"Snowball In Hell" as written by and John S./flansburgh Linnell....
Avalanche or roadblock
I was a snowball in hell
Avalanche or roadblock
A jailer trapped in his cell

Money's all broke, and food's going hungry
If it wasn't for disappointment
I wouldn't have any appointments

Side effect or drug trip
Don't tease me with all of your might
Side effect or drug trip
My panacea's in a Xerox shop

Have a nice day, you want it when?
Have a nice day, have a nice day

I didn't expect to find a salesman drinking coffee this late in the morning.
How long you been here, Joe?
Oh, I don't know, I guess thirty, forty-five minutes maybe.
Why do you ask?
You must be making a lot of sales, piling up good income.
Oh, uh, I'm doing all right. I could do better, but
Oh haha I get it Paul.
Back on that old "Time is Money" kick, right?
Not back on it, Joe, still on it.

Avalanche or roadblock
I was a snowball in hell
Avalanche or roadblock
A jailer trapped in his cell
Money I owe, money-iy-ay
Money I owe, money-iy-ay

Avalanche or roadblock
I was a snowball in hell

Okay, okay
Okay, okay, okay let's
Okay, okay
Okay, okay, okay let's
Okay, okay
Okay, okay, okay let's

Avalanche or roadblock
I was a snowball in hell
Avalanche or roadblock
A jailer trapped in his cell

Money's all broke, and food's going hungry
If it wasn't for disappointment
I wouldn't have any appointments

Did I affect your drug trip
Don't tease me with all of your might
Did I affect your drug trip
You threw my wallet in the wishing well

Have a nice day, you want it when?
Have a nice day, have a nice day

I didn't expect to find a salesman drinking coffee this late in the morning.
How long you been here, Joe?
Oh, I don't know, I guess thirty, forty-five minutes maybe.
Why do you ask?
You must be making a lot of sales, piling up good income.
Oh, uh, I'm doing all right. I could do better, but
Oh haha I get it Paul.
Back on that old "Time is Money" kick, right?
Not back on it, Joe, still on it.

Avalanche or roadblock
I was a snowball in hell
Avalanche or roadblock
A jailer trapped in his cell

Money's all broke, and food's going hungry
If it wasn't for disappointment
I wouldn't have any appointments

Avalanche or roadblock
Yes, I was a snowball in hell
I was a snowball in hell

Not back on it, Joe, still on it.
Not back on it, Joe, still on it.
Not back on it, Joe, still on it.

    General CommentFirst of all, why the lack of posts? This song is awesome! Anyways, I think it's about feeling trapped at a job you don't like. He is in debt so he really needs the job for money as well as food. He feels totally defeated. He stands about as much chance at succeeding in life as a snowball does in hell.

    General CommentI'm take a wild stab here, but the best I can do is that it's about having everything, but thinking (or worrying that) you have nothing.
