Unfortunately, Dan wasn't close enough to the microphone to really be heard on the recording, but trust me - he played great. It's always a blast to reunite with the New South Wales Machine.

I've given you my knowledge, I've given you my time
I've given you my blood and sweat, but I still have my mind
At first it was a drag to know that I had made your list
But now I join the thousands who are happily dismissed

But it's OK - yeah it's OK
Don't you know I got fired today
And nothing sucks anymore

You didn't like my haircut, you didn't like my clothes
Or maybe it's just cheaper to move to Mexico
Or maybe I'm just tired of being jerked around
And I should show my gratitude that I'm no longer bound

You can take this job and shove it, I don't need it anymore
Opportunity comes knock knock knocking on every unlocked door
So thanks for this emancipation, thanks for giving me the slip
You wanted me to walk the plank, I'll find another ship
