The Lyrics

There is way too much bigotry in the workplace, believe me I know, I've be fired twice because of it! So I know it well!
This boss fired this girl
((((Cause)))) her breasts were too big
Every day she’d bitch and complain
She says “Man I used to be raking in the bread”
And now it’s all down the drain

She’d really bust her ass
And work her hands to the bone
To make absolutely no gain
But her boss expects too much and he let her go
Well my dear
Let me explain:

I just say, I just say yo, yo pay
Don’t know Why we can’t keep a job
Say yo pay, Say yo pay me, no way
Don’t know Why we can’t keep a job

I guess all the hard work, well it isn’t enough
To keep up with the bosses fast pace
I guess all the hard work, well it isn’t enough
But it’s a damn job and not a race

I just say, I just say yo, yo pay
Don’t know Why we can’t keep a job
Say yo pay, Say yo pay me, no way
Don’t know Why we can’t keep a job

Well I guess it’s ain’t easy standing in the unemployment line oh yeah
But you could let SSI and Welfare from now on
Pay your way

Let me tell you about another case now

This boss fired this man
((((Cause)))) his ass was too fat
Every day he’d bitch and complain
But his boss expects too much and he let him go
Well my friend
Let me explain:

I just say, I just say yo, yo pay
Don’t know Why we can’t keep a job
Say yo pay, Say yo pay me, no way
Don’t know Why we can’t keep a job
Oh yeah
I’m going to have to let you go
You’re too damn slow
Don’t know Why we can’t keep a job
Say yo pay, Say yo pay me, no way
Don’t know Why we can’t keep a job

(Spoken: Now that’s advice anyone can employ)

There is something that I don't understand. Why must I keep reminding people to V or C on my parodies? I feel as if I should be very well know at this site by now, and shouldn't be overlooked. I am not angry, just puzzled.

Yeah, the economy is still bad and there's still a high rate of unemployment...as well as discrimination. I also wrote a parody for Friday about how hard it is to find a job using Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. 555 unemployment checks for this one!
