lyrics

I don’t belong to the working class
I belong to the unemployed
It looks as though that time will pass
Before I fill that void

I’m qualified for so many things
But it’s hard to get a job these days
Since I can’t go for anything
Until it really pays

I’m so overqualified
Now I find my hands are tied
I’m so overqualified
I don’t know what to do
The dole will see me through
In any way
My résumé
Shows what I once knew

I did my masters in virology
And a PhD on top of that
And all they ever cared to offer me
Was to sell medical crap
