"I'm Beginning to Think You Prefer..." as written by Mary Kate Geraghty, James Patrick Fox, Thomas William Ryan and Adrian Paul Mullan....
...Beverley Hills 90210 to me.

Dear Samuel,
You've been employed by the band,
You were originally employed
just to give us a hand.
And now you single-handedly
destroyed our careers.
So here's our gift to you, Samuel,
have a happy new year:

You're fired
you're fired
you're fired
you're firrred!

Dear Gladstone,
we've had a good year.
So here's a gift from the band, my dear.
So go on, blow out the candles
and leave the cake behind.
And get the hell outta here, Gladstone.
When you get, home, you'll find...

You've been fired!
You've been fired!
You've been fired!
You've been firrrrred!
So long!

Dear apes,
It wasn't that bad.
I've got a family:
Two dogs, and a dad.
So I ask you sincerely,
What it is I've done wrong
Thanks for the verse, though
in this excellent song...

Mary had a little lamb
and it got fired.

Little Bo' Peep, she lost her sheep
'cause it got fired.

Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the garden wall,
'cause it got fired.

Humpty Dumpty had a bad fall
And he got fired!

You're so fired,
you're so fired!
You're so fired,
you're so fired!

    Song Meaningit's about a former member of the band or someone who worked with the band, made a mistake and got fired. it's nothing more than a rant, but it makes for a damn catchy and energising tune.
