It's great to be unemployed
It's fun for a girl and a boy
It's great to be unemployed
And if you didn't guess it, we're unemployed

It's great to be out of work
I sit around the house in an undershirt
I'm waiting for some type of government check
And I've seen every single Star Trek

Let's all talk on the telephone before it gets disconnected
They'd find macaroni and cheese if I was dissected
Every single check I write has got to be postdated
And if one ever clears I will be postdated

It's great to be out of a job (yes it is)
I look, act, and smell like a slob
I get spaghetti on my T-shirt
And friends say, "c'mon, get it together, Bert" (take it, Jon)

It's swell to be home from 9 to 5
I watch Bonanza on Channel 5
And when that's all done, I'll watch CHiPs
And polish it off with a big ol' box of Cheese Nips
(now Brad! Brad?)

Ah, comin' home from a hard day of nothin'
That's exactly what we'll be putting in the oven
And this ain't TV, there ain't no happy endin'
It hurts like hell and that's the message that I'm sendin'

It's great to be unemployed (IT'S GREAT! IT'S GREAT!)
It's great to be unemployed (IT'S GREAT! IT'S GREAT!)
It's great to be unemployed (IT'S GREAT! IT'S GREAT!)
And if you didn't guess it, we're overjoyed
