  • Song Lyrics:
    I know I can't stay in this damn bed all day
    Feel horrific, Eyes are twitching, Man I'm moving slow

    Coffee's starting, big decision, Sick I'll fake, I envision
    Bad idea 'cause Maria will fire me though

    It's occurred, stay calm, Red Bull waits, Swallow some
    Great, shower cold as ice, Brushing my teeth on the fly

    One half hour, I'm clean, I am sick of this routine
    Gotta jet though, grabbing my keys and my good neck tie

    Getting down to the wire
    Yes, The clock is ticking
    To the gas I'm sticking
    Getting down to the wire
    I don't feel right yet
    I'm not awake quite yet

    Cars are stalling so I moan, Crawling in the damn fast zone
    C'mon mister, getting blisters, Not wearing sun block

    Move along hearing songs, hope we aren't blocked too long
    Peeling, squealing, Boss calls, she's stuck down the block

    Prime Time for me to be as late as I can be
    Hope that I do not get canned, Hope the D.M. understands

    Straight ahead, Great at last, Gotta open it up fast
    Or I'll face some mean face, Hear how I'll be replaced

    Now things are really dire
    My stomach is turning
    For more time I'm yearning
    Hope I do not expire
    Though I do not like it
    Can't afford to spike it

    What a shock, beat the clock, Now the doors shall be unlocked
    Looking on up at the sky, Sun is shining really bright

    Through the shift I crawl, Though I really want to fall
    My eyes aren't opened wide, I feel like my mind is fried

    I'm feeling really sore, Think I need the doctor
    Gotta go, but no, "We're too busy" says Joe

    So I beg and plead, I got down on my knees
    Just look at me now bro, I look like a big toad

    He thinks I am a liar
    No his heart ain't bleeding
    From the words I'm feeding
    Think my head is on fire
    He don't want to hear it
    Said "Advil will clear it"

    Hey What a day it's been, Feeling better than I'd been
    My grins within, 'cause the clock is tickin'

    Time to go and party y'all, Party at a big Pool Hall
    It's At night I cringe, I went on a Nacho binge

    Complex subject, What I do with my checks though I was through
    Though I was up all day, Gotta earn my meager pay

    One day I will retire
    But from now until then
    Keep hanging with my friends
    No wonder I'm so tired
    I'm always up all night
    and I'll never right it

    Oh no not again, What a short night it has been
    Tick Tock-Damn Clock, Forgot to put on my socks

    Head spins, No Grins, Hear me whine, no time to dine
    Before my day's began, Already have evening plans

    Gotta go to work I sigh, Button up and grab that tie
    Breaking sweat as I jet, Hope I'm not late yet

    Speeding to get to the store, Don't want to hear the boss roar
    Get there to count out the drawers, Man this story is a bore

    Getting down to the wire
    Yes the clock is ticking
    And my @$$ it's kickin'
    Getting down to the wire
    But live just goes on,
    it will still go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on

    This is what life requires
    Gotta earn a living
    Take what they are giving
    It's not what we desire
    If you do not like it
    They'll say "Take a hike kid"

    Getting down to the wire
    Yes the clock is ticking
    And my @$$ it's kickin'
    Getting down to the wire
