Carol Anne (woke up today and she didn’t want to go to work)
By Andrew J. Williamson "Leopard" 2002/2007/2016

Carol Anne woke up today and she didn’t want to go to work
Serving coffee has become a drag,
And yesterday the boss was a jerk

Yes I know we all have days like that some days
But take it out on the punters not me
Because they don’t care what you think
Just as long as I’m there to make their drinks
In just my special way

Because altho’ I hate to say it I’ve got it all down for the regulars
Know the strength of their beverages ands their favorite flavors
I know what the size of their cup preferences and what they like for breakfast
How you doing? Here to Go? Time to make the sandwiches
Shuffle off and make the sandwiches

Because although it’s all getting very old very quickly
I’m not ready just yet for you to fire me
I can stand the grind and the waste of time to pay my rent,
make my art live life like it matters

So just give me a break and I’ll keep baking your cakes
serving subs with a smile
Grappling with the cling wrap
I’m just grappling with the cling wrap!

Because altho’ we all know the boss is a jerk some days
Here at your local coffee house there’s always a familiar face
With some sugar, a paper and a splash of half and half
And a little laugh about the absurdity of it all
It’s so absurd

It’s so absurd

Carol Anne called ill to day because she didn’t want to come to work
She’ll be in tomorrow and the rest of the week
Just as long as the boss stops being a jerk

I’m not listening I’m not listening I’m not listening I’m not listening
I’m not listening to you any more!
I’m not listening I’m not listening I’m not listening I’m not listening
I’m not listening to you any more!
I’m not listening I’m not listening I’m not listening..... Stop being a Jerk!
