Senior service
Junior dissatisfaction
It’s a breath you took too late
It’s a death that’s worse than fate

Senior service
Junior dissatisfaction
Though it may be second hand
It’s by no means second rate

I want your neck
I want the seat that you sit at
I want your cheque
Because they told me I would get on
I wanna chop off your head and watch it roll into the basket
If you should drop dead tonight then they won’t have to ask me twice

They took me in the office and they told me very carefully
The way that I could benefit from death and disability

I want your company car
I want your girlfriend and love
I want your place at the bar
Because there’s always another man
To chop off your head and watch it roll into the basket
If you should drop dead tonight then they won’t have to ask me twice
