Senior service, junior dissatisfaction
It's the breath you took too late
It's a death that's worse than fate
Senior service, junior dissatisfaction
Though it may be second hand
It's by no means second rate

I want your neck
I want the seat that you sit on
I want your check
Because they told me I would get out

I want to jump out your head
And watch it roll into the basket
And if you should drop dead tonight
Then they won't have to ask me twice

Senior service, junior dissatisfaction
It's the breath you took too late
It's a death that's worse than fate
Senior service, junior dissatisfaction
Though it may be second hand
It's by no means second rate

They took me in the office
And they told me very carefully
The way that I could benefit
From death and disability

Senior service, junior dissatisfaction
It's the breath you took too late
It's a death that's worse than fate
Senior service, junior dissatisfaction
Though it may be second hand
It's by no means second rate

I want your company car
I want your girlfriend in love
I want your place at the bar
Because it's always another man

To chop off your head
And watch it roll into the basket
And if you should drop dead tonight
Then they won't have to ask me twice

Senior service, junior dissatisfaction
It's the breath you took too late
It's a death that's worse than fate
Senior service, junior dissatisfaction
Though it may be second hand
It's by no means second rate

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
