Lyrics

Pink button down shirt and
Tan khaki pants and
Leather brown shoes on my feet.
Paperwork in piles and
Dirty dusty keys and
Coffee stains on my seat.
Email with a question,
Email with the info,
Email to read or delete.
One soul in a cubicle checked out
One soul in an office scheming
One soul crying out, crying out for relief.
And I am getting out of the way.
I am moving out of the way.
I am stepping out of the way.
Fresh face by the microwave,
Fresh food in the Tupperware,
Small talk and wait for the bell.
Secret sauce on my tofu,
Secret thought not to tell you,
Ring tone for the text on my cell.
Backspace for the mistake,
Back pain and the headache,
Big plans for the new fiscal year.
Kissing up to the boss crew
Meeting up in the board room
And I’m getting myself, myself out of here.
And I am getting out of the way.
I am moving out of the way.
I am stepping out of the way.
Now!
And I am getting out of the way.
I am moving out of the way.
I am stepping out of the way.
