A Retell of Retail

t’s pretty damn disheartening 
Working for a money hungry bunch
Who, at the click of fingers,
Replace you with some kid: 14, 9 months
I got a bunch of sick leave
But I won’t turn round and do the dirty
Even though I work for 40 hours
And get paid for 30

When you finally leave
Not so much as a thanks comes from your boss
Hands you a box of Favourites
Only to complain about the cost
And then the goodbye card
Signed by a handful of staff I’ve not met
Their messages the same 
Goodbye, good luck, I wish you all the best
Aaah…

I wanna quit my day job
I wanna quit my day job, I wanna quit
I wanna quit today but
I know don’t have the guts to do it

Why stay in a job you hate, though?
Why stay in a job that you hate, just to say that you did?
I wanna quit my day job
But that’s the only job I got, oh shit

I’m feeling small
I’m feeling so goddamn degraded
Ridiculed by Hallmark puppies
Chocolates overpriced & overrated
Man I start crying
And it’s not because I’m gonna miss this place
But suddenly it hits me:
There’s 3 years that went to total waste

There has got to be an answer
I don’t know where to draw the line
It’s as if every pay check
Is just another excuse to buy

Better jeans to wear to work
A nicer car to drive to work
A haircut they will see at work
Or tomorrow’s lunch
A better bed to sleep in 
After i’ve finished my sweepin’
All of this has got me thinkin’
That I don’t think this is gonna work
I don’t think this is gonna work
This is never gonna work
Aaah…

I wanna quit my day job
I wanna quit my day job, I wanna quit
I wanna quit today but
I know don’t have the guts to do it

Why stay in a job you hate, though?
Why stay in a job that you hate, just to say that you did?
I wanna quit my day job
But that’s the only job I got, oh shit
