( Severance package song lyrics )
TOUGH JOB
Copyright 2007 - MickTerry.com

On the job for only six years,
he'd already made a hundred forty million.
On the job for only six years,
yes, and now he's been asked to leave.
Stocks would sink twelve percent
as he raked in all his zillions.
Who would think he's worth that much
when I work almost for free?

    It's a TOUGH JOB, but somebody's got to do it.
    How do I get a job like that?
    Who do I have to kill?
    It's a TOUGH JOB, but somebody's got to do it.
    Don't tell me I'm overqualified.
    I know I fit the bill.

On the job for only six years,
compensation was a problematic issue.
On the job for only six years,
his performance was not that great.
They must be mortified.
Let me get his wife a tissue.
How will she begin to live
a lifestyle that's second rate?

    CHORUS

        It's a nice job if you can get it.
        It's a nice job.
        It'll keep you off of the streets.
        It's a nice job if you can get it.
        It'll put a roof over your head
        and some shoes on your children's feet.

On the job for only six years,
there's no way to know what maybe can be pending.
On the job for only six years,
yes, a CEO's life is rough.
There'll come a day you might be fired
and your cushy job is ending.
Severance pay: two hundred mil.
You think that might be enough?

    CHORUS

        The high cost of leaving in failure.
        How would it have been
        if he'd done a decent job?
        The high cost of leaving in failure.
        As a worker, customer and human,
        I feel I'm being robbed.
