"Longarm" as written by Bruce Moreland, Stanard Ridgeway Funsten, Charles T. Gray, Mark W. Moreland and Oliver Nanini....
Let's go
Wanted:
Strong and able-bodied worker
Minimum wage
Fifty-eight hour week
An average joe from the grand design
He breaks his back for big talk
He pulls up, he pulls down
He's the one over at the lever that puts the lids on the jars
Chorus:
Big talk
Big talk
Big talk
Big talk
Mister Simpson says this business needs a strong arm
Some new part to clear out all the deadwood
So be sure and install that new long arm by next week
'Cause that short arm over there is through
Woah-oh, replace all parts with long arm
Woah-oh, this business needs a strong arm
It's big talk
Chorus:
Big talk (start to fall in line)
Big talk (I was watching you)
Big talk (when efficiency is cut)
Big talk (better buy more glue)
Repeat once
An average joe from the grand design
He breaks his back for big talk
He pulls up, he pulls down
He's the one over at the lever that puts the lids on the jars
Woah-oh, replace all parts with long arm
Woah-oh, this business needs a strong arm
Woah-oh, replace all parts with long arm
Woah-oh, this business needs a strong arm
Woah-oh, replace all parts with long arm
Woah-oh, this business needs a strong arm
It's big talk

    General CommentWe got a little format problem here. Anyway, when this song was released, the world was going through a recession. People were getting laid off left and right due to that newfangled thing the computer. They were mocking the attitude of business at the time (and now, sadly) of making profits at any cost.
