The Furlough Song

Now that state employees have a little more personal time -- thanks to the recently imposed unpaid furloughs -- at least one of them used it in a creative way.

There are more lyrics (sung to the melody of "The Banana Boat Song"):

Work at my state job all day long.
Friday come and we gotta stay home.
Work real hard, don't do nuthin' wrong.
Friday come and we gotta stay home.

Come Mr. Governor help me with my pay check.
Friday come and we gotta stay home.
My poor bank account looks like a train wreck.
Friday come and we gotta stay home.

Well it's one day, two day, three day, four.
Friday come and we gotta stay home.
Five days this year, next year more/
Friday come and we gotta stay home.

Furlough, furlough. Friday come and we gotta stay home


One employee union leader says they're looking for a sponsor to make this the Official State Employee song. Whoever holds the copyright to Harry Belafonte's hit might have a problem with that, but who knows?
