The Lyrics

It doesn't matter how you get paid, the company always wins.
It’s that or hourly

There’s a type of job
Where you are on the clock
If you take a little break you
Find your pay is docked

Because you’re hourly
They pay it sourly

Then the day comes you get promoted
You have made the grade
Then you find your overtime
Is never ever paid

They call it salary
It’s pretty foul you see

It’s almost slavery

And then there’s salary
It’s paycheck robbery
