Zero, One Zero, One One.

Counts the days into years
His Windows update brings many fears
Yesterday's download turned to tears
His network connection isn't so strong
His signal is weak, there's something wrong
Opens windows in despair, tries to log on no network there
His conscience cries, "Get on your feet
Without you Jack, your team can't meet"
I.T. Jack, I.T. Jack, get off your back
Go into work, don't let them down, oh no, no
I.T. Jack, I.T. Jack, get off your back
Go into work, don't let them down, oh no, no

The people that work at his firm don't understand -
He's never been known to mess around
"It's ten-o'clock", the managers yell
"When Jack turns up we'll give him hell"
Directors moan at meeting tables
No Word, no Excel, no spreadsheet tables,
HR send their junior out to Jack's house to scream and shout
I.T. Jack, I.T. Jack, get off your back
Come into work, don't let us down, oh no, no
I.T. Jack, I.T. Jack, get off your back
Come into work, don't let us down, oh no, no

It's Moday morning, bright and clear
Lovely flowers decorate reception there
People cry and walk away and think about the fateful day
Now they wish they'd given Jack a company car and more respect
The new starters dressed in black have never heard of I.T. Jack
I.T. Jack I.T. Jack, is it true what HR says
You won't come back, oh no, no,
I.T. Jack I.T. Jack, is it true what HR says
You won't come back, oh no, no,
I.T. Jack I.T. Jack, is it true what HR says
You won't come back, oh no, no,
I.T. Jack I.T. Jack, is it true what HR says
You won't come back, oh no, no,
I. T. Jack, I. T. Jack, is it true you're redundant too...
