The alarm is going off again
And I can't find the strength within
To get myself to get up out of bed
And I can't find my keys
And I'm sick of feeling like this every single morning
Five more minutes in bed with the covers over my head

Trying to get fired so I won't have to quit
Don't want to spend my nights working the graveyard shift
And I'm so sick and tired
Yeah, I'm over it
I'm calling this early retirement, yeah

"C'mon man, quit your singing and get back to work"
Oh, quit your singing and get back to work
Get bent
It's not that I'm afraid of work or think that I'm above it
It's just like Johnny Paycheck said, "Take this job and shove it"
I'd rather be anywhere but here

Trying to get fired so I won't have to quit
Don't want to spend my nights working the graveyard shift
And I'm so sick and tired
Yeah, I'm over it
I'm calling this early retirement, yeah

I'd rather be anywhere else
I'd rather be anywhere but here
"I'm sick of all you punk kids sitting around doing nothing
Singing little songs to yourselves
What's the matter with you?"
Get your crap and get out of here
You're fired"
Okay, well, first of all, you can't fire me because I quit
What, fired?
Consider me roasted

Trying to get fired so I won't have to quit
Don't want to spend my nights working the graveyard shift
And I'm so sick and tired
Yeah, I'm over it
I'm calling this early retirement, yeah
That's it, I quit
