Don't quit your day job
 Corporate-cry baby
 A bit wiser and a whole lot older, feelin' bolder
 Suckin' up to the last stockholder with a
 Golden parachute slung over your shoulder
 Another fool got stuck in the whirlpool
 Lookin' for a fast break, not enough cake to go 'round
 Another brother goes down, and he's out of the gene pool
 Day after day, night after night if the money is right
 The campaign goes on to make right seem wrong
 With computer animation and a hip-hop song
 Land of opportunity, this is the
 Don't quit your day job
 Suckin' up to the aristocracy
 Not even sure if you like democracy
 Tryin' to establish an American royalty, a personal dynasty
 Let the buyer beware, it's a jungle out there
 So buy my advice and don't think twice
 Then me and your money will go someplace sunny
 Kiss and tell, got a book to sell
 'Cause you don't excel or do anything well
 Since you slipped past thirty, better keep the sex dirty
 Mo' money, mo' money, mo' money
