Tom In A Cubicle

Tom in a cubicle, tie in a knot
Mouse on a wire he feeds clicks and dots
Coke-bottle glasses but not much to see
This never was what he wanted to be

(Refrain:)
Give me something alive
This scene steals all my drive
Get me out of this dive
Give me something alive

Punch card, the Cerberus, won’t let you by
Fangs punch a hole in your card and your tie
Break time, a 7-Up, break time is done
Punch back in, cubicle time has begun again

(Refrain)

I push a pen ‘till it dries
My boss said “raise” but he lies
‘Cuz that will never arrive
Now give me something alive
I thought I’d work here awhile
Just type and collate and file
Something just to survive
Now I need something alive
My girl is twisting my arm
To start a strawberry farm
Make a house out of logs
And buy a sheep and two dogs
We’d get me out of this dive
We’d go make something alive
We’d get me out of this dive We’d get me out of this dive
We’d get me out of this dive We’d get me out of this dive

Tom in a cubicle, moth in a jar
Girl in a waiting room, suitcases in the car
Time card in pieces like snowflakes in May
This is always just what he wanted to say:

(Refrain)
