My first job was working in an orange juice
but I got canned because I couldn't concentrate.
Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack,
but I just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the axe.
After that I tried to be a tailor, but I just
wasn't suited for it. Mainly
because it was a so-so job.
Next I tried working in a muffler factory
but that was exhausting.
I wanted to be a barber, but I just couldn't cut
Then I tried to be a chef--figured it would add
a little spice to my life but I just didn't have the thyme.
Finally, I attempted to be a deli worker,
but any way I sliced it, I couldn't cut the mustard.
My best job was being a musician,
but eventually I found I wasn't noteworthy.
I studied a long time to become a doctor,
but I didn't have any patients.
Next was a job in a shoe factory;
I tried but I just didn't fit in.
I became a professional fisherman,
but discovered that I couldn't live on my net income.
Thought about becoming a witch,
so I tried that for a spell.
I managed to get a good job working for a pool
but the work was just too draining.
I got a job at a zoo feeding giraffes but I was
fired because I wasn't up to it.
So then I got a job in a gymnasium
but they said I wasn't fit for the job.
Next, I found being an electrician interesting,
but the work was shocking.
After many years of trying to find steady work I
finally got a job as a historian
until I realized there was no future in it.
My last job was working at Starbucks, but I had
to quit because it was always the same old grind.
You have any ideas for a job? Maybe you have
something that Works, .because I don't.
