( Unemployed song lyrics )
AMONG THE RANKS
( OF THE SELF-EMPLOYED )
Copyright 2000 - MickTerry.com

Take a look at all the benefits
I now have since I was fired
(or rather since they chose to "let me go"):
There's a loss of weight 'cause I don't eat that much,
not to mean I'm less of a man.
There's no boss to hate or co-workers that suck,
and I'm working on a nice tan.

    Now I'm
    AMONG THE RANKS OF THE SELF-EMPLOYED,
    I fail to see dishonor.
    AMONG THE RANKS OF THE SELF-EMPLOYED,
    I fail to see disgrace.

Take a look at all the benefits
I now have since I was fired
(or rather since they chose to "let me go"):
I can sleep 'til noon. I can act like a clown.
I can always do what I please.
It's a short commute: gas expenses are down.
I can even pharght if I need.

    CHORUS

        But the thing that irked me most of all,
        that they'd think I might go postal,
        so they had someone escort me just in case,
        to collect my personal property.
        But there's nothing really stopping me
        if I really wanted to totally trash the place.

Take a look at all the benefits
I now have since I was fired
(or rather since they chose to "let me go"):
With a wealth of friends, an abundance of love,
and a stockpile full of goodwill,
I've got time to spend, a few goals that are good,
and I'm not content to sit still.

    CHORUS

        Now I keep a rigid schedule
        with hours that are flexible.
        And my office is as near as the closest phone ...

After more than a year of buyouts & layoffs of hundreds of employees,
Mick Terry was laid off during downsizing at Los Angeles Times.

5- -01:
This song written after numerous slaughter-style layoffs of co-workers,
months before Mick Terry was laid off from Patrick Marketing Group,
where everything was done entirely by statistics
& both employees & clients were highly expendable.
