The Lyrics

Part of the "Take This Job And Sing It" series("3" refers to the government rank "GS-3")("3081" is a government timesheet)
If you're a '3' and your career's never grown
Well, you can always work
In Files

If you aspire to be an underpaid drone
Come on and be a clerk
In Files

Just listen to the rumble
Of the green carts full of boxes
Why are you still doing this?
Your head so full of rocks is

I know.....................

The air is so dirty there
You may as well try to breathe through
Your old underwear, 'cause you're

In Files!
No one's in charge and you're
In Files!
Snitches at large and you're
In Files!
Everyone's looking for you

Some other clerks, when pulling folders for forms
Return them out of place
In Files

It's aggravating, but at least work is normally
At one's own pace
In Files

However, it's a different story
During files retirements
Vitamins and extra sleep
Are absolute requirements

And even then....

Truck loading can do you in
Your arms and legs are like Jello
And everything's spinning, you're

In Files!
That's how it goes when you're
In Files!
Everyone knows who's been
In Files!
You're like a zombie all day

In Files.....(REPEAT 4 TIMES)

In Files!
In Files!

And then before you know it
Time to go up front and check out
There's a timesheet to be filled
Before you get the heck out

Of this old place....

And if you forget to sign
The unit secretary
Will loudly remind you you're

"In Files!"
(Don't leave until it's done)
"In Files!"
(Your 3081)
"In Files!"
(Surely you want to get paid)

In files........(REPEAT AND FADE)
