The Lyrics

Boss bought a single community printer and took away our individual printers.
Verse 1:

When I think back
On all the printers back in high school
It’s a wonder
I could print at all
And though my lack of Hewlett-Packards
Didn’t hurt me none
It looked just like the printing on a stall


They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world’s
A sunny day, oh yeah
It’s ‘n LJ----500
I love to print photographs
So mamma, don’t take my LaserJet away

Verse 2:

All the old pics of girls I knew
When I was single
Take and hang them all up
In the light
I know they’d never match
The output of my LaserJet
Everything looks worse
In black and white
(Chorus, then Bridge)


Mamma don’t take my LaserJet away
Mamma don’t take my LaserJet away
Mamma don’t take my LaserJet away

Momma don’t take my LaserJet
Momma don’t take my LaserJet
Momma, don’t take my LaserJet away

Momma, don’t take my LaserJet
Thinking about it makes me sweat
Momma don’t take my LaserJet away

Momma don’t take my LaserJet, wooo-o-oo
Momma don’t take my LaserJet away
(Instrumental break and fade out)
