Oh, the boss is coming!
You'd better look busy
They aren't paying you for nothing

There's no time for loving
In the summer
In the city
There's only room for the sweaty
There's only room for the sweaty

There's no room for error
So beware
When your ass is on the line
I've yet to witness
Much forgiveness
In this business

Oh, you better not be sitting!
I punch in early
But be prepared to stay real late

Oh, you know they're not kidding
When they're talking the talk
When they're talking the talk
When they're talking the talk
It's worse than yelling
Oh, it's worse than yelling

There's no room for error
So beware
When your ass is on the line
I've yet to witness
Much forgiveness
In this business

I'm punching in
I'm punching out
I'm punching in
I'm punching out

I'm punching in
I'm punching out
I'm punching in
I'm punching out
I'm punching out

There's no room for error
So beware
When your ass is on the line
I've yet to witness
Much forgiveness
In this business
