It's another early morning, sun came up without a warning
Never do nothing til I'm showered and clean
I got my pager, got my cuffs, a matching tie should be enough
I never leave the house without something to eat

Early riser by genetic, take the stairs 'cause I'm athletic
Always at the office before anyone else
I take my faxes to be copied, grab a donut, grab some coffee
Picture my diploma sitting on my shelf

And the monotony is killing me
And I try to deny this corporate lobotomy

I need a suit of armor for a meeting, know I'm gonna take a beating
Understaffed and my department's in a crunch
Budget has become a hassle, boss is ripping me a new asshole
Says he wants an answer on his desk before lunch

Afternoon things don't look better, phone machine is breaking records
Five hundred messages from who knows where
Stayin' late 'cause I'm a beginner, call my girlfriend cancel dinner
Says she thinks I'm having an office affair

And the monotony is killing me
And I try to deny this corporate lobotomy

The end of the day, there's no solution, face the traffic and pollution
Put a smile on my face, I didn't get fired
Back at home to clear my head, I grab a drink fall into bed
Forty more years until I get to retire

And the monotony is killing me
And I try to deny this corporate lobotomy
