[Intro]
G D Em C  (x2)


[Verse 1]
G D Well i wake up in the morning and i crawl outta bed
Em C and i feel just like the living dead
G D Em C its time to start another day and as usual im running late
G D so my mind starts going a hundred miles an hour
Em C dont even have time enough to take a shower
G Dwhen i get in my car it feels like im barely alive
Em C ten minutes later i arrive
[Chorus]
G DAt my stupid day job
Em C stupid day job
G Dmy stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid
Em C stupid stupid stupid stupid day job
[Verse 2]
G D Well i drink three cups of coffee for that extra kick
Em C but i still feel crappy i should have called in sick
G D my boss says im late for a meeting at ten
Em C looks like i'll be written up again
G D oh well its just another day another dollar
Em C another nail in the coffin another reason to feel smaller
G D sometimes i just wish i could drive off far away
Em C but my lack of financial security means ill have to stay
[Chorus]
G DAt my stupid day job
Em C stupid day job
G Dmy stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid
Em C stupid stupid stupid stupid day job
[Verse 3]
G D Em C GNow i think its time everyone with a stupid day job unite against the forces that try to control us
D Em Cyes every papercut riddin file clerk every greasy smelling burger flipper
G D Em Cevery short changing cashier it's time to unite
G Di'll start a stupid day jobs union
Em Cand we can go on strike outside every retail establishment
G D Em Cand fast food hell hole in the world fight the power
G and our platform will stand for dignity
D Em Chigher wages and no more polyester uniforms
G Dand i could be the spokesman for the under employed
Em Ci'd be like the Jimmy Hoffa of the janitors
G Dor the Ghandi of the gas station attendents
Em C Gbut some people won't agree with my ideas so they'll kill me
D Emand then i could be a martyr for the stupid day jobs movement
C G D Em Cyeah that'd be pretty cool i think
G D Em Cnow i wrote all that stuff about the stupid day jobs union while i was on my lunch break
G D Embut i couldn't write anymore 'cause i had to get back to work
C G D Emso let's just pretend that i ended that part of the story with lyrics that were so inspiring
C G D Em Cthat they changed all your lives forever
G D Em C are you done pretending ok
[Interlude]
G D Em CNow its after lunch and im making copies while im day dreaming about my vacation
G D Em Ci see myself lounging on the beach in an exotic location
G Dsuddenly my tie gets caught in the copy machine
Em Cright in the middle of duplication
G Dand as i lie there chocking to death
Em Call i can think about is workmans compensation
G D Em Cbut the the office manager comes by cuts my tie saving me from suffocation
G D Em Che looks at me like im a jerk and says get back to work and i feel so much frustration
[Chorus]
G DAt my stupid day job
Em C stupid day job
G Dmy stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid
Em C stupid stupid stupid stupid day job
[Verse 4]
G DWell im working for my family and im working for God
Em Cim working so people won't say im a lazy slob
G Dim working to put food on the table and
Em Cim working so that i can say i looked up that union label
G Dim working so that i can buy stuff that i don't need and
Em Cim working because nobody will pay me to watch tv
G D Em Cnow basically i feel so traumatized about my stupid day job
G D Em Cthat i'm going to start trying to start singing like Morrissey now
[Outro]

Em Cjob stupid day job
