The Lyrics

There is a mouse and keyboard and screen
They call the "Best Job in Town"
And it's been the ruin of many of poor boys
And God I know I'm one

My mother was a bank clerk
She left me only her genes
My father was an engineer
Designing slot machines

Now the only thing engineer needs
Is computer which looks like junk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he robs a bank

Oh mother, tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Pursue all your lives in sin and misery
The best career in town

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other on a five a.m. train
I'm goin' back to central town
To wear that ball with no chain

Well, there is a mouse and keyboard and screen
They call the "Best Job in Town"
And it's been the ruin of many of poor boys
And God I know I'm one
