The Lyrics

Part of my "I Want Music" self-challenge. You ever have some get really picky about you being two seconds late to work? This poor bastard sure has...
You're a pain

Shift starts six o'clock, yeah, not ten-thirty
Some jerks would show up then, don't show mercy (okay)
Unless with health emergencies, they're dealin'
Don't even let their ass into the buildin'
'Bout punctuality, I've got my feelin's
But your feelin's aren't my feels right now

Oh, it seems that you're a little stricter
By that I mean "pedantic prick", yeah
Oh, a couple minutes, should be room to breathe
Uh, little traffic error

What's with your rudeness? It should be fine
You're not revealin' any flaws of mine
Okay (okay)? Alright? It's around that time (time)
Don't need your rudeness, got work today (alright)
I got a feelin' I'm gon' be okay
Okay (okay)? Alright? It's around that time

Couple minutes, I don't think that's detrimental
To the function of this job, bud
You're so fussy, all our deadlines are far from crunchy
So just pipe down and calm your nuts
"I care 'bout my job, a whole lot!"
Dude, is our bossman's car in the lot?
You know he's not, so simmer down
Mmm, head's up your rear right now

Oh, the higher-ups do not take pleasure
In dockin' pay for ev'ry slip, yeah
Oh, you must've missed a memo, clear to see
Uh, so forget your ledger

Not your job, stupid, to draw a line
On what is needed to get paid, not right
Okay (okay)? Alright? It's around that time (time)
Feels pretty stupid to make a face (alright)
No need for snearin', I'm gon' be okay
Okay (okay)? Alright? It's around that time

Hahahahahaha, dumbass, I know what time it is, uh
Traffic sucked, though I tried to cut some corners tight (uh-huh)
It's true that I don't like to pay a huge-ass fine (ooh)
So that's the reason why I'm barely late, alright
Okay (okay)? Alright (alright)? It's around that time (ooh)
Stop bein' so damn tight (let go) about my entrance time (you're so anal, right)
It doesn't matter, I'm still here to work the grind (ooh)
Your job's the same as mine and it's not Time Lord, right (no Time Lord, that's right)
Okay (okay)? Alright? It's around that time (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)

Yeah, yeah, it's around that time

And this is why I always leave 15-20 minutes before Google Maps says I should. That and I don't trust traffic. And because it's a holdover from when I took the bus and I never trusted the bus to be on time. And because I'm a slow walker. And because I'm bad at geography okay there's a lot of reasons I'll shut up now.
