Lyrics:

ALL RIGHT, CLOCKOUT


I GOT MY COAT
I GOT MY KEYS
I GOT MY HEAD DOWN TO MY LUNGS AND MOVE MY FEET
ME I GOT ALL THE SECRETARIES, DOWN ON THEIR KNEES


LOOK AT 'EM SCOOT
THEY GONNA CLOCKOUT


I GOT MY MONEY
TIED UP IN STOCK
I GOT MY MAMMY TAKE MY DOGGIE FOR A WALK
ME I GOT THE BIGGEST LITTLE BUSINESS, DOWN ON THE BLOCK


GET READY GET SET
'CAUSE WE GONNA CLOCKOUT


DOWN ON ALL FOURS
'CAUSE WE GONNA
WE GONNA, WE GONNA
WE GONNA CLOCKOUT


TAKE MY ADVICE
HEAR MY DECREE
I'M AFRAID THE FUTURE'S GONNA BE MAINTENANCE FREE
I GOT THE BIG BRUSH FOR YOU BOWL, BABY, CAN'T YOU DIG MY PLEA


GONNA GAG
UNLESS WE CLOCKOUT
NO NO NO
