The Lyrics

[Jobseeker:] Gotta keep
One jump ahead of the Dole Line
One Step ahead of the Que
I'm Paid only what I can't afford
( That's fortnight! )

One Step ahead of the lawmen
That's all, and that's no joke
These guys don't appreciate I'm broke

[Crowd:] Riffraff! Dolite! Scoundrel! Unemployable!

[Jobseeker:] Just a little Tax, guys
[Crowd:] Rip him open, Claim it back, guys
[Jobseeker:] I can take a hint, gotta face the facts
You're my only friend, The Dole!
[Crowd:] Who?

[Crowd:] Oh it's sad Jobseeker's hit the bottom
they's become a rise in peoples taxes
I'd blame the govement but they surport it
[Jobseeker:] Gotta eat to live, gotta sign on to eat
Tell you all about it when I got the time!

One step ahead of the Volentary
One Sign ahead of my doom
Next time gonna use a nom de plume
One Step ahead of the Option
One cheat ahead of the flock
I think I'll take a stroll around the block

[Crowd:] Stop, tax! Vandal! Outrage! Scandal!

[Jobseeker:] Let's not be too hasty
[Crowd:] Still I think he's rather lazy
[Job Seeker:] Gotta eat to live, gotta sign on to eat
Otherwise we'd get along
[Crowd:] Wrong!

[Jobseeker:] One step ahead of the taxman
One jump ahead of the que
(Street rat!)
One trick ahead of disaster
They're quick, but I'm much faster
(Take that!)
Here goes, better throw my hand in
Wish me happy landin'
All I gotta do is Sign On!

This is stolen material, lightly modified from the original written like 15 years ago on 4chan. Good job though, you managed to somehow bury the way better original parody.
