    WORK
    *********

    Dirty little 4 letter word
    Or a joyful noise ~
    When it's heard
    Kind of stuff you do
    Until you're bored
    Earthbound...
    Cursed by the Lord

    Waiting for a coffee break
    Tryin' not to get there late
    Doing things for hourly pay
    You won't do any other way

    Sucking-up to all that tail
    Started with a mop and a pail
    Trying to move up in scale
    Lose... the cotton bale
