Cartoon

(Tony Powers)
Cartoon

Stop off at the Chinese take-out
After work
Spareribs and a six-pack
In my undershirt
Wake up with the T.V. on
An' a powerful thirst
Take a shower, go to work,
Take a stiff drink first
Rush hour 'n the train’s
A big anchovy can,
Check out what’s in ‘n out
And in ‘n out in People Mag
Fourteen bucks for a hot new
Flick that's really bad
Eat the worst piece of pizza pie
I ever had
Is this the life?
All the people in Commercials
Have so much fun
A bunch of happy baboons
Is this the life?
Or are we just in rehearsal
Excuse me - is this the feature
Or is this the cartoon??
Meanwhile the atomic weather's
Got me choked
Lunchtime is some mystery meat
And a can of coke
The train is late 'n the
Air-conditioning’s broke.
And I’m wedged between
These two fat fucks whose
Clothes are soaked.
Is this the life?
All the people in Commercials
Have so much fun
A bunch of happy baboons
Is this the life?
Or are we just in rehearsal
Excuse me - is this the feature
Or is this the cartoon??
