The Lyrics

Another 'Take This Job and Sing It' entry. OJI=On-the-job instructor *RAIVS=Return and Income Verification Service ICT=Image Correspondence Team ERS=Error Resolution Systems QR=Quality Review IRM=Internal Revenue Manual
I wake up every workday, as my clock rings at precisely 4 A.M.
Thinking that I'm doing better as a tax examiner, but then
The OJI* approaches, I'm completely disillusioned
As those bulging QR* folders come my way

I have flashbacks
Oh, back to my seasons in RAIVS*, I was living a nightmare
I have flashbacks
Oh, back to my ICT* days, I was doing just fine there
Nothing I learn in ERS* seems to stick

I put some rubber thimbles on my fingers
As job mastery I chase
And I'm searching through the IRM* now
For the answers to exactly solve each case
Only took this job because I
Needed more than unemployment
Have I bitten off much more than I could chew

I have flashbacks
Oh, back to my seasons in RAIVS, I was living a nightmare
I have flashbacks
Oh, back to my ICT days, I was doing just fine there

Two-week class, was it all in vain
Ratings drop, messing with my brain

Flashbacks
Oh, back to my seasons in RAIVS, I was living a nightmare
I have flashbacks
Oh, back to my ICT days, I was doing just fine there
Nothing I learn in ERS seems to stick

(Flashbacks) Two-week class, was it all in vain
(Flashbacks) Ratings drop, messing with my brain

(Flashbacks) Two-week class, ratings drop (repeat 4x)
