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

I'm makin' sales hand over fist
I got a vacuum just to sweep between my ears
Me, I got a six figure unit that's never been kissed.
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 your bowl 
Baby, can't you dig my plea 
Gonna gag 
Unless we clockout
No, no, no
