  • Song Lyrics:
    Found a job in a great big office
    And I really love this place
    I got my, my very own Scotch tape dispenser
    And I got a private parking space, ha

    And I, I got a coffee mug with my name right on it
    In big bold letters so everyone knows it's mine
    Don't even touch it, 'cause, 'cause it doesn't belong to you
    I'm watching you, so don't get funny

    I'm climbing up, up the corporate ladder
    Watch out, it's dog eat dog
    Nose against the grindstone, it feels all right
    Watch out, well, it's dog eat dog, here we go

    I love to watch my boss get angry
    So I can count the veins in his neck, ha
    Every day is like a picnic
    Every Friday, get a check

    Well, do I smell jelly donuts? This is my lucky day
    I'll have some coffee with a carcinogenic sweetener
    Hold on a minute, just one more jelly donut
    They'll never miss it, no, they'll never miss it

    I, I'm climbing up, up the corporate ladder
    Watch out, well, it's dog eat dog
    Nose against the grindstone, it feels all right
    Watch out, hey, well, it's dog eat dog

    Sometimes I can't believe this is all really happening
    Sometimes I can't believe that I'm really sitting here
    Sometimes I tell myself, this is not my beautiful stapler
    Sometimes I tell myself, this is not my beautiful chair

    No-duddi-o d-du-du-oh-ya, ha, ha

    Nobody's sure what I do here
    And, ah, that's just fine with me
    Five o'clock is here much too soon now
    'Cause I just never wanna leave

    I can bend paper clips into the shapes of small animals
    Maybe I could get on, on David Letterman
    I think I made a big mistake
    Where's my liquid paper, where's my liquid paper

    I, I'm climbing up, way up the corporate ladder now
    Watch out, well, it's dog eat dog
    Nose against the grindstone, it feels all right
    Better be careful now, it's dog eat dog
    Watch me work, hey, hey, stand back now
    Look out, mama, it's dog eat dog
    Nose against the grindstone, it feels real good

    Hey, dog eat dog, here we go (doggy doggy dog dog, it's dog eat dog)
    I said pang-ang, dog eat dog (woof woof, hey hey, dog eat dog)
    I said, (sound), dog eat dog (here we go, ha, dog eat dog)
    La la ha he, dog eat dog, la la ha he, dog eat dog (ruff ruff, dog eat dog, dog eat dog)
    (Sonic SBL)
