lyrics

so it's time to celebrate cos he's leaving work now
and it's fine to be irate when you're cleaning dirt out
when ya find you're always late for ya kid's sports games
cos the overtime pay keeps the food on the plates
but he made a plan when he was scrubbing the floors
the get rich quick scheme to get him out the door
and to give his kids everything, he had and more
he was always just restricted to what he could afford
took a chance, a risk on that two-week notice
a new stance, he wished that it wasn't so hopeless
to dream, but he's a man of faith
and it seems, that his plan will make
the bread, the bacon, and the smiles on their faces
instead, of hatin' that their dad is always vacant
he's past the point of no return the hills are in his focus
it's the last day of work and the wheels are now in motion

you do the job, you're workin' just to get the paper
goin' off the clock, your boss is just a hater
so you need to stop get a better way to scrape a
dollar so ya gotta say screw you see ya later

she was fresh out of uni, just looking for a job
just something simple loosely, based on what she wants
she applied got an interview almost right away
she was surprised; no experience under her name
buy they gave her the world, gave her the time
yea they played this girl, and they played her right
get 'em when they're young so they don't have a clue
that a proper work place isn't supposed to abuse you
give 'em late nights with no paid overtime
and sedate the fight with guilt trips on their gripes
"we're a small business so if you call in sick
we'll go under, so everyone needs to do their little bit"
she's fed up, had enough so she hands in her notice
keeps her head up, it's tough but she ain't hopeless
she's past the point of no return the hills are in her focus
it's the last day of work and the wheels are now in motion

you do the job, you're workin' just to get the paper
goin' off the clock, your boss is just a hater
so you need to stop get a better way to scrape a
dollar so ya gotta say screw you see ya later
