nah, seriously. Come on son.

lyrics

Who the hell said don't quit your day job,
you don't need be a pilot, you can take off
What you afraid of? money or the small talk
it aint about the dough,
what is this bake off?
Who the hell said don't quit your night shift,
You're a painter by trade, working as a typist
You're a great writer and they got as you waitress,
Throw the plate down quick, be that escapist

I worked in a warehouse a couple of nights,
got fired pretty quick cos I wasn't polite
there was a foreman I wanted to fight,
and five pounds an hour outside, no it wasn't alright
Wrote raps on the packages, I was meant to package in
even more packaging, pretty damn knackering
grin like saccharin lacking in some genuine sweetness,
by the end of the week, I would've packed it in
but anyway they saved me the job,
life's not about what you make for the boss
How many of us are really so in love with our work?
Oh its going quiet now, the truth that's uncomfortable hurts

(bring it back though, honestly don't be quiet - why shouldn't you be heard)


Who the hell said don't quit your day job,
you don't need be a pilot, you can take off
What you afraid of? money or the small talk
it aint about the dough,
what is this bake off?
Who the hell said don't quit your night shift,
You're a painter by trade, working as a typist
You're a great writer and they got as you waitress,
Throw the plate down quick, be that escapist

I worked a for a company a month a day,
four dollars an hour, that was all I would make
the supervisor on my case said Chris quit your daydream
at least get my name right, and can I get break please?
Eight hours straight, is that shit even legal?
this is for my people who are grinding for them evil
corporations and they will be brave enough to leave em
Believe me, it's easy - I just told em I was ducking out,
Never going back there, no fucking doubt
i'm touring with my heroes and finally my book is out
funny how I used to only rhyme for enjoyment,
now I made it actually into my line of employment
I'm laughing to the bank as I walk right past it,
forget the money, it's only paper and plastic

and how is that gonna last after I'm gone?
When i'm buried in the dust, they'll be playing this song (x3)

Who the hell said don't quit your day job,
you don't need be a pilot, you can take off
What you afraid of? money or the small talk
it aint about the dough,
what is this bake off?
Who the hell said don't quit your night shift,
You're a painter by trade, working as a typist
You're a great writer and they got as you waitress,
Throw the plate down quick, be that escapist
