The Lyrics

I am not encouraging you to quit your jobs. I am just writing this for comedy.
My Friend has a job that does give him an itch.
He does it like every day.
He says " Man, this job makes me want to throw a fit."
Well he does got to get away.

His boss treats him rough,co-workers make fun of him.
They pull pranks on him everyday.
He tells me that he cannot take it anymore well this is what I will say.
quit today, quite today,[yeah]
just quit it today.
Tell me why don't you quite your job.
quit day , quit today {yeah}
Just quit it today.
Tell me why don't you quite your job.

I think all the embarressment right now has to stop.
It's streesing him out most everyday.
He isn't listening to what I'm telling him,
I keep telling him it everyday.

{Chrous Repeat}

Guess it isn't easy having no place to work.
Can't have a job when people call you a jerk.

My friend has a job that he wants to ditch.
He tells me everyday.
He says that it would be good if he wold just quit,
and here's what I have to say.

{Chorus repeat}

I can't take your complaning handle it your way.
Listen why don't you quit your job.

I hope you enjoyed it.

Sir, that's why I've become such a major Flirt!! It really cuts the tension, and adds some fun to the 'cube' environment. Try it!

I must say, I wish I could quit my job sometimes, but alas--I need the money
