say "Yes, sire"
And I think while my
Forehead perspires
He should retire

I can't say that by him I am inspired
I would like to tie
Him up with a tire
And the company
Should all aspire:
Make him retire

His fate
Can't be unsealed
Ten years
That's the better deal
Could've been
Hung, drawn and sliced
But, I was feeling nice

Smash his head with an old-fashioned wood lyre
I could get him banned
Pass out lots of flyers
Though I am too kind
Can't be a liar
Make him retire

Send him back to his home town Lincolnshire
Whatever we do
New boss we must hire
Get him out of here
Stuck in the mire
He should retire

For all the times he
Provoked my ire
He should retire

He must retire (repeat)
That's first parody since I got kicked off because my brothersleft the Xbox unpacked, and the second parody that references Cat's "Things That Provoke My Ire".I used this mp3 while writing this.

yeah now that's a good song right there I am too young to have a job but I have pretended and written a song called "I Hate This Job" a parody of "Achy Breaky Heart" in which a man is sick of his job I have to say this is really funny and matched pacing perfectly 555

I've been there, done that. While at Dairy Queen I had a total devil of a boss, if you were having a bad day he'd make it worse. If you were new he would totally bad mouth you until another newbie joined the team. If you were slower than he was at making ice cream he would yell at you. He was also a pervert and flirted with every female employee there. Yeah, he was a total bum.

Decathlon...for someone who's never had a horrific boss, you've done a smashing job of writing an anthem for rest of us who have...; ) Excellent!
