The Lyrics

Written quite literally when the rest of my team had left and my boss went to a meeting this Friday afternoon. Not having a car and being ten miles from home, I have to wait until the bus comes. Gah. And my stupid computer was being slow on me. Double gah.
It's a Friday
It seems that this day has been forever
I'm working away
It's driving me mad, and so I'm

Praying just as hard as I can
Hoping that my boss will understand
Trying to get away, out of this place
My computer just annoys me
And I pound my fists upon the desk
And say

I want to go home now
There's hardly anybody still around
I want to go home now
The tapping of my keyboard's the only sound

What can I say?
I am so bored with what I'm doing
Wish there was a way
If only I drove, but no I'm

Waiting for this programme to load
Thinking of a word that rhymes with "load"
Trying to cheer myself with AmIRight
Should I get myself a coffee
Or will I simply bawl my eyes out as I cry

I want to go home now
I'm waiting for the bus at half past five
I want to go home now
Somebody remind me why I'm alive

I want to go home now
I want to get a train and get out of here
I want to go home now
All the other guys are drinking beer

Writing silly songs to keep me sane
Trying just to stimulate my brain
Thinking of the fun I'm having tonight
And then I look up to the clock
And then my face breaks to a smile
And then I say

I get to go home now!
This neverending day is at an end!
I get to go home now!
I get to have fun, cause it's the weekend!

Thanks a lot! Yeah, I went to an 18th birthday party which was fun, although alas they didn't play "I think we're alone now"...

Oh, and Tommy, I know you 'Sang It First' but the version I know is Tiffany's...

Very nicely done! There are times when I can totally relate to most of what you wrote. I always look forward to Fridays. My computer at work was slow yesterday, too. Anyway, 5-5-5. :)

Why so few votes? This is great, SI....I particularly liked "Trying to think of a word that rhymes with 'load'"! 555!

Great pacing and rhymes, good stream-of-consciousness style, clever choice of an original song for the topic. 5's all round!
