The Lyrics

Another parody dedicated to those who have to balance giving assistance to callers while being timed per phone call. Oh yeah, did I mention that some companies have a more or less mandatory script for agents to use?
My phone has just rung, and I’ll try to answer
Any questions now coming from you
Please recall, when you call, there’s a script I must follow
For people do listen, it’s true

Now if I had the time to assist you completely
I’d do it, with all kinds of care
But you know, there’s a clock, and it’s already ticking
Too much time, I simply don’t dare!

Oh, there never seems to be enough time
To help the folks you want to so, as you find them
I've helped enough good folks to know
They can talk to me, if I don’t know, I’ll remind them

If I had no clock that tracked conversation
Or knew I had plenty of time
I’d stay on the phone and work with each problem
You had, or would later define

So there never is sufficient time
To help those who some problems find
I've asked for help just so you know
I’ll work with you as long as there’s time . . .
