Chris I beg you- will you please

Take my first call, I have to sneeze

I know the boss won’t want to hear

A blast like that in his right ear


Log in right now and take some calls

Instead of lookin’ at those dolls

Who started working yesterday

That’s not the way you’ll get your pay


‘Cause dolls and hunks and even more

You’ll find right here on the main floor

Of A.C.S. – don’t get me wrong

Some of the guys look like King-Kong


But all the girls are groovy chicks

They’ve got the looks, calendar pic’s

So guy meets girl and girl meets guy

That’s hard to do when calls are high


Don’t laugh at me, and please don’t scoff

Just reach over and log off

Your phone, when you see someone cute

Or better yet, put it on mute


Then while the others slave away

You and the girl have a hey-day

Until the big boss turns around

And stares you down with an ugly frown


‘Cause there’s no time to joke and play…

When you’re in queue. The bosses, they

Yell 0ut the numbers “NINE, FOURTEEN”

When it’s like that you must be seen


A-typin’ fast and workin’ hard

And just make sure you read the card

It’s word-for-word, if you mistake:

Performance drops. For your pay’s sake


You gotta do-it like it’s written

‘Cause if you don’t, you will be smitten

With boils and rash, an ugly sore

There on your nose, and even more…


Your pay will drop, your headset lose

It’s kinda hard to take a snooze…

When calls are high, it’s hard work, man!

Just do your best! You know you can!


And when your shift is fin’ly done

It’s hard to leave this place of fun

Make sure you sleep eight hours or ten

Tomorrow it starts all over again
