about

I wrote this song for my old band towards the end of their lifespan and it's the only song that carried over into this band. Leslie wrote a groovy bassline and I loved the feel of this song. It's about being broke and unemployed with two roommates and how hungry we were all the time.

At one point we considered applying to become phone sex operators because we couldn't find work anywhere else. Desperate times call for sexy measures.

lyrics

V1

Sleeping in the middle of day.

I wake up in the middle of the night.

I got no paycheck this week.

So think I'll just go back to sleep.

I sit down in front of the tv.

I stand up wish for something to eat.

My best friend and I we got no jobs.

Soon enough we'll be on the streets.


:Chorus:

No job openings.

No job prospects.

I'd cook French fries.

Or work in phone sex
X2


V2

I get groceries at the dollar store.

Canned tuna? Oh please no more.

My girlfriend left the other day.

She won't be back 'til we get paid.

We got three people living in one bedroom.

Rent is gonna be due again soon.

Gene, John, and me: the broke ass three.

I'll do any job, just give it to me.


:Chorus:

No job openings.

No job prospects.

I'd cook French fries.

Or work in phone sex
X4
