I was standing in line, I was biding my time
I was watchin' a clock on the wall
And it was two minutes till lunch, so I got good and ready
Just then I heard the telephone call

It was she, she told me not to worry
She told me, "Take life a little more in stride
Remember the books I bought ya, but ya never really read 'em
You just don't remember much inside anymore."

I was standing in line, I was biding my time
I was watchin' a clock on the wall
And it was two minutes till lunch, so I got good and ready
Just then I heard my foreman call,
"Don't touch that you'll blow this place up!"

    General Comment:This is kind of just fun song for this album. Once again it's about a guy who works at a factory. He's going to go to lunch, when either his wife or girlfriend calls him and tells him to take it easy.
    Once again WOV also hints at how empty and dehumanizing factory work is with the bit about not remembering much "inside anymore"
    This is a common theme in a lot of WOVs songs.
