lyrics

There's not a moment to waste
There's not a moment to lose
Let's get going baby
It's a white-knuckle chase
Not a luxury cruise
Can't be slowing baby

Everyone wants you to flop
Because they want your job

The best job in the world today
The best job in the world today
Guess it must be the best to be worth this stress
The best job in the world today
The best job in the world today
Guess it must be the peak judging by your shriek

There's not a moment to waste
There's not a moment to lose
We gotta make time baby
If we're not making haste
I'll be blowing a fuse
No more break time baby

Your pension depends upon you
And mine does too

The best job in the world today
The best job in the world today
Guess it must be the best to be worth this stress
The best job in the world today
The best job in the world today
Guess it must be the peak judging by your shriek

You know you gotta hang on tight
You know you gotta do it right
You know you gotta hang in tough
You know you gotta do your stuff

There's not a moment to waste
There's not a moment to lose
Get a move on dear
If we slacken our pace
We'll be yesterday's news
With a souvenir

Of

The best job in the world today
The best job in the world today
Guess it must be the best to be worth this stress
The best job in the world today
The best job in the world today
Guess it must be the peak judging by your shriek

The best job in the world today
The best job in the world today
Guess this must be the summit, am I ready to plummet?
The best job in the world today
The best job in the world today
That's it, I quit!
