The Lyrics

I was eatin' at my desk (eatin' at my desk...)
When the boss, she shrieked my name' (...boss, she shrieked my na-a-ame...)
She said, "Hey you! Lou! (...oooh...)
Food and a drink? Get movin'! (...eatin' at my desk...)
Your report is due at three!" (...'port is due at three-ee-ee...)
I said, "the one that's due next MONTH, you mean...?"
(I tell you, she bugs me... she bugs me...)
She grabbed my sandwich and she shoved me, she said...
"Lunch at 5 o'clock!
Eat Lunch at 5 o'clock!"
That crazy bitch shoved me!
(...she shovedme, shovedme, shovedme, shovedme...)

So I went to Personnel, (...went to Personnel...)
And I spoke to Leo Jay* (...oy vey... Leo Jay-ay-ay...)
He said, "Stay cool, Lou... (
Who do you think you're foolin'? (...only Personnel...)
She's the Comp'ny president!" (...she's the one in cha-a-arge...)
So I'm pretty sure no harm was meant...
I told him, "She shoved me, she SHOVED me!
She grabbed my sandwich and she dumped it, she said...
"Lunch at 5 o'clock!
Eat lunch at 5 o'clock!
That lady -- she shoved me..."

So I saw the Labor Board, (...where the folks are bored...)
Cause I planned to make her pay, (, 'til Labor day-ay-ay...)
They said, "Nay. You? Sue? (...Who...?)
Suit's gonna sink... "Unproven!"... (...nay, can't make her pay...)
You're too rich, and white and male - (...prob'ly went to Ya-a-ale...)
If you were old, or poor, or not so pale..."
Bitch stole my sandwich and she dumped it! She said...
'Lunch at 5 o'clock!'
That nut is off her rocker!
Crazy! She SHOVED ME!"

So I hired me a shark, (...hired me a shark...)
From the town they call 'L.A.' (...where the Lakers play-ay-ay...)
He said "Gay? Sue, Lou!" (...ooh!...)
"Suit up in pink -- she's through, man... (, we'll make her pay...)
Bet she settles out of court, (...she's the caving so-o-ort...)
But a jury is our last resort."
He smiled and said, "buddy... just trust me..."
Some kind of legal whiz he must be, I got...
Bucks! And piles of stock!
Just hire Johnny Cochran, baby --
He's something!

(...he's something, something, something, something...)
(...yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...)
* I used to work in HR, so I took an unflattering cameo here for old time's sake...

Hah, I was just reading this old parody out loud, and now that George Takei from Star Trek has come out of the closet, that "Gay? Sue, Lou!" line makes for an interesting homophone. Uhhh... no pun intended.

LOL on the original pun that I confess I would have missed on first reading - good to see you dropping in Leo
