The Lyrics

A commentary on the immediate results of IRS downsizing and outsourcing, at the Eldorado Submission Processing Center, in Fresno, California. R.I.F. stands for "Reduction In Force." DRU is the Document Retention Unit, and SOI the Statistics Of Income Unit. Butler and Lane refers to the main IRS Center in Fresno.(The latest addition to the "Take This Job and Sing It" collection)
Not a soul at Eldorado
That's a pretty certain sign
That R.I.F. is breaking up that old gang of mine

Outside vendor made a new bid
That we won't contest this time
So R.I.F. is breaking up that old gang of mine

There goes DRU, there goes SOI
(To Butler and Lane?)
Some will stay, but most will go
And Files won't be the same

I just get that sinking feeling
When directors meet each time
That R.I.F. is breaking up that old gang of mine
