The Lyrics

The lyrics just came to me as I was listening to the song while dancing around in my room. I hope you like 'em.
My nose has lost its senses
It can't smell a drop
I could give you lessons
On how to hold a mop
Whenever something happens
I get up off my rump
For, now, can't you see,
There's always something to clean up

So I sit and wait and wonder
"Does anyone else feel like me?"
Someone so sick of everything
And of puke that's nasty

I'll dust along,
Yeah with every emergency,
I sing this song
Cleaning up what seems to be,
Some egg foo young
How does the school survive with only me?
A janitor from Tennessee

I can't believe my eyes
When I see what happened here
I think I have to clean up
A first grader's spilled beer
While this is easy
And I ignore those hoots and jeers
I really just can't stand
When my pants fall down my rear

So I sit and wait and wonder
"Does anyone else feel like me?"
Another guy who has no life
And whose name is Amy


Let my evening get swept away
Never got a vacation day
I think I need to find a way
To get a real job, maybe I will pray


Be a janitor like me [x5]

Sounds good, but it's just a little off in pacing :).
