I've had jobs that some would kill for,
I've had jobs I did for free.

I've had jobs I don't remember,
I've have jobs that robbed my sleep.

I've had jobs that I walked out on,
I've had jobs walk out on me...

Only Job would have the patience, to fill out all the applications,
Of the jobs I've yet to seek
