The Lyrics

Let me tell you something honest, folks...I HATED writing this one.
I'm hurtin' for money
Ever since I came to this part of town
Sometimes it's sunny
But other times I'm feelin' down
And I get discouraged
When folks run away from my door

And I need a job, babe
That's all I'm looking for, yeah
But I'm kinda fussy, you get me?
Here's all I ever wanted to do

I wanna be a fluffer
In the hotel, the guy who fluffs pillows in the morning
I wanna be a stuffer
A guy who takes capons, cleans 'em out
Stuffs bread in for take-out
A stuffer, Yeah!

That's a few of the jobs I could go for

I wanna be a hummer
I wanna be paid to sing like a kazoo
There aren't much other
Careers that I would rather like to do

And I get so discouraged
When they tell me I'm so weird
I could be a magician
But my wand has disappeared

I'm under extreme pressure here, baby
Let me tell you what I wanna do

I wanna be a puffer
I wanna be a guy who tests cigarettes for smoking
I wanna be a rubber
I wanna be in charge of rubbing out
Graffiti on the route
A rubber, Yeah!

Those really are the only jobs I'd work for, yeah.

And this dude didn't even say anything about wanting to be a parody writer......wait, that one doesn't pay ;) Not as funny as some of your others, but Prince didn't do any better outside of his Purple Rain hit.

(ABC3-W) 545 Agri. Not your best work but, a couple of chuckles in there.

(ABC3W) A great idea not quite fully realised, Agri...but there were some gigglesome lines in there. 545

(ABC3-W) The video has been tanked from YouTube, so I DKTOS, but I can tell TOS limited you quite a bit. 5s on that point.

ABC - I salute you for even doing it, but not your best. 5-5-5

(ABC) what Kristof said, Ag - and gee it would be hard writing "fluffer" on your income tax return - 555

Hey all, thanks for your candor. I really did mean what I said in the introductory notes above. If it wasn't for my artistic self-commitment to do all of Prince's "Hits" album, this parody would have not been published, let alone attempted. :)

One of Prince's more.... impossible tunes, which lead to a lot of trouble on your part, but I blame Prince not you so I'm still giving you 5's

(ABC) I DKTOS, but "I wanna be a rubber" made me crack up. ;)

(ABC) Not an easy song to do, but a good job doing it!
