Yes Man/No Man

High hopes, great expectations,
no pressure, no sweat,
make good your first impressions,
don't stint, or you'll regret.

Your best, total commitment,
don't put yourself at risk,
keep going til your best's spent,
your name is on the list.

Management in one more shot,
cups of tea and papers,
five more years that's all you've got,
saving some for later.

Trading in your brain for cash,
they're lying on the job,
fast car ends up in a crash,
wiping dirt for snobs.

Poured in everything you could,
or keep it all back in,
dedicate your life and blood,
or hate even their skin.
