She's a nine-to-fiver
Got evil up inside her
She's a
She's a graphic designer

Nobody does it finer
"Photoshopping" tigers
Simplification messiah

Crop and suicider
Pantone to ninety-niner
She's even re-designing China

Taking your shit higher
Running something by her
She's a
She's a graphic designer

She knows
Her designs on me are graphic
And she goes
Into work early to avoid traffic
And she don't need Parson
And she don't need Pratt
And she don't need your feedback to know where it's at
And she don't need no resume to get through my door
Better bring your a-game when you wage your war
A designer
De-signer
She's a nine-to-fiver
Got evil up inside her
She's a
She's a graphic designer
Taking your shit higher
Running something by her
She's a
She's a graphic designer

Graphic designer

[One very long instrumental section]

And she don't need Parsons
And she don't need Pratt
And she don't need your feedback to know where it's at
And she don't need no resume to get through my door
Better bring your a-game when you wage your war
A designer
De-signer
Hey!
She's a nine-to-fiver
Got evil up inside her
She's a
She's a graphic designer

Airbrushing out your shiner
BA from Carolina
She's a
She's a graphic designer
She's a graphic designer

    General CommentA graphic designer that grabbed Dick's heart?
    I can't get anything more out of it than that
    Or maybe a woman who changes everything to suit herself
    Bring your A game to wage your war

    General CommentBeing a mac user, I noticed straight away the Mac start up at the beginning of the song, and the solo has all the Mac OS sound effects, though I reckon people mightn't notice if they don't know what the sounds are.

    General CommentAs a graphic designer by trade myself, I love all the references to the field here. We all know what Photoshop is, right? Cropping is a technique to trim edges off of an image. Pantone is a color system. Parsons and Pratt are both famous schools of design in New York. And so on.
