Boss man, boss man leave me be
Boss man, boss man get off my back

Every day I punch in,
every day I punch out
40 hours sometimes more
I'm glad to have employment but
It's hard to find enjoyment when
You're job is a goddamn bore
Boss man sign my paycheck
I need some cash to get
My honey's ring out of hawk
Point your finger this way
Point your finger that way
My eyes are on the clock

Just because you pay my wage don't
Mean I have to let you treat me like a slave
I don't belong to you
Just because I work for you don't
Mean that I won't find something new
I don't belong to you

New day, same shit
Boss man had a fit and
Called me in behind closed doors
Said "Might as well admit it
You never seemed to fit in
We won't be needing you no more."
All this he told me
As if he'd just sold me
His face all ugly grimaces
Then he called security
So they could escort me
Off the premises

Boss man, boss man it seems to me that
Boss man, boss man you're smoking crack!
