The Lyrics

Since I moved to Searles Valley (Mojave desert) about six years ago, I‘ve found it hard to make money. I‘ve tried a lot of different things. So today I’m going to try and earn a big commission by becoming a business consultant for G.E. by telling them what they should do with all that tax free money they earned last year. What they should do is acquire the Indian detergent company Nirma, of which Searles Valley Minerals is a subsidiary. There’s a lot of synergy between the two companies. SVM has a railroad. G.E. makes locomotives. S.V.M. and A.C.E. co-gen both have powerplants here in the valley. G.E. could make Searles Valley its showcase of all the good things that they bring to life. Or mabye this ‘idear’ of mine is just too quixotic and I should just get a job cracking walnuts or something..

As a boy with a head full of dreams
I had crazy, fantasies
I thought I was Elvis, among other things
But I sound too Elfin when I sing

Maybe I should get a job
No, that shouldn’t be a prob
Maybe I should cry and sob
Or maybe, go COO KOO

I’ve seen the world and its plenteous goods
Life is crazy, for Robin Hood
Stealing from princes is all but a crime
But men who wear tights hate to do time

Maybe I should get a job
No one deserves to be robbed
Maybe I could shuck corn cobs
Or maybe, Go WOO HOOOO!

Cheep cheep’m cheep cheep, nah

Maybe I should get a job
Working for a bunch of snobs
Maybe I’m born to hob knob
Or maybe, a Lu lu

I told my boss,”Mucking stalls really smells”
So he said, “listen punk, you will do it or else?
I took a chance on you, now get to work!”
Shoveling manure is such a perk

Maybe I should get a job
Putting tips on cotton swabs
Maybe I’m the next heart throb
Or maybe, I’m COO KOO!

Cheep cheep’m cheep cheep, nah
Cheep cheep’m cheep cheep, nah
Cheep cheep’m cheep cheep, nah
Cheep cheep’m cheep cheep, nah

Lionel - The parody is already a good "job". A tip - Declare your idea "green" and you'll get a federal government subsidy whether the plan works or not. ;D

This is the sort of stuff I have missed. Love the perfect placement of 'plenteous'!
