The Lyrics

Ah, the yesman, the sycophant, the toady, the kowtower, the groveller, the suck-up, the fawner, the flatterer, the lickspittle, the hanger-on, the doormat, I could go on...but I won't, because parodies come before giant feck-off list of synonyms, don't you know. Enjoy!

Pressed shirt, shined shoes
Some of the things that I have done for you-ou-ou
Cleaned suit, tied tie (bow tie)
There's a simple reason why-y-y
I'll do whatever you want cause I can
And ev'ry big boss type needs a dumb yesma-an

Serve boss, that's my thing
Whether it's taxes or nail fili-ing
Clean sink, shave skin
Even hacking, I'll do it with a gri-in
Cause of you, sir, I'm a humongous fan
To me, that means I should be a dumb yesman

[long-ass instrumental]


Scrub boat, clean hat (ah-ha-ha)
And crushing those annoying heroes fla-at
Wash blades of blood
Keep 'em sharp, and give you back-ru-u-ubs
This job got weird, but I'm fine with this plan
Cause ev'ry mad genius needs a dumb yesman
You want me to, then I'll do
That's right, spitshine


Everyone needs a good massage after dastardly plotting the demise of innocents. Almost as much as every girl is crazy for a sharp-dressed man.
