Verse 1:

Time seems to pass me by when I write rhyme schemes

To satisfy the minds of those who close their ears and use their eyes to listen

I don’t have time for dissing cuz I’ve been workin, grindin

9 to 5 to survive, writing rhymes while I’m alive

But I gotta hustle, everyday I pray

God, graveyard shift, can’t call it a day job

Aren’t you glad you waited for the day you graduated?

Hey you made it, way to go! Congratulations! Yeah horray kid

Education takes you places

Hospitals with cancer patients

Airplanes, 2 days to Vegas

Mainframes and databases

Pay’s great but I hate to say this

It’s a case to case basis

And I hate to break your faith but the Bathing Apes

Will have to wait cuz you’re an undergraduate

and you can’t backtrack the path you went

To add to it, you had to quit

Your job stinks like a fat-ass when it’s flatulent

 

Hook:

I carry this cross everyday

And I’m lost in a maze

I get applause or a raise

If my boss is amazed

Torture and pain before fortune and fame

I was born to be paid as a corporate slave

What do you wanna be when you grow up? (4x)

 

Verse 2:

So you’re a call center agent and you’re yappin away

With more slang than Filipino cats in L.A.

You can’t evade taxes, your taxes evade you

Work without no play, baby that’s what the slaves do

And now you’re feeling like a slave

Trapped in a cage with your master whippin you

While you’re askin for stale food

Can’t pass the test

Guessing random answers will save you

So you pray to Angel Gabriel and Hesus

And I don’t think you’ll be able to last in a day

If you’re lazy, you’ll blow your job

Faster than gays do

There’s no minimum or maximum age

But don’t get it twisted this ain’t maximum wage fool

Salary is great why don’t you ask em who pays you

You should be earnin dollars, ask for a raise dude

You would never ever let a hasbeen replace you

And you’re American until your accent betrays you

 

Hook:

I carry this cross everyday

And I’m lost in a maze

I get applause or a raise

If my boss is amazed

Torture and pain before fortune and fame

I was born to be paid as a corporate slave

What do you wanna be when you grow up? (4x)

I carry this cross everyday

And I’m lost in a maze

I get applause or a raise

If my boss is amazed

Torture and pain before fortune and fame

I was born to be paid as a corporate slave

I carry this cross everyday

And I’m lost in a maze

I get applause or a raise

If my boss is amazed

Torture and pain before fortune and fame

I was born to be paid as a corporate slave

 

Outro (2x):

Aren’t you glad you waited for the day you graduated?

Hey you made it, way to go! Congratulations! Yeah horray kid

What do you wanna be when you grow up? (2x)
