about

Inspired by several years working in the corporate environment, Quitter embodies all of the secret fantasies shared by my coworkers and I. Sometimes life does imitate art, though.

lyrics

Found a dollar in the pocket of an old dress shirt
Kept the buck - tore the shirt up and threw it in the dirt
Stare at me like I'm crazy but my feelings ain't hurt
I ain't worried 'bout a thing 'cause I don't have to go to work


I quit my job
It was sucking the life out of me
Let me tell you how it feels to be free
I'm broke but I'm happy as can be
It wasn't worth the agony I did it


Read the paper every morning and savor every minute
Play the lotto every Thursday and hope to hell I win it
Deep down you want to do this though you might never admit it
I ain't worried 'bout a thing just don't tell my girl I did it


[spoken]
Hey buddy...missed you at the big meeting.
Are you doing okay? You look a little green around the gills.
Did you get the big email? It's really important.
There's gonna be a big, big meeting next week.
Didja get that?


Thumbtacks toner paper clips
Legal pads and message slips
Corporate climbing politics
All those jerks can suck on this: I quit!
