Once upon a time there was a guy named Joe
And Joe hated his job
He woke up in the morning, he was late for work
Joe hated his job
He went out to the car to start it
His tires were flat and he was out of gas
He was late so he called his friend to give him a ride
But he had already left for work
So he ran to the bus
But the bus had already gone

And he started thinking about his dog
And he started thinking about his kids
And he started thinking about his wife
And he started thinking about his car

And Joe hates work
Joe's a psycho, he hates his job
All he can think about all day long
Is his wife, his kids, his car, and his dog
Joe's a psycho, he hates his job
All he can think about all day long
Is his wife, his kids, his car, and his dog

After he had gotten to work
He decided he would eat his lunch
He went to the usual diner
And had four too many beers
Upon this he thinking about how nice it would be
To go out and buy a gun which he quickly did

And while he was walking home
He started thinking about his wife
He started thinking about his car
He started thinking about his dog
He started thinking about his kids
He started thinking about his job

And Joe hates work
Joe's a psycho, he hates his job
All he can think about all day long
Is his wife, his kids, his car, and his dog
Joe's a psycho, he hates his job
All he can think about all day long
Is his wife, his kids, his car, and his dog

Then Joe walked in the house
The kids had just gotten home from school
He loaded his revolver
He went to the doghouse
He shot the dog
He went towards his 1983 Cordoba
And he blew it away in the engine
He then went into the kitchen
And shot his wife dead
He then went into the family room
Shot the television and shot his kids

And he started thinking about his wife
And he started thinking about his dog
And he started thinking about his job
And he started thinking about his kids

And Joe hates work
Joe's a psycho, he hates his job
All he can think about all day long
Is his wife, his kids, his car, and his dog
Joe's a psycho, he hates his job
All he can think about all day long
Is his wife, his kids, his car, and his dog
Joe's a psycho, he hates his job
All he can think about all day long
Is his wife, his kids, his car, and his dog

And then he woke up, ten minutes late for work
