I'm punchin' a clock, carryin' my lunch in a box, so don't ever assume that my life is somethin' it's not
Shit I got a 9-5, despite the fact that I'm as live, as any jerkoff cat that's signed to Jive
My boss is tryna drive me out my treehouse, for at least 3 hours a day he's chewin' me out
For 2-3 three thou' a month they don't pay me enough, to spend my workday takin' the stuff this jerk say
I ain't workin' overtime
I'm tryna hear my name up on MTV news up in Kurt Loder's lines
So I work over rhymes and I'm behind in my paperwork, I'm late for work cause I spend my nights chasin' skirts
My measley check don't make it worth my stress that hurts my chest, not to mention I'm immersed in debt
To the top of my turtleneck pissin' and moanin', but why should anyone listen to me, when I don't listen to no one
Consider this as an omen, I could go berserk at any moment, like a mailman fed up with postal work
I went from happy to nasty like a bi-polar jerk, to shoot 'em down in the lounge where the fine Folger's perks

Punch in, Punch out, Lunch in, Lunch out! I been lookin' for a building with a nice window to jump out
Feelin' self destructive sick of the daily grind? Lately I've felt disruptive, and I think it's mailman time
Day in, Day out, it seems like there's no way out, I pulled a 12 guage out and shot off 28 rounds
And watched the pellets spreadin out killin' my associates, My boss is gonna get it now and find out what postal is!

(LL)"Good mornin' Mr Schwartz", (Boss)"Good mornin' louis. You've been late three times this month already I believe this is the 4th"
(LL)"Well, I don't want you misinformed it's probably more. You're not countin' the times I didn't sign the timesheet on the lobby floor"
(Boss)"Right, well, if you feel your job's secure, keep it up then" (LL)"Apparently, someone hasn't had his coffee, and he needs a muffin"
(Boss)"Perhaps you need a brief discussion, a policy refresher,... and where's your progress note?" (LL)"Oh, I forgot that on my dresser"
(Boss)"Well, if this case is too much pressure we can ease the tension. Staring today you forfeit your pay and take a week's suspension"
Boss)" You really should prioritize you can't stay up all night like some college guy, bathing in beer like it's a party life"
(LL)"Look, I'm sorry I've been screwin' up. I know I got the perfect job, but I been workin' hard on this music stuff"
(Boss)"Well, Louis, you need a good job, and I know this one can be tough, but rapping isn't real work, and it can be just as hard"
(LL)"Man, what you tryna stop me from bein' a star?" (Boss)"He He. You don't even play an instrument" (LL)"Yo, I don't need a guitar to season these bars"
(Boss)"Alright, now settle down now there's no need for alarm, try and remain calm" (LL)"Or, I'll light this fuckin' office up with guns, fire and napalm!"

"You're just another asshole who wants to see me dressed up in my dad's clothes, workin' underpaid until I'm mad old"
"As far as that goes, you'll never live to see it take place. I brought a little present for you in my attaché case"

Punch in, Punch out, Lunch in, Lunch out! I been lookin' for a building with a nice window to jump out
Feelin' self destructive sick of the daily grind?, Lately I've felt disruptive, and I think it's mailman time
Day in, Day out, it seems like there's no way out, I pulled a 12 guage out and shot off 28 rounds
And watched the pellets spreadin out killin' my associates, My boss is gonna get it now and find out what postal is!
