This is Joke Song

You know I thought I’d tell you what it’s like to be in a band n’ stuff.
Or what it’s like, ‘cause it can be fun but a lot of the time it’s really fucked and a pain in the ass.
So I’m gonna tell you this story that, sorta equivocates what I feel about, you know, show business in general.

And the story’s about this guy who worked for Circus Vargas and his main job was to take care of the elephants.
And he didn’t mind the job enough, and he was just sorta, got paid like 6/7 bucks an hour and he’s pretty happy he just had to clean up after the elephants.
And the really nasty part of the job was that he had to give them enemas right before they got on the buses or the trains or whatever, so they wouldn’t shit all over their compartments, you know, while they’re on the trains n’ buses n’ trucks n’ shit.
So he had to stick his fist right up there and give them enemas, you know, it was a real drag of a thing but he didn’t mind it, you know, one day he’s doing it and this guy comes walking by and goes:
“What the fuck are you doing man? That’s… that’s… what are you doing that for?
You don’t need to do that kind of degrading stuff”
And he goes “Oh I don’t mind you know, it’s a fine job”
And uh, and the guy goes “You’re crazy man, you could make that kind of money doing anything you don’t need to degrade yourself like that.
You should quit this job. Y’know just quit. Just fuckin’, y’know, just tell them you’ve quit”
And the guy said “What, and get out of show business?”
